If you're reading this on Sunday, it's World Turtle Day. But if you're reading this on Monday, it's the day after World Turtle Day. And if you aren't reading this till Tuesday or later I think it's pretty obvious you don't love me anymore and that makes me a very sad boy. Anyway, turtles. Admit it -- you know you like them!
The purpose of World Turtle Day, May 23, sponsored yearly since 2000 by American Tortoise Rescue, is to bring attention to, and increase knowledge of and respect for, turtles and tortoises, and encourage human action to help them survive and thrive.
Turtle Day is celebrated worldwide in a variety of ways, from dressing up as turtles to saving turtles caught on highways, to research activities.
Somebody's getting high and watching TMNT this afternoon! Is it you? Because it isn't me. I'm playing Super Mario Galaxy 2, son!
Thanks to Darwin, who I'd naturally select first for my kickball team any day.
