The Inter-/national Day Thread

Today two posts got my attention:
@Tracer reminding me it’s International Joke Day and @Tokesy97 posting about Canada. Lo and behold, it’s Canada Day!

Every day something interesting or funny is celebrated somewhere and I’ll try to mirror that here. If I miss a national day, just remind me.

To stay in the spirit of today: Post your best, worst, weirdest, funniest or most absurd jokes!

And: @VaultHunter101 @Jefe @dr_do-little @FlamesForAll and the Canadiens I possibly forgot: Happy Canada Day!

This may be of use to you as well.

Zip code day, postal worker day, gingersnap day, creative ice cream day and probably more if you’re counting month events too.

Ooh! Pet Rock Day and Ginger Cat Appreciation Day is on my birthday!

I approve!

mumble Note to self: remember to congratulate…

Hm. My birthday is Radio Day, which I approve as an audiophile person.

But the fact that I was born during Condom Week is a good fit for Joke Day :laughing:

My mom and one of my “brothers” were born during Love Your Burial Ground Week.

Yeah.

My birthday is historically significant, 6th June is D-day, but apparently it is also host to lots of odd holidays too.
Drive in movie day, gardening exercise day, Yo-yo day, and applesauce cake day being the ones I find coolest or oddest (that distinction goes to gardening exercise day). The things associated with the month are pretty great too. In addition to being Pride month June is also Dairy month, candy month, mud month, soul food month (which means last month was severely lacking in fried chicken, collard greens, and mac and cheese :cry:), and iced tea month.

That leave me with building codes/ staff and … Who the hell is Emma Nutt?

I guess I should had post something for the St-Jean-Baptiste, June 24th. Québec National day. (That was last week) but as there’s only one other Québécois that I know of…

eehhhh Jokes? I’m better at dad jokes then good ones. I’ll try to think of something.

Had to Google that just for the name. I was expecting her to be some kind of porno-pioneer, but it turns out she was the first female telephone operator. Fly your Quebecois Flag high good sir. You should have celebrated by watching Pontypool and reveling in the idea of English being the vector that spreads the zombie plague.

What was the turtle doing on the highway? About 4 km/hour. :smirk:

The other day, I saw a stationery store, move.

Next thing I am going to look for is the National Porno-Pioneer Day! :rofl:

I’m not picky, so Dad ahead.

Dad jokes ARE the good ones! You just have to be a Dad to truly appreciate their awesomeness. Also yes, Happy Canada Day :canada: :maple_leaf: even if you prefer June 24th :fleur_de_lis: (Sorry - not my fault Discourse has that in the wrong colour!)

I’m not a dad and dad jokes are my stock-in-trade!

Another day, another celebration. First, thanks @Tracer for this:

Apart from that it’s “I Forgot”-Day which I instantly celebrated by forgetting my MP3-player at home… Commuting without music sucks!

If anyone has pictures of UFOs, aliens or other extraplanetary interesting stuff to post, go ahead!

Right, but who doesn’t like Roger?

Sooo, today the calendar offers:

  • Compliment your mirror Day
  • Disobedience Day
  • Chocolate Wafer Day
  • Stay out of the Sun Day

I am bad at the positive self-image thing and tend to disobey on a regular basis, so those won’t cut it. I guess I’ll just get chocolate wafers and keep them out of the sun…

Maybe complimenting would have helped:

Well, I don’t have any chocolate wafers, I’m not disobedient, I don’t admire myself in the mirror and I’m planning on staying out of the sun today.

I’ve always wondered what’s on the other side… :thinking:
