May 14, 2020 – National Dance Like A Chicken Day | National Buttermilk Biscuit Day

Transcript for May 14th

Welcome to May 14th, 2020 as we bridge the social distance on the National Day Calendar.  Today we celebrate popular poultry and one tough cookie. More after the break from Marlo Anderson.

As soon as you hear the upbeat oom-pah-pah of the Chicken Dance, you know what happens next. Everyone heads to the dance floor and spends the next few minutes dancing in unison. Since it debuted in the 1950s, this silly little song has become a mainstay at wedding receptions and Oktoberfest celebrations. In 1996, fans of the song took things to the extreme, setting the record for the world’s largest Chicken Dance—72,000 people all flapping their arms and shaking their tail feathers at once. Today on National Dance Like A Chicken Day, brighten things up with an impromptu dance, even if it’s just you in front of a mirror. It’s hard not to smile when you’re pretending to be poultry.

Today we celebrate a quick bread with stability, that’s been soaking up gravy since before the Civil War.  That’s because good old American biscuits are built for the task.  Don’t let the nickname “quick bread” fool you.  They can go against plain old dinner rolls anytime, because they’re made for slogging through butter and syrup, jelly, jam and yes gravy. Ok I am just like starving for one right now.  On National Buttermilk Biscuit Day bake up a batch from scratch or get the ready to bake kind because we celebrate that too.  This ain’t no cookie folks.  This side dish is an all terrain vehicle built for watering mouths.
