There are a lot of new visitors to this blog. People from the Netherlands, Spain, India, Malaysia and Iran. All these new people are here searching for the term boob and instead finding this stupid post. I'll bet they're disappointed. If you're actually having to search for the term "sneaky boob grab," you don't get the concept.
Seriously there's someone in Iran, Chahar Mahall va Bakhtiari who visits this site. Man, that person is going to get stoned (not in the good way but instead with real stones) if the government ever finds out he's wasting valuable international interweb power on this stupidity.
So because of all this international traffic, I thought I should explain the concept of Memorial Day to our visitors from abroad.
Memorial Day is on the last Monday in May and is a federal holiday (not one of those wimpy little state holidays). Thus, everyone gets a three day weekend and is allowed to raise hell on a Sunday night instead of watching the Sopranos. This holiday commemorates U.S. men and women who died in military service for their country. Memorial Day began as an honor to Union soldiers who died during the Civil War (the US's not one we started in another country). Memorial Day was later expanded to include those who died in any war or military action.
Memorial Day also typically signals the beginning of Summer.
In the United States we celebrate Memorial Day by drinking a lot of beer and having furniture and mattress sales.
Enjoy the long weekend kids. Feel free to share your favorite Memorial Day stories.
