Rule #200: National Aboriginal day

Happy Aboriginal day.

For those who are unfamiliar with this, National Aboriginal Day or Journée nationale des Autochtones (thanks to bilingualism) is a day recognizing and celebrating the cultures and contributions of the First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples of Canada. The day was first celebrated in 1996, after it was proclaimed that year by then Governor General of Canada Roméo LeBlanc, to be celebrated on June 21 annually.

So people are expected to "Celebrate the cultures of First Nations"! OK, let's get it on! What are you going to do? Participate in a rain dance? Bang a drum? Protest a railroad? I know what I'm going to do. In honor of National Aboriginal Day, I'm not going to pay any tax for the entire day! That's right. Of course, we have to be responsible with this. It's not a windfall. It's just a celebration of Aboriginal culture. So, on this tax free day I will just get the necessities. Some groceries, gas and smokes and maybe a little lighter fluid for the tire fire I may have to cap the night off with.

In the new world, no tax will be collected on National Aboriginal Day.
(just kidding... There won't be an aboriginal day)


  1. Can shoes be included in the tax free day????

    1. Sorry. Just the necessities ma'am. (what makes me think you're a woman?). Shoes?... no. Beer?...mmmmmmmmmmmmmmyes.


Agree? Disagree? Lay it on me!
