Today is Mickey Mouse's "birthday"! His first cartoon appearance was on this date in 1928. And now I've worn this tie for this occasion six times since 2008. According to one fan site (on Angelfire.com), "Mickey Mouse's favorite sayings are: 'Gosh!' 'Oh boy!' 'That sure is swell!' 'Aw, gee...' 'See ya soon!'" In 1935 the League of Nations presented Walt Disney with a special medal in recognition of the fact that Mickey Mouse was "a symbol of universal good will."
