Tuesday was a very memorable day for a lot of fun reasons!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, VINCENT MARTELLA!
First, it was Vincent Martella’s birthday!! Some of you may know him as Chris’ friend Greg from, Everybody Hate’s Chris. But, about 99.999999% of you may be more familiar with him as that imaginative kid with the pointy nose from Phineas and Ferb. Yep! “Phineas” celebrated his birthday! Also, it just so happens that on Sunday, he joined the cast of The Walking Dead for its fourth season premiere!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY VINCENT!

NATIONAL GROUCH DAY!
Did you know that yesterday was officially, “National Grouch Day?!” (as dubbed by Sesame Street Magazine). So, if you just so happened to be feeling grumpy about anything, that was probably why! You simply channeled your inner “Oscar-the-Grouch!” (I wonder what would have happened if Oscar ran into Grumpy Cat)!
A little fun fact about the Grouchiest Mascot ever: Oscar is Canadian!! (See Below)
Apparently his dad is actually from Saint David, New Brunswick and his mother grew up in Nova Scotia!!! (Go Figure)!
*Speaking of Sesame Muppets, the day before, October 14th, was Grover’s Birthday!
