Sometimes fact is stranger than fiction. Here's a fact: This Friday (August 8) is National Kool-Aid Day. As it turns out, there are far more uses for Kool-Aid than many of us may have realized. How do you plan to celebrate?

Silly me. All these years I figured the sensible thing to do with Kool-Aid was to drink it. Apparently, there are several uses for it: you can dip your hair in it, you can color your lips with it (I always just assumed this was a natural side effect,) and you can even make Kool-Aid Playdough.

You can even write a song about it. For your listening pleasure, we proudly present Cameron J with his beautiful rendition of "Don't Touch My Kool-Aid."
