Friday FAIL

Last year, November 12 was proclaimed National Smack a Bum Day in Dublin, Ireland.

It was meant as a joke, but some people took it seriously, and the Twitterverse was in an uproar. Read all about it here.

I wonder if it will be celebrated again this year. I'll go to Walmart, bend over and pretend to pick something up off the floor, and see if anyone smacks my bum. Come to think of it, I might have better luck if I try it at the local Irish pub.

Get your bum smacked at Walmart???


Go to the pub! ;)

PK said...

I think it would probably do even better if you tried it at home.

Hermione, try both places, Walmart, and your local Pub, you might have a 'spanking good time', at both places. Good Luck.

The pub sounds like a better bet to me...or at home in every room throughout the day!
hugs abby

Walmart, too funny. I'd leave a copy where Ron can see it.

Probably best confined to home, however, I did suggest at work one time for us to emulate the athletes and after someone did something really terrific, we smack them on their rear and say "good job!" Didn't go over all that well, especially since it was a government office! LOL
Hugs, George

Pish posh Hermione - EVERY day is smack a bum day.

I've always wanted to travel. I think I've discovered my first destination.

Oh that is funny. I can see that being a big problem though with all the sexual harassment type stuff.
Too funny. :)

Blondie said...

That is really funny. It just goes to show how many of us read only the big print and not the small print with the pertinent details.

That's a good idea try it !!!

Don't know what to say?

You could also oh-so-casually carry a copy of the photo with you, just in case someone doesn't take the hint. :)

Roz said...

So funny. Hmm, think I'd try the pub over walmart or make sure Ron sees the article.

Smack a bum day? That would be a great promo for Hooters. A coupon for a smack on the bottom for every meal purchased.


Hermione said...

Kittie - The pub probably has a better class of clientele.

PK - That would be a 100% success.

Six - I just might do that.

Abby - In every room? Mmm, yummy!

Ronnie - I will do that tomorrow.

George - Sorry your idea didn't pan out.

Foothills - Sometimes I think it is.

Mellie - Welcome!

Jan - I agree, it would be a sure thing.

Sara - It probably wouldn't work too well in a real life situation.

Blondie - Quite true.

Daisy - I just might.

Leigh - It boggles the mind:)

Ana - Ans post it on the common bulletin boards.

Roz - The pub it is, then!

Joey - They'd sell a ton of food that way :D

I'm not at all sure this counts as a FAIL. I think it's a terrific idea and should be embraced wholeheartedly. I can see a national Smack Booty Day to promote recreational spanking. Time it coincide with the release of the 50 Shades movie. We could get endorsements from prominent politicians, psychologists, doctors (how about Dr.Phil?). Get everyone on the bandwagon. I'm excited about this idea...

I'm torn between taking this seriously and considering it a total fail and LOLing at it thinking it's an epic win!
