National Day of Conception

September 12, 2007 at 2:26 pm 11 comments

 The ever-so-crafty Russians have found a “solution” to their lack of population growth.  Today, September 12th, is the National Day of Conception.  People are urged to stay at home from work and spend the day getting busy (do people use that term anymore?).  Couples who give birth in nine months on the June 12th national holiday can win prizes (anything from household appliances to cars to houses). 

 If the US introduced this tradition, it may surpass Thanksgiving as Men’s favorite holiday. 

 Meanwhile, what if I lived in Russia?  Could I still get work off even if I wasn’t setting out to conceive?  And what activities would the government consider reasonable substitutes for the single gals out there?

    Haven’t the Russians translated SW yet? Don’t they know that zero population is the answer?

    Interesting, LeMare, how your favorite Mormon musical and your favorite shoe designer have the same initials. Cannot be coincidental.

    “Hey, Flindersky! Nyet, Flindersky!”

    I wonder if the Russian version would also shamelessly plagiarize Rodgers and Hart:

    zero population is the answer, my friend, without it, the rest of us are through…. Thanks heavens, Joey, that I found a VHS of the musical to bestow upon your wife.

    Is it wrong that I find your statement comparing Stuart Weitzman and Saturday’s Warrior to be blasphemous? Is it wrong that it is my FOOTWEAR that is offended by the sacrilege?

    “I’ve Seen that Smile Somewhere Before” was ripped off from some equally misguided musician???

    No, from two of the greatest songwriters of all time. (Rodgers would later compose the music for your beloved “Sound of Music,” LeMare.)

    Massimo, how could something as vile as Saturday’s Warrior have anything correlation to anything as timeless as Sound of Music???

    C’mon…we ALL (well, at least us 1980s pre-teen girls) had a crush on Jimmy.

    Seriously, though. Have the Russians done that math on that? Their Sept 12th babies are going to be coming on about June 7th. Not exactly rocket science.

    “you’ll never find it here, flinders, believe me i’m your friend.”

    “jimmy, we love you, that’s all we have to offer… please don’t turn us away…”

    Where do you find these things?? I think someone should inform Russia that it is 40 weeks, not 9 months of pregnancy, so therefore, the prize is going to ultimately go to someone who used a non-conception holiday to conceive!
