New Congress discusses additional federal holidays

In an attempt to make sure nobody's feelings are hurt -- except a certain group of local bloggers who have no feelings -- the new Congress is discussing the addition of a number of new federal holidays. The days under consideration are listed below:

Seasonal Affective Disorder Day: January 2
With Christmas and New Years a thing of the past, now it''s time to celebrate the long, cold, gray winter months that loom ahead.

National Jingoism & Violence Day: February 4
Collect a group of two dozen or so well-trained men assigned to represent your city or region. Face off against another such group of well-trained men. Beat the living sh*t out of each other. (aka Superbowl Sunday)

Soy Bomb: February 25
Celebrate the "spontaneous explosion of the self" by dancing like an *sshole on live television.

Reverse Cowgirl Day: March 3
Honoring a woman's right to choose positions. (formerly Women''s Suffrage Day)

National Accessory Day: September 14
In appreciation of the belt, the hat, the handbag and, most importantly, the scarf. It was on this day in 1927 that famed modern dancer Isadora Duncan''s scarf sealed its importance in the annals of history by wrapping itself around the axel of a car and broke its owner''s neck.

How about:

Old Particle Board Day: November 7

People did out the rattiest piece of plywood they own and paint the only words they can spell on the boards and display in their yard.

Duct Taped Lips Day: June 17

People would refrain from slander anybody that was elected to serve that they didn't vote for.

Don't forget Sept. 3rd. is Cheap Labor Day,
and Tues. Sept. 4th will be "I Hate Government Schools Day"
They picked that day because even students and teachers are inclined to want to take it off to celebrate.
