You Know What? Fuck Ben Franklin!

So Ben Franklin's all: "blah blah blah, penny saved is a penny earned. all cats are grey in the dark, work will make you free, right? so check it, if we turn the clock back in spring, we get an extra hour of daylight for the farmers to work with. which is all kinds of cool because then they can work that much more during the summer, and then, in the fall, when it gets dark earlier, we can go back to normal, and aren't I smart, blahdefuckingblah."

Shut the fuck up, Ben Franklin. You're dead. Deader than the Pope and Terri Schiavo combined (there, something topical...two days ago. Happy?).

What may have been a pretty smart idea nearly two-hundred years ago, is only proving goddamn annoying these days. Why do we keep up with this shit? It's largely unnecessary, especially because the modern age? No. Longer. Agrarian. For fuck's sake.

And don't talk to me about kids catching busses in the dark. Are you gonna tell me that those kids who are in areas sketchy enough to be worried about are going to be in any less danger when it's light out? Where are their parents anyway? Huh? Exactly.

Fuck Daylight Savings. Right in the ear.

I agree. Fuck daylight savings! Except I do enjoy the longer days, the summer days, the sun, the fancy free days. Nevermind. Daylight savings rocks!

HEY!

Repeat after me: Daylight Savings Fucking SUCK!

The longer, summer days aren't going anywhere. The fucking sun ain't going nowhere. I don't know about you, but I have fancy free days ALL THE GODDAMN TIME.

Daylight Savings is worthless.

"but--" no.
"but--" NO. It's no use.

Good day, Daylight Savings. I said, GOOD DAY!
