HOLIDAY!


There just aren't enough holidays for SocMo, so he has created his own HOLIDAY. It is called SOCMOS.

The rules and regulations governing SOCMOS rival the U.S. tax code in sheer volume. However, it basically works like this. Pick any day AFTER Christmas but BEFORE New Years and declare it SOCMOS.

On that day, when you get up (sleeping in is highly encouraged) the first thing you do is eat a banana and yell, "Merry Socmos!" From that point on, you are to do ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING YOU WANT FOR THE REST OF THE DAY!

If you want to go to the mall and shop the after Christmas sales... so be it! If you want to lay on the couch, watch TV, and eat leftovers till you puke... so be it! If you want to vacuum the house.... STOP! That is NOT allowed! Nothing resembling work is tolerated on this day. However, if you want to vacuum nekkid, wearing only a big red nose and antlers, this IS permitted. This is one of the loopholes covered in the SOCMOS rules and regulations volume 17 section 42.

Merrrry SOCMOS!.... enjoy!

Thank you, thank you! With these last few high-stress days before christmas, I NEEDED a good laugh! MERRY SOCMOS to EVERYONE!! I am SO looking forward to it!!!

Just one question... Are government employees allowed to say "Happy Socmos"? We wouldn't want to violate any laws regarding the separation of humor and state.

In case I forget next week... Happy Socmos everyone!

Socmo looks really enthusiastic about the upcoming holiday. Sounds like a wonderful time. Need to clear a day next week to celebrate. Great fun. Enjoy!
