Four Twenty


This should have been posted yesterday. Sorry.
For all those that were out there celebrating yesterday by getting high...I hope you also smoked a bowl in honor of (or with) your penisless friends.

Yesterday was Equal Pay Day.

The next Equal Pay Day is Tuesday, April 20, 2010. This date symbolizes how far into 2010 women must work to earn what men earned in 2009.

Equal Pay Day was originated by the National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPE) in 1996 as a public awareness event to illustrate the gap between men's and women's wages.

Since Census statistics showing the latest wage figures will not be available until late August or September, NCPE leadership decided years ago to select a Tuesday in April as Equal Pay Day. (Tuesday was selected to represent how far into the work week women must work to earn what men earned the previous week.) The date also is selected to avoid avoid religious holidays and other significant events.

Because women earn less, on average, than men, they must work longer for the same amount of pay. The wage gap is even greater for most women of color.

Wait.. so happy weed smokers don't have, uh.... parts? I'll keep that in mind when speaking with a certain stoner I know that SWEARS it's good for you, because God created it blah blah blah.

? No. I wasn't saying people that smoke weed don't have penises. I was saying that not only was yesterday the day to get high, it was also equal pay day. I was saying ladies don't have penises.

Oh, I was confused, but that's a normal, everyday occurrence for me. Sorry. ;)

Your "label" made the post!

I still don't get why women earn less, mystifying!

When I was typing up my label for this one it came up. I apparently have another post out there labeled "vaginas" so, yay me!

It is mystifying...just like vaginas!
