It's ************ Day!

If you have a cause to promote, there will be a Day for it. You know, National Mollusc Day, that kind of thing.

Today, within a few minutes of each other, I have seen tweets telling me that today is Mosquito Day, and also Charles Darwin Day. Neither gives me any more information.

What do these Days achieve?

Attention and a warped sense of validation. That is all, I believe.

Angels - "You screwed up a perfectly good monkey is what you did. Look at it. It's got anxiety!"

It's St Stephen's Day, according to the spam I received this morning.

Apparently it was National Orgasm Day recently. The jokes on my Twitter timeline were mostly predictable.

There's loads of such days here...Children's Day (every day is a children's day IMO), International Women's day- Just an attempt to make money I think.
