New Holiday: Answer the Phone Like Todd Rundgren Day
You know, there aren’t enough holidays that mean anything. Labor Day did, once, but now it’s just a day off and an excuse for people to feign wit in their Facebook status messages (“they give us teh DAY OFF on LABOR Day thats bakwerds lol”). “International Talk Like a Pirate Day” is on Saturday, but that crap is SO five years ago.
Let’s create a new holiday; one that combines the pointless nature of Labor Day with the clownish effort and lack of shame in “Talk Like a Pirate Day.” I propose that, in lieu of celebrating Talk Like a Pirate Day, this Friday we celebrate ANSWER THE PHONE LIKE TODD RUNDGREN DAY.
It’s simple. When you answer you phone, just sing “HELLOOOO IT’S ME” to the tune of Todd’s one and only hit. It’s that simple. Why, you may ask?
…because it’s Answer the Phone Like Todd Rundgren Day, you f#$@ing brat. Now finish your meatloaf.
