Yeah...no, I don't think so. Sounds like too annoying a day to celebrate.

Come back when we're talking like pirates.

INTERNATIONAL TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY IS NOT UNTIL SEPTEMBER 19TH, AS A PASTAFARIAN IT IS CONSIDERED ONE OF OUR MOST SACRED HOLIDAYS SO I SHALL BE RIGHT THERE WITH YOU WHEN THE TIME COMES TO SAY OUR ARRRGS.

BUT FOR TODAY, LET US SHOUT JOYFULLY AND GIVE A MINUTE'S SCREAMING IN HONOR OF THE LIFE AND DEATH OF BILLY MAYS!

Who keeps making up all these rediculous holidays? I mean... I can't even blame those assholes at Hallmark for this one... just some nebulous internet entity. Do we really need a new rediculous holiday for every day of the year?

International Talk Like a Pirate Day is not until September 19th
I know. I was hoping for three months of relative peace until then.

But for today, let us shout joyfully and give a minute's screaming in honor of the life and death of Billy Mays!
Never knew who he was until someone on the Escapist mentioned him. He sounds like someone in life I would have ignored with the power of a thousand deaf, hyperactive children.

NO MAN, IN ALL HONESTY AND EARNESTNESS TODAY IS INTERNATIONAL ALL CAPS DAY. MUCH LIKE TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY, IT IS AN INTERNET HOLIDAY AND THIS THREAD WAS STARTED NOT TO TROLL BUT TO SPREAD AWARENESS AND TO ALLOW EVERYONE TO HAVE A LITTLE FUN WITH A SILLY INTERNET HOLIDAY.

NO HARM, NO MALICE, NO ILL WILL. JUST A LOT OF CAPS AND SOME GOOD TIMES IN MEMORY OF SOMEONE WHO KEPT MANY OF US COMPANY DURING OUR LATE NIGHT GAMING BINGES.

TOO DIFFICULT TO READ, HURTS MY BRAIN WHICH AUTOMATICALLY READS CAPS IN LOUD VOICES OF CARICATURED DEAF/DUMB PEOPLE.

EVEN THOUGH I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING AGAINST USING CAPS TO EMPHASIZE WORDS AND PHRASES, WRITING ALL IN CAPS IS FUCKIN' ANNOYING, AND THIS 'DAY' SHOULD GO DIE IN A FIRE.

YES, I'M AWARE OF THE HYPOCRISY.

AND YES, I will stop now.
