Quote of the Day:
“When you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time–a tremendous whack.” –Winston Churchill
It’s the third most wonderful time of the year! Third week is here, finally! Some of you were already explorers in the TBU this time last year for the inaugural celebration of the best new holiday to come about in centuries. If you haven’t heard about Third Week yet, I’m not surprised. The so-called “traditional media” won’t cover the story. Because Third Week is above commercialization and if they can’t make a buck off of it the networks and the newspapers and even the Google just don’t care. But there is a groundswell of support for Third Week and eventually the “Man” will be able to ignore it no more. For those of you blacked out on coverage of Third Week, here’s a link to last year’s original TBU story.
I task you friends to take up arms (metaphorically) in this war–a war started by the Traditional (and non-traditional too I guess) Media. Spread the word. Shout it from the rooftops! Hold clandestine meetings in your homes! Put three lights up in the bell tower! Blog! Facebook (ooh, somebody start a “group”)! Gossip! Start an email chain letter promising bad luck to those who don’t forward, or a million bucks to those who do (idea–Bill Gates supports Third Week–you take it from there). If you are liberal spread the word that Barack Obama secretly celebrates his Third Week heritage. Conservative? No problem, tell everyone he wants to come to their homes and take away their Third Week.
It’s the week before the week when everyone quits for the year. For too long we’ve waited for Thanksgiving to shut it all down. So take heart. They cannot hold back this tide forever, friends. When Third Week becomes the law of the land let it not be said that you were on the sidelines when the movement began.
I leave you to ponder what’s within your heart and your conscience and I am sure you will be guided accordingly.
