Bad Poetry Day, Ice Cream Pie Day, more

August 18th, 2013, is Bad Poetry Day, Mail Order Catalog Day, National Ice Cream Pie Day, and National Soft Ice Cream Day.

In honor of Bad Poetry Day, try your hand at some truly bad verse. I'll start....

Roses are red,
Cactus is spiky.
Poetry ain't easy,
But I'll try, by crikey!

Mail Order Catalog Day commemorates the publication of the first mail order catalog on this date in 1872 - a single sheet produced by Montgomery Ward.

Today National Ice Cream Pie Day! Grab a pie shell and let your creativity run wild. How about pistachio cherry, or butter pecan chocolate chip? Delish.

National Soft Ice Cream Day celebrates the softer side of ice cream, sometimes known as soft serve or custard. This is easier to find than an ice cream pie, since it's available at many restaurants and drive-thrus.
