Some people get excited about the stupidest things:
Oh January! I love, love, love this month of the year. For starters, my birthday is in January. The State of the Union is also in January, and for a geek like me, that's political candy. And then, of course, there's NARAL Pro-Choice America's Blog for Choice Day!
Well, guess what, pro-choice America? IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN! w00t w00t!
If BFC Day goes off like it has in previous years, you're basically going to get 600 numbnut bloggers reposting what they wrote last year (or the year before). w00t! Because let's be frank, there are only so many ways to posit that there are no broad moral implications to ripping apart a fetus in the uterus while at the same time claiming it is your heartfelt belief that abortions should be "rare". Almost sounds like a BFMD post. "In Which I Explain the Concept of 'Cognitive Dissonance' Without Using Vowels".
So I suppose in an effort to keep the output from getting stale, the BFCers have a new theme this year:
This year, we're asking people to blog their answer to this question: What is your top pro-choice hope for President-elect Obama (he'll be President Obama by the time Blog for Choice Day rolls around!) and/or the new Congress.
Given that Blog for Mirth Day is loosely modeled after the seriously worthless Blogs for Choice Day, I'd be remiss if I didn't throw a topic out there for all you Mirthers to expound on. So we're asking those of you still looking for a BFMD topic to blog their answer to this question:
Seriously, dude, what the hell?
Or, you could make that the answer to your own question. I really don't care.
Just do something.
Whatever feels mirthful.
