Boxer Muhammad Ali Birthday

What happened on January 17?

K.O.
Two letters announcing a legend in the ‘Happy Birthday’ corner: Muhammad Ali (*1942).

Today’s youngest birthday boy, Scottish producer & DJ Calvin Harris (*1984) drops his tunes at the start of a long list of happy events on this day!

Roald Dahl’s book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was published in 1964.
All the kids read it, including Kid Rock (*1971). No matter your size; big or Lil Jon (*1971).

Michelle Obama (*1964) was born that same year. And when you turn around the last 2 letters of her birth year, you get to 1946, in which the UN Security Council held its first session. Their session can be long…

Not as long as the career of actress Betty White (*1922), which holds the record of longest television career – spanning over 80 years. Incredible.
Steve Harvey (*1957) still has a shot at surpassing her. Surely, fellow TV-screen heroes
Jim Carrey (*1962) and Zooey Deschanel (*1980) will cheer him on!
