National Boss Day — Who Needs It?

One of my most important duties is to keep you abreast of important holidays like National Vodka Day, National Punctuation Day, International Limerick Day, National Grammar Day, and the subject of today’s limerick: National Boss Day.

That’s right — our poor beleaguered bosses get their own holiday on October 16th:

National Boss Day — Who Needs It? (Limerick)

For a reason I don’t comprehend
Bosses get their own day — what a trend.
A national day
When our bosses hold sway?
How silly! Such nonsense must end.

(You can find more of my employment humor here.)

  1. For a reason I don’t comprehend
    Hallmark prints a card I should send
    to honor the jerk
    who rules where I work,
    but he can kiss my backward end.

    For reasons I don’t comprehend,
    On Bosses Day I should pretend?
    That the pain in the ass,
    Right-wing snake in the grass,
    Effin’ tyrant is now my best friend?

    Seems to me someone took offense
    At my use of poetic license
    I may be a hack
    But such a comeback
    Is shallow and makes little sense

    Scott, Rob likes to be a provocateur from time to time. I doubt that he really means what he said in his limerick. Then again, you never know. :)

    Rob, are you SURE you aren’t a Republican? You sure sound like one. :)

    I’m not going to argue politics here, since I do that on my other blog: Political Madness.

    So let me just say that in my opinion, what you said isn’t all that realistic for a large percentage of the public, trapped in a job they don’t like, and lacking real alternatives (especially in this economy). As for starting your own business, most people don’t have the idea, the financial flexibility, the time, and the entrepreneurial personality and talents to start their own business.

    For a reason I don’t comprehend.
    ‘Over!’ my Boss said to bend.
    He gets his own day.
    Soon begged me to stay.
    Middle finger is all I could send.
