The Monday Spew: PBJ Day

Yes, there's a day for PBJ. It's today: National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day. Take a moment to reflect on what Peanut Butter and Jelly means to you!

If you're on the east coast, you still have 30 minutes to make yourself a nice sandwich in observance of this holiday.

However, if you're one of millions of Americans with a crippling fear of peanut butter, you should consider celebrating PBJ day by consuming a delightful Peanut Butter & Jelly Martini. It doesn't contain any peanut butter, but it does contain vodka!

This cocktail might also help you celebrate Sizdah be dar, the Iranian version of April Fool's Day. Iranians play wacky pranks on each other on April 3rd, just like we Americans do on the 1st day of April. If you happen to live in Iran, here's a fun practical joke you can play on a buddy. Have your friend come over and, instead of serving him tea, serve him a PBJ cocktail instead. Then, when he takes a sip, alert a local cleric that your friend was consuming alcohol -- a grievous violation of Islamic law. Then, have your friend stoned to death in the public square.
