Valentine's Day, Memorial Day, and the Fourth of July.

What do these holidays have in common? They are the sex holidays!

Ha!

Memorial Day = kickoff of summer season
Fourth of July = fireworks

Why not Labor Day? Sadness over the end of summer? Or is that "Labor" reference just too unromantic?

I am shocked and dismayed that Sweetest Day didn't make the cut. [/sarcasm]

Does anyone other than Hallmark and Chocolate companies - the origins of the 'holiday' - acutally care about this one?

I'm just sad to find out no one porks on Martin Luther King Jr Day.

As a former marketing manager, I'd be interested to know if this also holds true for federal/bank holidays in areas with lots of government employees. Did Wal-Mart sell more massage oil last weekend in Jefferson City, Madison and Richmond?

Oh God, Pastor_JazzyJef, please.

It's bad enough thinking of my parents being intimate 9 months before I was born (around New Year's actually), but now civil servants!

That's just gross. Of course, Ann here IS a civil servant, isn't she...hmm.

P.S.: In all seriousness, when I read the article (first time since Nov 3 2004 I had been back to Drudge) a bell dinged inside me. It made me recall all those weirdo KY Jelly and "Personal Lubricant" TV adverts we have gotten of late. And those spots are so creepy too!

"Honey, don't forget the KY Jelly", says the leering TV hubby.

Yuck, this is as welcome as all those Kao-pectate line-dancing commercials (diarrhoea!).

Cheers,
Victoria

I'm looking forward to a lengthy discussion of this subject on your next podcast.

It's good of old Jim Peterson to remember what we have a Memorial Day for and a July 4th, for that matter. Sex!! Of course! Forget that other stuff, especially the 80 year old veterans who probably don't fit Jimmy's demographic. Who needs them. This is what they fought for! Sex oils!
If they'll pay enough, our country can rename one of those Holidays and make a dent in the national debt.

Victoria: especially since Martin Luther King did enough porking for everyone. As with JFK, it would be a fitting celebration . . .

I really do think K-Mart should've gotten the exclusive on K-Y Jelly though . . .

Natch! I love it, I love it.

JFK was born on 29 May, so that's too close to one of those American holidays...Veteran's Day? I forget.

And 22 November is too close to Thanksgiving, usually.

OTOH, the President could sign into law that John Madden has to dress up as Marilyn Monroe during Thanksgiving NFL broadcasts, to honour JFK's memory.

That'd be cool.

Ahh.

Another K-Mart customer who got hosed, I see.
