St. Cujo's Day

This Sunday marks yet another two legger holiday.

St. Patrick's Day.

From what I understand, this holiday originated in a place called Ireland. It is celebrated by the massive intake of alcoholic beverages and the sudden discovery that every two legger on Earth has at least a drop of Irish ancestry.

Be that as it may, St. Patrick's Day is a holiday celebrating a two legger who is reputed to have driven all the snakes from Ireland.

This annoys me on several levels.

Firstly, it is obvious that while he may have driven the snake thingies from Ireland, they landed in Washington, DC.

Secondly, what's the big deal? How hard can it be to drive something that has no legs? It's not like they can run. He might as well as challenge them to an arm-wrestling competition.

Big fat hairy whoop.

Thirdly, do two leggers truly require a holiday to imbibe? I have often witnessed my male two legger drinking ale simply because the day ended in the letter "Y".

Personally, I have vanquished many pests. Dust bunnies, eight leggers, six leggers and even a few two leggers will never enter my kingdom again due to my prowess. Heck, given one day loose in my yard, I promise that I will eradicate every squirrel thingy on Whidbey Island.

But do I see St. Cujo's Day on any calendar?

No.

But I guarantee that if a St. Cujo's Day is ever declared and celebrated by the consumption of alcohol, 90% of two leggers will suddenly discover that they are descended from cats.
