Tomorrow is May 29 - or Oak Apple Day!
In a video I posted a few days ago one of the Test Tube scientists suggests (tongue in cheek, I don't know?) that it should replace St George's Day as England's national day.
He makes a compelling case.
The University of Nottingham even issued a short press release about the suggestion, thinking some media may find it quirky and intersting.
However my favourite response so far has been a bit of "hate mail" sent directly to Markus (the scientist in the video).
It begins: "Thank you so much for attempting to interfere with our national customs and traditions. I am sure that the aboriginal people of England are as grateful as nay other aboriginals for such concern to change their culture."
And so it continued...
Markus is a good sport and I think he found it almost fun to receive such an impassioned message.
I don't know if he has replied? Maybe he was just glad it was an email so no trees were harmed!
