Other thoughts:

  • I have a question about the 29th. I’ll ask it on the 28th.
  • I read the holiday on September 6th as putting off a fight, the first time I read it. I’m guessing it means the other way.
  • My Mom’s birthday also happens to be national beheading day. Won’t she be pleased?
  • Dogs in politics day?
  • …or is it the drinking kind of punch?
  • And last, but not least, who is Emma Nutt?

  2. Hi:

    Do you know if Bizarre News does this for every month?

  3. That is a good question. Mike?

  4. i celebrate “ask a stupid question day” every year. i put up the ask a stupid question day tree and sing ask a stupid question day carols….

  5. My first thought was that it was the drinking kind of punch…

    I will bring some Playdoh, since we’ll be at your house on SUnday.

    You don’t laugh at the 30th?

    Sept 12th is a strange combination(although chocolate is supposed to be poisonous to dogs).

    Weird!

    Also, my code word for this one is ifuik (I didn’t see the i at first).

  6. I know http://www.holidayinsights.com has something similiar, do you know of any other websites that list bizarre holidays?

  7. Thank you…..my life is complete….I was born
    on national Playdoh day!

  8. Happy Birthday Sherry!
