I was planning to, but it turned out to be an ordinary day so I forgot.

It was No Trousers Day here at Snap's College of Cheese Making and Taxidermy.

Dissing the dead. How noble. Guess your first post under your current ID was false. When you knock on heaven's door it will be locked and bolted.

I just saw Spacehog at Hobby Lobby, dressed in multi-colored yarn and stuffing knickknacks and trinkets in his pants.

Oh, please. Davy didn't even sing his own songs. Much like Destiny's Child and the Archies, the Monkees were totally contrived. One less idiot on my People I Wanna Fight list. Good riddance.

Legend has it that Spacehog comes out to frolic every Leap Year

I wonder if there are some really awesome LeapHump drink specials? I so should have called in sick today so that I could just celebrate my ass off all day long.

Happy Leap and Hump! As much as I like Hank Hill, I say no thanks to propane and propane accessories

I agree with Autie. There should really be some kind of retail spin tied in with leap year.

I'm taking a leap of faith...unfortunately it may be more like a leap off of a cliff...

I'll probably just put it in my pocket, along with the Daylight Savings and the Sunshine. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rs7U1R...

"Anybody know how to carve a whole pig?"

Yah, autie, we gots a propane grill. hangs guilty head in shame When mama wants a burger, she don't cotton to watin' too long for it. Just push that button & whOOsh! I'm grillin' before you can say 'where's the Kingsford?' Now, I'm at least smart enough not to call it barbecue. All the briskets & ribs are done proper in the wood smoker. For Leap Day, g-rock & rara have inspired me to start digging a luau pit. Anybody know how to carve a whole pig?

Just because Leap Day falls on Hump Day this year?

It's a tough choice between Hydrogen Sulfide or a something ballistic. Probably just flip a coin.

Nice demographic of Lawrence. Two worker bees with one playing hooky. One that is going to a party and another who who is a KU-er

I would do anything for Leap Day, But I won't do that, no I won't do that.

Rockchalker, glad to hear that the devil;s flatulence is good for something.

Why would I do anything for leap year day or whatever the H they are calling it now?

What a stupid flipping notion.

It is a date they use to even out the calendar calculations for accuracy. Not a holiday.

Get back to work people.....

No hail just south of Larryville but the grill went stem-winding across the deck. Glad it was tethered somewhat by the propane line. My 16 y/o buddy has a birthday today. He was born 64 years ago. In another 20 years, he can start drinkin' all legal like.

Is there a Leap Year parade or anything? Do we get presents? What kind of candy does WalMart have for Leap Year? I guess Ill go to work and do what I do. Maybe periodically engaged in some mindless banter. Danged I went outside early at first light and the hail last night done beat some of the paint off the side of the house. Did you Northerners get some hail?

You first Pitt. If it goes away I'll know it's not me.

RoeDapple 2 years, 1 month ago

I'm thinkin' I might pounce. Then again I might hurdle, skip, spring, jump, vault or hop. Or nothing at all. It's all good.

A little known advantage is that when you're born on February 29th, you get TWO birfdays: the 28th and 29th. Take it from a leaper!

I'm going to work for an organization called Organizing for America. It was started in 2008 and has 50 state organizations too. Mostly we just help 'organize' things like funding for groups that help local prostitutes set up shop.
