Washington DC-- Congress accidentally voted in a new federal holiday with the bailout package deal last week. The holiday is called Gay Day in honour of gay and lesbian Americans. The new holiday will follow Thanksgiving Day every year and everyone will have a four day weekend.
The bailout package contained so much pork, no sane person could read it all. Congressman Barney Frank stuck the new law in a paragraph on page 1,443 and no one saw it. Representative Frank is openly gay and talked exclusively to TheSpoof.com about Gay Day.
"This will be a holiday for everyone, not just LGBT people. Everyone should dress in bright rainbow colours! People are encouraged to mingle with gays and get to know them better." lisped the Congressman.
Barney Frank was asked how the holiday should be celebrated.
"We don't want any of that football stuff, that's for Thanksgiving. Gay Day should be celebrated with fireworks, parades, pillow biting and carpet munching. People might like to stay home and watch a Judy Garland Festival on TV or listen to Clay Aiken. It would also be a great day for gays to 'come out' to their families, since everyone is there for Thanksgiving anyway." laughed the loony liberal.
President Bush didn't seem too surprised when he was told about the new holiday. "It's nice if you're queer, I guess. I don't think too many people will be working at the end of November, anyway." said the sinister president.
