I would like to proclaim today "National Give Me Money Day".

I have a board on Delphi that I have hosted for years now, they are a great crew of people who I have come to love dearly. Peripheral to my board, there are other boards I frequent. One of them today had an interesting post.

It was a listing that outlined all the special days in June. Cripes, there is a day there for everyone. Apparently every month someone posts a listing of that month’s syllabus of “special days” everything from National Pink Day, Festival Of Popular Delusions Day (Jaysus!) to National Potato day. Riiiiiiiight.

When did we start having a special day for everything?

If any of you have participated in any of the following, please post a detailed comment describing the day. I cannot wait to hear all about it, and I have a psychiatrist for you on speed dial.

And now the month of June:

June 1 is Dare Day, June 2 is National Rocky Road Day, June 3 is Repeat Day, June 4 is Old Maid's Day, June 5 is Festival Of Popular Delusions Day, June 6 is National Applesauce Cake Day, June 7 is National Chocolate Ice Cream Day, June 8 is Name Your Poison Day, June 9 is Donald Duck Day, June 10 is National Yo-Yo Day, June 11 is National Hug Holiday and King Kamehameha Day , June 12 is Machine Day, June 13 is National Juggling Day, and Kitchen Klutzes Of America Day, June 14 is Pop Goes The Weasel Day, June 15 is Smile Power Day, June 16 is National Hollerin' Contest Day, June 17 is Watergate Day and Eat Your Vegetables Day, June 18 is International Panic Day, June 19 is World Sauntering Day, June 20 is Ice Cream Soda Day , June 21 is Cuckoo Warning Day, More Info on Cuckoo Warning Day, June 22 is National Chocolate Eclair Day, June 23 is National Pink Day, June 24 is Museum Comes To Life Day, June 25 is Log Cabin Day, June 26 is National Chocolate Pudding Day, June 27 is National Columnists Day , June 28 is Paul Bunyan Day, June 29 is Camera Day, June 30 is Meteor Day...

Apparently we, as a society, have zero control over just how crazy we get.

What the hell happened to Father's day? hmm...

Yes it is crazy but hey...I think it's even crazier that there is not even one National civic holiday in June. I don't care what it could be...take your pick from the list or make one up dammit!
