Hey, guess what today is!


Yes, but what else?

May the third.

Okay, but what is special about today?

I had two eggs for breakfast instead of one.

No, I’ll give you a  clue.  He-he!


No,  not he-he as in him-him,  he-he as in ha-ha!

Now you sound like a donkey.

That’s he-haw-he-haw.  Here’s another clue.

Now you look like a donkey.

Look again.

You just cleaned your teeth?

No, my expression, what is it?

It’s enough to scare a donkey.

Now you are making me cross.

Calm down.

How can I? Grrrrrrrr!

Got it, National Get Frazzled Day. 


I know what tomorrow is.


The day after World Laughter Day! 

But-but-but …….

People are making end of the world jokes like there’s no tomorrow! 


Go on, smile or have you forgotten what today is?
