As per usual, it has fallen on the enlightened vanguard of the SW boards, as it does every year, to create a topic to celebrate and edify on May Day, the great holiday of the glorious worker.

Sadly, the vanguard has been, uh, occupied. But as you can clearly see, there is at least a rudimentary poll this year!

Surely none of you doubted there would be. It was historically inevitable.

Sadly, I oppressed a worker today. It was not a completely joyless experience.

Holy crap, I just found out that my high school teachers lied to me about Viet Nam!

In Nature's family all are brothers.
Puff and blow and wheeze and hiss;
You can't frighten Shingebiss.
Bring your frost and ice and snow;
I'm still free to come and go.
You can never frighten me,
One who never fears is FREE!"

May Day is an international communist holiday? Goddamn, and I just thought it was a local excuse to get drunk. That said, I spent the day oiling my liver with a barley-based beverage. Long live the working class! Down with the Fat Cats! Viva la Revolución! (etc.)

Real communists drink vodka.

Except for Gorbachev, but nobody likes him.

True. But then again, I'm not a real communist. (Given my future line of work, it would be quite difficult to keep a leftist attitude going for a very long time.)

I'm sure his mum did...

And I spent the day sitting outside of my place of work, throwing scornful glances. I was supposed to be working from 6-9, and I sat there from 4-5, and then stood up and left... I then 'phoned in sick.

Oh, and hasta la victoria siempre. I think.

His mum what? Liked Gorbachev, or drank vodka during her pregnancy?

I spent the day, um, being leftist in classes?

Hey! The students have become paid-wage laborers too! Pity me. ;_;

His mum did both, I'm sure.

And (un)fortunately I didn't have classes, otherwise I would have pwned my economics teacher with marxist rantings.

When "you" say May Day, does that refer to Victoria Day? I've never heard of May Day, . . . ah from looking at Wiki I see what May Day is. Well we have Victoria Day which is better so there. :P

I spent May day being oppressed under the harsh scourge of final exams. And packing. and cleaning. and packing. and more packing.
Did I mention that I spent a lot of time today packing?

The Silent Assassin once, a long time ago, said somehing witty at a dinner party.
I forget exactly what he said, because at that instant, the Goths finally attacked Rome. But I remember that it was funny.

Perhaps you should equally redistribute Hugo Chavezes, then, if you have more than you need.

Does equally redistributing the yokes and toil under the lash of the opressor count?

—Alorael, who doesn't understand why May Day isn't tax day. It would be very appropriate.
