Leaving Treadmarkz Across the Universe

Why I Am Offended By Leap Year (A Satire)

Every four years the Earth has an extra day inserted into the calendar so that it has time to catch up and make it around the sun before December 31. I don’t know about you, but that sounds like some kind of special treatment.  Sounds like some of the special education programs I went through so I had more time to sit and think so I could get my math homework done.
You think Mars gets an extra day on its 687 day calendar every four years just so it can catch up? No. I bet it stays on its course, pays attention, and gets the task finished on time. It knows that its orbit is different from that of other planets, and yet it follows through.
This kind of lax attitude is exactly why the beings on other planets have the technology to visit, study and examine us and we’ve barely got a space program.
Nay! I say down with Leap Year. And while we’re at it I’m glad Pluto was stripped of its title as a planet. It was not qualified. Our solar system should never hire planets just to fill a quota to meet the laws on fair hiring practices.

  1. by the way, I am well aware that if the extra day were not put in , the Earth would in fact make its rounds BEFORE December 31, but I don’t care. That’s why its satire.

  2. So, you think Mother Earth does not deserve her one rest day per every four years? How about keeping it in so a few human beings with birthday on this leap day can continue to celebrate once every four years? ;-)hehehehe!
