1922, the LONGEST ATTACK OF HICCUPS began on this day . . . and lasted 69 YEARS. Charlie Osborne hiccupped over 435 MILLION times before it went away. He died just 11 months after his hiccups stopped in 1991 . . . at age 98.
51 years ago . . . In 1966, police became required to tell suspects THEIR RIGHTS because of the Supreme Court's decision in the Miranda v. Arizona case. (The justices ruled that suspects must be informed of their Constitutional Rights prior to questioning by PO-lice. These rights are now known as MIRANDA RIGHTS because of 23-year-old Ernesto Miranda . . . the criminal who took his case to the Supreme Court.)
48 years ago . . . In 1969, MICK TAYLOR replaced BRIAN JONES in THE ROLLING STONES. 47 years ago . . . In 1970, THE BEATLES scored their final #1 single . . . "The Long And Winding Road".
In 1995, three years before GEORGE MICHAEL, trend-setting country singer TY HERNDON was arrested for EXPOSING HIMSELF to a policeman. There were reports that he was giving himself a naughty rub-and-tug, but Ty says he was just taking a leak. (A charge of "very" indecent exposure was eventually dropped, but Ty Herndon did plead guilty to possession of METH . . . DON'T TAKE DRUGS!)
12 years ago . . . In 2005, the jury in the MICHAEL JACKSON case returned a verdict of NOT GUILTY on all 10 counts related to the alleged molestation of a 13- year-old cancer survivor in 2003.
Seven years ago . . . In 2010, country music and breakfast sausage legend JIMMY DEAN died at the age of 81.
Two years ago . . . In 2015, 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER guitarist MICHAEL CLIFFORD walked into the path of one of their pyrotechnics. His hair caught on fire, and the group ended the show. He did not die.
Happy Birthday to:
Aaron Taylor-Johnson is 27. He IS "Kick Ass". He was also Quicksilver in "Avengers: Age of Ultron", and the human star of 2014's "Godzilla".

And Sam is a deliciously MILF-y 50 years old!)
