This Saturday, Jan. 23, is the birthday of Founding Father and Declaration of Independence-signer John Hancock. And to celebrate, people all over the country will get arrested for smuggling.

No, that's a lie. They will actually be posting handwritten messages on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook in tribute to Hancock's legendary signature. In fact, and thanks to Moleskine, Hancock's birthday is known as National Handwriting Day, and a handful of famous people are jumping on board.

Bruce Willis and Debra Messing are both participating—Willis' post even gives a shout-out to fellow left-handers!—not to mention Alison Bechdel, who wrote Fun Home, and Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Connie Schultz.
