Festivus isn't just for TBS anymore...

Inspired by my co-blogger's explaination of why the New York City transit strike ended so abruptly ("It's a Festivus miracle!"), I thought it appropriate to post this article about a Pennsylvania town that celebrates Frank Costanza's brain-child holiday.

And did you know that there is a company in Milwaukee that sells Festivus poles? If I had only known before December 23...

Ahhh Festivus...the finest holiday of the year. I took time out of my busy Christmas shopping to celebrate Festivus by telling my co-blogger that he stinks. Ha ha ha. Gotta air the grievances. I also remember there being another Festivus miracle on the 23rd, but I guess I drank too much celebrating to remember what that miracle was...

While I had a wonderful Christmas holiday, I for one, am sorry that I missed (actually forgot about) Festivus (thanks for the reminder! :- ). However, I can now look forward to National Pi Day (not to be confused with National Pi Approximation Day) as well as National Towel Day. Fun all year round!!

I'll admit it took me a minute to understand why Pi Day is on March 14. Math jokes. Sick.

And, Elle, you may have zinged me in the Airing of Greivances, but I could totally take you in the Feats of Strength. Totally...

Also, did you notice that Martin Rebas, the founder of Pi Approximation Day, has impersonated Elvis and believes that the world needs more evil robots? Hey, that's my kinda guy...
