D. A. DAY (Day After Day): "Make the day after the Big Game a Holiday." It's a White Castle stunt, but they've already got on the local news (that's not saying much) tonight. That being said, it still does seem rather relevant. How many of youze will be calling in sick on Monday?

Aren't National holidays paid days off? If so, let's make Day After Superday a holiday

I totally support this worthy cause.

Great idea, however at my place of employment, we only get 11 "Holiday" days per year, so it would be just another day I'd have to work, while my kids are off and the banks and government institutions stay home!

Anyone ever notice how Chicken doesn't come in "rings". Or why in any other restaraunt, you would order hamburgers, but at white castle, they are sliders.... just something to think about when you are in line on Monday.

I worked for a company that offered a handful of "floating holidays." These could be used for any federal holiday on which the company was not closed (i.e. MLK, Presidents Day, Columbus Day, etc.)... OR, the Monday after the Super Bowl.

White Castle can't really call their sliders burgers because those things are just too small. I can't eat there or Crystals, I become enraged at their miniscule size. I'm a real man baby and I need a real man's burger; nothing smaller than a quarter pounder.... I hope that didn't sound too gay.

It's a White Castle stunt, but they've already got on the local news (that's not saying much) tonight. That's because they paid the local news to do a segment on it. If you watch enough news, you can tell real news from "paid" news. If the anchor talks about a "brand new store opening" in your area, that's paid news. If they talk about a "crazy stunt" that some local business did, that's paid news. If they talk about the long line up at a theatre for a movie coming out, that's (usually) paid news. If they talk about the launch of a neat-o product by a big company (Apple, Ford, Microsoft), that's paid news.

First state that recognizes Day After Super Bowl Day before Martin Luther King Jr. Day gets a free soda at the movies and a T-Shirt that says "My State is Wicked Fucked".... I'm looking at you, Colorado.

Damnit, NH could have been that state. Stupid homo progressives moving up from Taxachusetts.

grum, no way! You're lyin'! The news is objective, fair and balanced. Nobody can buy the news! No way! That's why they had those laws restricting media ownership concentration ...

If I don't show up on Monday, I'll have alot of pissed-off customers. Damn mild winter, this is supposed to be the slow time of the year.

I'll have 5 cheese rats and 2 aqua rats. Buy 'em by the sack. Just make sure the bathroom fan is working.
