Ripley's Believe It or Not by Ripley’s Believe It or Not! for February 04, 2017
A toast... In 1972, during a visit to Canada, US President Richard Nixon raised a toast to the then 4 month old Justin Trudeau and said, I'd like to toast the future Prime Minister of Canada. Trudeau is now Canada's 23rd Prime Minister. Hacky Sack was invented in 1972 by John Stalberger as a game to help him rehabilitate his knee after a football injury. Chad and Barbie Soper of Rockford, Michigan, have three kids, born on 08/08/08, 09/09/09 and 10/10/10!

Too bad Nixon himself never lived to see the day Justin became PM. Why am I not surprised about the Soper kids’ birth dates?

How much you want to bet that third kid was induced so it would be born on 10/10/10?

As many of these birthday stories that run in this strip, I’m beginning to wonder if it’s really all that uncommon or “believe it or not” material. I was born on my grandmother’s bday and used to find that unusual until I met at least half a dozen other people who were born on a relative’s bday.

The way that’s written, there’d be 9 kids? I know someone that had two 04-01s.(And that’s no fooling!)
