I’m still laughing about this, so it had to go up. I just listened to Weird Al’s CD “Straight Outta Lynwood” the other day. There was a song called Weasel-Stomping Day on it. I think he was making fun of all the crazy holidays that are created, or maybe the way people forget what Christmas is for, I’m not sure. But the title cracked me up, so I decided to use it as an MSN name.
Today, I get an MSN message from that dude from Pakistan I was talking about. All it says is, “really?” He actually thought there was a Weasel-Stomping Day in Canada. After I stopped convulsing with laughter, I told him no, it’s a song lyric. If I’d been smart, and able to pull this off, I would have said yes. But then again, I would have scarred the poor man forever, and that wouldn’t have been good, even though it would have been hillarious!
