In 1889, Actor-comedian and movie director Sir Charles (Spencer) “Charlie” Chaplin was born in London, England. He began his acting career as a young child, performing on stage then touring with a company as a teenager. When he was 24, he joined Mack Sennettʹs Keystone Film Company, where he made over thirty films. His signature character of the little tramp came to fulfillment in the 1915 film, “The Tramp.” His first talkie was “The Great Dictator” and of his most remembered films was “Limelight.” Often unfavorably in the news headlines, he moved to Switzerland in 1952. In 1972, he returned to the United States to accept a special award at the Academy Awards, and in 1975 he was knighted by the Queen of England. He died on December 25, 1977.

In 1935, The long-running radio comedy program “Fibber McGee and Molly,” starring Jim and Marian Jordan, premiered on the NBC Blue Network.

In 1937, The Laurel and Hardy slapstick comedy “Way Out West” was released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

In 1940, On Opening Day at Griffith Stadium, Franklin D. Rooseveltʹs errant ceremonial first pitch smashes a Washington Post camera. Red Sox hurler Lefty Grove blanks the Senators, 1-0, after the Chief Executive tosses his wild throw.

In 1940, At Griffith Stadium, President Franklin D. Roosevelt threw out the first ball…and hit Irving Schlossberg, photographer for the Washington Post.

In 1943, Chemist Albert Hoffman took the first LSD trip as a tiny amount of lysergic acid diethylamide accidently seeped through the skin of his finger. Imagine taking a trip and never leave your home. He had created the compound in his laboratory back in 1938 but had found no use for it. As of 1997, he was still on the trip.

In 1946, Before the Senatorsʹ 6-3 loss to the Red Sox at Griffith Stadium, Harry Truman becomes the first President to throw the ceremonial first pitch left-handed. On Opening Day in 1950, the southpaw Commander-in-Chief will make two tosses, one left-handed and one right-handed.

In 1948, The Donald Duck film, “Daddy Duck” is released.

In 1948, Vocal group The Pied Pipers, which by then comprised June Hutton, Clark Yocum, Hal Hopper and Chuck Lowry, recorded a beautiful version of “My happiness”. Although the recording ban (which lasted about all of 1948) forced them to record this with no other accompaniment than an extra bass voice, a ukulele and I think a xylophone, it reached #3 in July 1948. It was to be their last top ten hit.

In 1949, “Ya Wanna Buy A Bunny?” Makes The Pop Chart by Spike Jones and the City Slickers featuring George Rock; will peak at #24.

In 1956, “I Love Lucy” We could describe this episode as the one in which the famous redhead gets into trouble trying to break into show business. But that synopsis would cover almost every I Love Lucy. So letʹs amend things to say that in this outing Lucy gets into a bunch of trouble. On the train to Rome, site of one of Rickyʹs European gigs, Lucy is spied by an Italian movie producer who thinks sheʹd be perfect for a role in his new film, “Bitter Grapes.” Determined to research her role, Lucy hies herself to a vineyard where sheʹs assigned the job of stomping grapes. That leads to some uproariously funny folk-dance moves — and a near stomping by her testy co-worker. “Lucyʹs Italian Movie” is a vat of fun, stirred up by Ballʹs inimitable, extravagant flair for slapstick.

In 1964, 04 x 16 = 64

In 1965, On the final episode of “The Jack Benny Program,” Americaʹs favorite skinflint (nowdays, that title currently belonging to tightwad David Tanny) relives a World War II bombing raid at The Palladium, with help from the younger generation of musical comedy, “The Smothers Brothers.”

In 1977, In the first of 11 such sketches on “Saturday Night Live,” Bill Murrayʹs “Nick the Lounge Singer” works the unresponsive crowd for the Happy Hour in the Zephyr at Lake Minnehonkaʹs beautiful Breezy Point Lodge.

In 1983, On “SNL” Velvet Jones (Eddie Murphy) plugs his titillating new “The Exercises of Love” videotape. “Yes, Itʹs all here: the squatting, the thrusting, the grunting and the groaning. Take it from Velvet, these are exercises youʹll want to watch again and again.”

In 1983, R.C., “Mr. Roboto” by Styx peaked at number three on the pop singles chart.

In 1985, “Comedian” album by Eddie Murphy was certified Platinum by the RIAA

In 1987, The Federal Communications Commission put broadcasters on notice it would impose a broader definition of indecency over the airwaves. This was directed at not only shock jocks, like Howard Stern, but those on your neighborhood radio station. Some stations, the FCC noted, had gone way beyond the seven dirty words made famous by comedian George Carlin in a routine from the early 1970s. There is, incidentally, such a thing as the “seven dirty words” rule at the FCC. Those seven dirty words are (CENSORED), (CENSORED), (CENSORED), (CENSORED), (CENSORED), (CENSORED), and (CENSORED)!

In 1987, Ray Stevens released the song “Would Jesus Wear a Rolex?”

The Cubs have lost 26 of their last 28 games dating back to the previous season. They have the fourth worst start ever, trailing the 1904 Washington Senators and 1920 Detroit Tigers (each 0-13) and the 1988 Baltimore Orioles (0-21).

In 1999, U.S. postage stamp is dedicated in Daffy Duckʹs honor and “Daffy Duck Day” is declared in Hollywood
