I'd go with Presidents Day or Presidents' Day (as in day of the Presidents)

The one that is can't be is President's Day because that would be the day of "a" President

I'm not an English major but I speak it like a native.

I'm glad  :icon_mrtony: read the Ferris email, but I thought this one had a better chance:

3 shots for a quarter?  Way to skew old, Satchmo.  A
quarter hasn't purchased 3 shots at a carnival since
"23 Skiddoo" was the hot phrase with the kiddies.

Since the day was created to combine Lincoln's Birthday and Washington's Birthday and to honor all presidents in the US, it should stand to reason that it's called Presidents' Day, sinc e we honor all presidents.

Although it's be nice if we had 43 days off during the year for each president.

The holiday is not for all presidents, ferchrissakes. Presidents' Day is a dumbed down name.  We don't need to honor or remember all of them.  As I said in another thread, change it back to Washington's Birthday or to Washington-Lincoln Day.

I'm still willing to swap Presidents' Day, as a federal holiday, for MLB Opening Day.  Even if you're not a baseball fan, wouldn't you rather have the day off in April than February?

Still, Columbus Day would be the first one I'd swap out for the Opening Day movement.

My coworker was blah-blah-blahing about her weekend again.  There's no good way for me to tell her to shut her piehole at this hour of the morning...
Are you saying her armpits are 66 inches off the ground?

Now this is a GREAT idea...

I've never understood Columbus Day

1) He wasn't the first guy to reach America

2) He didn't even reach America

At least you Brits are honest with your Bank Holidays.  "Fuck it, we don't need a reason, we're just taking a day off."

Please, the Bank of England uses the more tasteful "bugger it".

I can tell you that Tracy and Tom filled up the mailbox today.  Everytime I glanced, there was Tracy or Tom.

BTW, how come none of you picked up on Liz Clarke's line: "freight trained from the rear"

Brennan and I had to bite our tongues so we didn't die laughing.

I only sent one at 9:40, and I made it. That was some skilled wire work.

Who was screening today?

I was channeling my inner Neil.  Surprised my [boba] NRO one got a read.

Missed that segment. Eventually Brennan will have to mention the new computer mount that works from both the front and rear.

I mention littles all the time and they never get read.  This was a first.  Next I'll move one to billsadick emails.
