In the past, this “movie in 100 words or less” thing I try to do has proven pretty difficult. I don’t always have opinions about a given thing, but when I do, my thoughts are rarely either neat or concise. In other words, if you asked me if I thought Daylight Savings Time was the bane of humankind’s existence on Earth or a productive manipulation of the daily clock based on our rotational orbit, I’d respond with a hearty, “Meh,” and then go back to trying to get caught up on DVR’d episodes of Vikings while using this years crop of Easter Peeps to diorama crime scenes from CSI: Miami.
Shut up, it’s not as bad as painting feet and faces on eggs and then using them in stop motion plays with Lego sets. You know who you are.
Given my propensity to ramble, though, if you instead ask me how I feel about sour cream, you might as well pull up a chair and pop some popcorn. Yeah, I won’t be finished with that subject until I’ve popped a capillary or two and I’m foaming at the mouth (short answer: sour cream is ewwww!—but that’s a different post)
I just thought that everyone – yes, dude, even you there hiding in the corner, acting like you’re not paying attention, you too – needed to know something about today. It’s apparently a very special day. What makes is special, you ask? Well, not only is it National Poetry Day (shut UP, poetry is too cool), it’s also National Taco Day.
Seriously? Poetry and tacos in the same day? That’s craziness! But, oh, my friends, oh! That’s. Not. All! It’s also National Vodka Day.
I’m just gonna let that sink in for a minute.
I know, right? Poetry. And Tacos. AND Vodka!
The only thing I can possibly think to add to that is: FTW!
In honor, then, of the serendipitously simultaneous confluence of National Poetry, Taco, and Vodka Days, clearly a limerick is required.
There once was a writer name Jay
who would gladly eat tacos all day
But tequila made him baaad
So vodka tonic’s what he had
And when he woke up he didn’t need to pray!
Now then, go forth and read or write some poetry and… what? Oh, fine. If you’re that worried about being called a sissy over it, go with something epic, like in the style of Beowulf or The Iliad. Nothing panzy about those. Where was I? Oh yeah, so make with the poetry while getting your taco and vodka on.
Sounds like a pretty cranked-up Thursday night, if you ask me.
On second thought, let’s pretend I didn’t just say that.

I’m busy today with weekend things, house stuff, and Little League baseball. Therefore, having little time to deliver the usual nonsense, I thought I’d just throw out a discussion topic and let you go at in the comments.
It’s with great pride, then, that I give you (the inaugural) Saturday Debate topic of the week:
Now, go forth and, well, discuss!
PS: Doritos.com is the most annoying website, like, EVER.
Update: I figured we should probably have a poll to go along with our Saturday Debate. So then, here, have a poll:
