INTERNATIONAL Fuck Off and Leave Me Alone Day has proved more successful than International Happiness Day or World Poetry Day, it has emerged.
Martin Bishop, one of the people who organises this kind of thing, said: “We’re thinking next month we’ll have Everyone Stop Being a Pain in the Arse Day.
“Then if that’s a success we’ll also then have World No Poetry Day where no poetry or spoken word will be allowed and if you get caught doing any you get three months in prison.
“Although if any of the other cons ask you what you’re in for, maybe lie to them as ‘writing poetry’ is only one step up from ‘I got caught shoplifting from a charity shop which was run by an old blind woman.’”
Twitter user Emma Bradford said: “I loved International Fuck off and Leave Me Alone Day, although if you tweet me about it you really are missing the point.”
