Did you know on this day in 1951 Fidel Castro was ejected from a Winter League baseball game after hitting a batter. He later gave up baseball for politics.

Or

in 1807 President Thomas Jefferson exposed a plot by Aaron Burr to form a new republic in the Southwest

Well you do now, which brings me neatly onto your quest for this week.

A while ago I started creating a series called On this day, which tried to use daily facts as source for 'teh funney' here's an example

On this day (1st March) by TheGovernor
3-01-10
1896 - French Physicist Henri Bequerel accidentally discovers radiation
Mon Dieu! Monsieur Bequerel, zis Onion Soup has a bit of a kick!
Note to self, Uranium salt not a substitute for table salt
1952 - Helgoland, in North Sea, returned to West Germany by Britain
Wasn't as much fun as Legoland
1954 - US explodes 15 megaton hydrogen bomb at Bikini Atoll
Something tells me I should have gone higher than factor 30 sunscreen today.

I gave up after 5 days as I was trying to do the day I created the strip, which turned out harder than it looked.

This is where you guys come in, though I'll be a little more lenient with the format.

Pick a day, any day in the year, 366 of those beauties to choose from, and create a strip based on factoids that happened on that day,  these can be Historical from any country, Sports related, Musical, TV, or even personal to you, as long as it happened on the day in question.  

You can use as many panels as you like for your nuggets, though if you want to follow the format I used that's fine.

Pop the day you choose in the title or somewhere in the strip as a reference, other than that have at it.

 

Here's a couple of reference sites to get you started, though I reckon a quick google search would yield more

 

http://www.on-this-day.com/

http://www.reference.com/thisday/

 

Judging in about a week or so.

Wikipedia also has an article for each day of the year.

On January 22nd... by evil_d
1-22-14
1927: Teddy Wakelam gives the first live radio commentary of a football match.
It was alright, but I think I'll keep going to the games. The wife doesn't like it when I act like a hooligan at home.
1973: The US Supreme Court delivers its decision in Roe v. Wade, legalizing elective abortion.
Well, I suppose that settles that!
Indeed!
1990: Robert Tappan Morris, Jr. is convicted of releasing the 1988 Internet Computer worm.
You're lucky. You'd have gotten a much harsher sentence if there were more than 45 computers on the internet.

On this day, in 2005, I made this comic:

Saved by Scyess
1-22-05
Can I help you?
I doubt it.
Can you make my job stop sucking? Can you motivate me to get a life? Can you make the girl of my dreams love me??!
No, but I can give you a "value meal" and save you $1.28.
*sigh* I guess that'll have to do.

2005 was the only year I ever made a comic on January 22nd.  Go figure.

More as some ideas actually come to me.

CC 549: Not My Faulklands by Scyess

On January 22nd, 1771, Spain ceeded the Faulkland Islands to Britian.
Fine, you keep the goddamned things.
Righty-o.
Haha! Now you are British. Fetch me some tea.
CAW!
Okay, now I get why Spain didn't put up much of a fight.
Excuse me while I go found Argentina to peck annoyingly at your country over these islands for centuries.

1848: James W. Marshall finds gold at Sutter's Mill, setting off the California Gold Rush.
Don't go; you know hardly anybody is going to strike it rich.
I'm not going there to prospect, I'm going there to sell prospecting supplies.
1908: Robert Baden-Powell organizes the first Boy Scout troop.
Should we be concerned about the homosexual overtones?
Eh, nobody talks about that kind of thing.
1986: L. Ron Hubbard dies.
It's just as well; that Scientology nonsense was getting out of hand.
Yes, thank goodness that's over with.

CC549: EARLY POLITICAL RECORDS by bigworm
1-27-14
On this day of Jan. 26, 1802, Congress passed an act calling for the establishment of a library within the U.S. Capitol.
I hope to come upon a copy of 'Grey's Anatomy'.
On the day the library opened, manual and spoken forms of praising God's work did become commonplace in the aisles of the great Library, despite the separation of church and state.
The genleman from Wisconsin thanks God for these depictions! *jigga jigga... jigga jigga...*
In the name of Jesus, I bind these dirty pages with the glory of my God-given spooge! *jigga jigga jigga... jiggahhh jiggaaah...*

1533: King Henry VIII of England marries his second wife, Anne Boleyn.
...until death do you part?
Shhh! Don't give it away!
1890: Nellie Bly completes a journey around the world in 72 days.
How you like me now, Jules Verne?
1919: The League of Nations is founded.
We were going to call it "The League of Extraordinary Nations", but then Belgium joined.

1564: The Council of Trent issues its conclusions, establishing a distinction between Roman Catholicism and Protestantism.
Okay, so we have less guilt, and our ministers can marry?
Right, but we get to keep the boss hats and the real wine.
1808: William Bligh, the captain against whom the HMS Bounty's crew had mutinied and now the governor of New South Wales, is overthrown once again, as the Rum Rebellion begins.
When are you going to take the hint and retire?
Shut up! I'm awesome!
1880: Douglas MacArthur, who would command the US Army in the Pacific theater during World War II, is born.
I could swear I heard him say "I shall return."
That's... deeply disturbing.

1832: Lewis Carroll, author of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Jabberwocky, is born.
I'm pretty sure this birth certificate refers to me as a "slithy tove".
1967: The US, UK, & USSR sign a treaty banning deployment of nuclear weapons in space, and limiting use of the Moon and other celestial bodies to peaceful purposes.
I'm always happy to sign treaties I couldn't break if I wanted to.
I'm adding a clause saying that Martians can't be drafted.
2010: J. D. Salinger, author of The Catcher in the Rye, dies.
Or maybe it was five months ago. Dude was pretty secretive.

Thanks, Governor!  This was a great contest idea, and I obviously had a lot of fun with it.

Here's a bonus comic.  I didn't know you'd judge today and I already had the "Diet of Worms" panel ready.  Who could pass up a chance to make fun of the Diet of Worms?

On January 28th... by evil_d
1-28-14
1521: The Diet of Worms, during which Martin Luther would be asked to recant his heresies, begins.
Aloysius is actually eating worms. I was going to tell him, but I couldn't stop laughing.
1820: Russian explorers discover Antarctica.
Are you crying?
It reminds me so much of home!
1896: Walter Arnold of East Peckham, Kent becomes the first person to be convicted of speeding, for driving at a rate of 8 miles per hour.
If I was speeding, then you must have had to speed faster to catch me!
Yes; I had to walk rather more briskly than I should have liked!

New Comic Contest will start right... about... now.
