Still a pretty good excuse for not making it to work though.

Too late.

Was he born in New Jersey?

No thanks, that'd only whet my appetite without properly bedding her down.

It is a holiday... it's Bastille Day.

I'm sure that should get everyone out of work everywhere.:P
 
2014-07-14 04:09:02 PM  
Thanks for nothing, Obama.

"Public holidays are announced by the Ministry of Manpower

That sounds a bit evil to me for some reason.

On a side note, "Ministry of Manpower" would be a great name for a gay bar.

"Public holidays are announced by the Ministry of Manpower and can be found on their website," added the President's Office.

I'm surprised there's already a Bastille Day.  That band really hasn't been around that long.

No, the real Tony "Tan" Tarantella lost out to The Situation in the final cut for Jersey Shore, BTW.

/Tony Tan is from Staten Island, NY.

Obama's gonna declare this "Crackers Day", for one day each year, you get to eat 'em like you own the place.

Thanks to the efforts of the Ministry of Manpower, I understand the chocolate ration has been increased to 20 grams per week.  This is doubleplusgood.

Mikey1969: Obama's gonna declare this "Crackers Day", for one day each year, you get to eat 'em like you own the place.


I have it on good authority (facebook!) that Fartbongo is planning a 'set my people free' black amnesty day where all non-whites are released from prison... yet another transparent attempt to buy votes!  Then in the ensuing chaos he'll declare martial law, thereby making himself president for life and there's nothing that can be done to stop him!!!!
 
2014-07-14 04:34:35 PM  
I thought the running theme was that Obama declared 2014, free central American year - just come to the border for a photo-op and your own, free, illegal, disease-carrying, Central American youngster....
 
2014-07-14 04:40:13 PM  
Doesn't matter. The whole world took it as a holiday anyway, consequences or not.

Oh wait. Singapore. Caning. Caning for failing to praise the President as you wake up in the morning. Caning for greeting your doorman in Tagalog instead of English.

I bet everyone just goes to work for the World Cup. :(

I heard Obama issued an executive order forbidding Americans to eat during daylight hours during Ramadan.

(Not really, but I should totally post that to facebook and watch the hilarity that ensues)

No, he said that you can't eat Ramen noodles during the daylight hours.

Easy mistake to make, don't feel bad.

That looks like the same email I got from my mother!! How many FWs and FWDs did you count in the subject line?

How 'bout he declares that all Muslim employees must be allowed five PAID breaks a day for ablution and prayers?   That'll get the TeaTards goin' ...
 
2014-07-14 05:10:40 PM  
I have been saying for years that he needs to declare a holiday between New Year's and Memorial Day. That stretch is brutal. I would take back everything mean I have ever said about him if he would do it.

Sybarite: Still a pretty good excuse for not making it to work though.


No, no it is not.  My boss yelled at me when I told him President Yam had declared today a holiday.  He said something about our President being Obama or something like that. So yeah, got in trouble.
 
2014-07-14 05:19:07 PM  
So MOM decides when there is a holiday.
 
2014-07-14 05:19:46 PM  
Nuts.  I was hoping Bastille Day might finally have hit it big in the U.S.

During his last week in office, he should issue an executive order recognizing Steak and BJ Day.

Great. Another stupid Hallmark holiday I have to worry about.
 
2014-07-15 01:16:28 AM  
Too late, I took the day off, grilled a couple of steaks, drank beer, and went swimming with my family today already.  Of course today was my day off, and I did these things oblivious to rather or not some foreign president had told me it was okay for me to do so.

Raoul Eaton: Nuts.  I was hoping Bastille Day might finally have hit it big in the U.S.


I would love a Bastille Day holiday. Have a few friends over for drinks and a BBQ and then afterwords everyone has fun storming a paper-mache replica of the Bastille until it's destroyed.

Add a miniature guillotine that slices watermelons for atmosphere and some fireworks at sunset to make it perfect.

Pretty sure the powers-that-be would frown on that somehow.

Thanks to the support lent in the Revolution, America has traditionally been staunch Franco-Monarchist. No holiday celebrating the overthrow of Le Roi would ever catch on here.

Not sure if joking... Between New Year's Day and Memorial Day, we have the following holidays off around here: MLK Day, Presidents' Day, and Patriot's Day... (That last one is a Mass. only thing, though: the day the Boston Marathon is run... The other two are national holidays, though!)
