Breaking News:
Brett Favre Signs with the Minnesota Vikings

History always repeats itself; the first time as tragedy, and the second as farce.

—Karl Marx

Considering that "farve" and "farce" are just a typo apart, I had to bring this one, which was first posted on 5/24/09, back to the top.

As for the results of the 5/15/09 Friday Challenge: after reading and discussing the entries, and reading your comments, and ruminating on it over dinner and through the movie, we've decided to go with Menace Day, as proposed by Snowdog.

Vidad pegs the Surreal-O-Meter, as usual—and yes, we agree with all the commentors who said you could sell a ton of these as t-shirts. Ben-El's Veto Day strikes us as a very good illustration of the truism that an armed society is a polite society, and Henry gets the coveted "Sucking Up Won't Get You Anywhere" award. We waffled for a while between Arisia's "Job's Birthday" and Torainfor's "PAI Day," both of which are quite clever and entertainingly presented, but in the end we had to pick Menace Day, simply because the vision of this card got lodged in our heads and would not leave:

Front cover: "We heard you were a Brett Favre fan."

Inside: "We are so truly, deeply, sorry."
