“Close Prez Elections, Morning Whiskey Breaks and Playin’ a Paper Clip”

The winner in nine of the 58 presidential elections in U.S. history had a popular vote margin under 1%.  That includes the five winning candidates who lost the popular vote, and four others who won it by less than 1%.

Coffee breaks come from a tradition in the 1800s called “elevenses” . . . where people would get a break from work at 11:00 A.M. to drink WHISKEY.

The French word for “paper clip” is “trombone.”  Now that you think about it, trombones DO kind of look like paper clips, right?
