I thought I would try to give the Chicken-Fat reading group a little culture. Today is March the 15th. Today is the day you are to BEWARE OF THE IDES OF MARCH!!!

You might wonder why beware of the Ides of March on March the 15th. Below is a lampoon from HUMBUG #3, 1957, written by Harvey Kurtzman and illustrated by Will Elder. Read that and see if it answers your question.

If not, don’t ask me, I thought they were saying “Beware of the EYES of March." until I saw it in pirint.

Also, on a related note (I think) UNCLE JOHN'S BATHROOM Page-A-Day Calender reported today that from histoircal accounts Julius Caesar was a great swimmer.
