The other day, while reading the incontinence-inducing celebrity birthday blog post of my fellow Scorpio, Mr. Tiny of Wacky Tacky, I was thinking, "I wonder who else shares a birthday with me?" [Tangent/Spoiler alert: Mr. Tiny shared his with Sinbad and McKenzie Phillips...so naturally, I'm pretty jealous. SINBAD!] Previously, I always told people that my special day was linked with the following cultural events:
1. The debut of Mickey Mouse in Steamboat Willy.
2. The ritual suicide of hoardes of cult members in Jonestown, Guyana when they all drank cyanide laced grape Kool Aid under the leadership of Jim Jones. [Tangent: Not the Jim Jones that raised me, the one that started a radical crazytown cult. I know you needed clarification.]
3. The holy union of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes....aka the birth of TomKat nation.
Somehow these events were never very satisfying...and two of them seem incredibly depressing [Tangent: Not Steamboat Willy. Mice that drive boats are generally jolly.] I decided to turn to the internet and see who else I could send Hallmark cards to on November 18. Here is proof that many great Americans are Scorpios.
