This Week In Ridiculous Holidays: May 6th – May 13th

Yet again this week, we have a healthy balance of important and completely unimportant holidays. National Nurses Day and World Red Cross Day? Important. No Socks Day and Moscato Day? Not as much. But to each his (or her) own.

National Limerick Day

Happy Mother’s Day Limerick:

There’s a lady in each of our lives

Who endured all the lows and the highs

That her children went through

Like the mumps or the flu

Or the joy of a pleasant surprise

She strengthened our family ties

And wiped away tears from our eyes

She forgave all our flaws

And our social faux pas

And she baked really great apple pies

She saw through almost all of our lies

And plied us with sodas and fries

When our manners were good

And we did what we should

She was righteous and caring and wise

So to Mothers, both present and past

For the many good deeds you’ve amassed

I honor you all

With this verse on my wall

And I hope that your day is a blast

(I totes stole this from the internet. Thanks, some dude named Neil)
