Man Meat Mondays: January 30th, 2012

It’s Monday, January 30th, and it was on this day in 1966 that the Canadian Government proudly announced that 100,000 Canadians were eligible to collect $75 in Old Age Security pensions. Don’t spend it all in one place, now here’s a hot dude climbing on Man Meat Monday.

PS. In conjunction with the hot dude in his skivvies it’s also National Hot Tea Month, so don’t be shy and explore a little tea bagging fun. What? Did I say something wrong? Jeez.

Today’s Tea Bagging Factoids

Coming in from the cold and wind that now grip much of the nation, something warm to drink can be very welcome. Many will make themselves a cup of tea, helping to celebrate National Hot Tea Month.

Not only is tea relaxing, but studies have shown it to help ward off cardiovascular disease. Tea is the only beverage commonly served either hot or iced and in any season. While drinking tea has been around for thousands of years, Americans made two important contributions — inventing tea bags and iced tea — both in 1904.

Recently, the U.S. has led in the development of ready-to-drink forms of tea in bottles and cans. In all its forms, Americans drink an average of 9 gallons of tea each year.
