I’ve decided to forgo my usual
bitching and whining musings on the myriad of reasons I hate Mondays. Why? First because I’m a slacker who’d rather sit on my arse and complain than actually do anything productive. B: because why bother when Wikipedia has an entire page devoted to Monday. This cultural resource also features pages on the whiles of the wedgie, so it’s kind of like a Nuggets style field trip to the hallowed halls of the grand library at Oxford, nes pa? 3. In conclusion, meh…
For your perusal I submit the following cultural reference information
ripped off from provided courtesy of Wikipedia:
