In 1984, Ronald Reagan declared July “National Ice Cream Month” (presumably after the Ice Cream Lobby donated tens of thousands of dollars to his re-election campaign). Since then, Americans have celebrated by doing what they would have done anyway: eating ice cream, because July is the hottest month of the year and ice cream— as you probably know— is cold.

If you don’t do well, just remember to chill out.
