America Thanks Gerald Ford for the Extra Day Off

Gerald Ford in his casket lies in state (Washington, DC) Across the United States today millions of Americans gethered to show thanks for the timely passing of former President Gerald R. Ford.

"I was scheduled to work overtime today, on account of already having Monday off for New Year's Day," said postal carrier Patrick Desjarlais. "Now, with Ford dying and all, I get a 4-day weekend. Sweet!"

Thousands filed into the Rotunda over the past three days to pay respects to the man summoned to the highest office when Watergate destroyed Richard Nixon's presidency in 1974, but many millions more will sit on their rears and enjoy an extra day off.

"This is like a dream come true - I can't remember the last time I had this many days off with pay before," said part-time logistics assistant Mark Lorrigan, of Alexandria. "What did you say that guy's name was again who gave us the day off? I'll have to buy him a beer."

A group of auditors from the Internal Revenue Service marked the occasion of the state funeral to head up to Pennsylvania for some skiing.

"There's not much snow, but the beer's cold, and it sure beats the hell out of working," admitted Jason Treuhaft, of Arlington. "I never voted for Ford, being a lifelong Democrat, but I'm a happy camper even if he did pardon that rat bastard Nixon. Nice touch, Mr. Ford."

You know, I usually don't expect to be informed when I hop over here...but this does explain the up-ward position of the red flag on my mail box.
BTW, do you realize that I live in Wisconsin? Never been to Toledo...though I hope to get the chance someday.
