Two More Months

This, children, is why you should never get all your news from a single source.  As told by the July 13, 1900 Skidmore Standard:

An Arkansas paper says in one of the mountain communities only one man took a newspaper; and the citizens for some distance around would gather in to hear it read when it came.  One listener one time asked what the Democrats were doing in Congress.  “Oh,” replied the reader, “they’re playing the dickens over there.  They passed a new law adding two months to the year and the worst part of it is they have made them both winter months.”  “Blast their fool souls,” said the listener, “and we are nearly out of fodder.”
