A few years ago, one of my coworkers came across Steak and BJ Day. From the aforementioned site:
March 14th is now officially “Steak and Blowjob Day”. Simple, effective and self explanatory, this holiday has been created so you ladies finally have a day to show your man how much you care for him.
This really bugged me, and in response I created Cupcake and Shut The Hell Up Day:
Basically, ‘Steak and BJ Day’ assumes a number of things which are incorrect (I’m inferring some of these assumptions, some of them are flat-out listed on the ‘Steak and BJ Day’ website).
- Valentine’s Day is only for women, and there’s no way for men to enjoy Valentine’s Day or for two people in a relationship to share the day together
- Women don’t like sex (The ‘Steak and BJ Day’ page says the gift men get for women is inevitably loving, thought out, and wonderful, but implies Valentine’s Day isn’t about sweet lovin’ and that a little cunnilingus now and then isn’t a good thing)
- Every day isn’t already ‘Steak and BJ Day’
With that in mind, I’m declaring March 14 to be ‘Cupcake and Shut The Hell Up Day.’
Because the lady in your life deserves a cupcake.
And you ‘Steak and BJ Day’-ers need to shut the hell up.
I still think all that’s true, and the idea of Cupcake and Shut The Hell Up Day still really amuses me. (Even if it doesn’t roll off the tongue like Steak and BJ Day.)
But I just got an auto-reminder that the domain (cupcakeandshutthehellupday.com, obviously) expires next month. So now I’m trying to figure out if it’s worth the $10 to renew the domain. On the one hand, I still think it’s pretty funny. On the other hand, no one actually knows (or cares) about Cupcake and Shut The Hell Up Day.
Is it worth spending $10 a year on a joke only I find funny?
