April 15th Declared ‘National Sucks Day’

BANDON, Ore. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – April 15th already sucks but now it’s really official.

That’s because a veterinarian in Bandon, Oregon, has declared this Saturday (Apr. 15) as “National That Sucks Day.”

Bruce Novotny says he created “National That Sucks Day” to “reflect on the many things that suck in life, like aging, death, stress, the V.P. shooting a 78-year-old man in the face, etcetera.”

He figures April 15 is the perfect day to celebrate all that sucks in the world because it’s not only the day when taxes are due but it’s when the Titanic sank; Abe Lincoln died and when the first McDonalds opened its doors.

National That Sucks Day is just entering its second year but it already has its own holiday icon: A cranky curmudgeon named “Sir Isuck Newton.”

Novotny suggests people celebrate the sucky day by holding a rotten Easter egg hunt or playing “Pin the tail on the human.”

You can find out more information about ``National That Sucks Day'' at – where else? – www.thatsucks.net but Novotny doesn’t expect net nerds to be impressed.

As he puts it, “It sucks.”
