Happy Dimpled Chad Day!

Most of us had never heard of dimpled chads until the highly contested Presidential election of 2000. A chad is a paper fragment which is created when a hole is punched into paper and a dimpled chad occurs when the punch is incomplete. The dimpled chads that were created in voting machines used in the swing state of Florida caused a prolonged battle between Al Gore and George W. Bush as to won had won the presidency. It is also a good day to pay extra attention to anyone you know named Chad and who has dimples.
