When is the Irresponsible Dog Ownership Day?

In an effort to ensure that no voting stone is left unturned, Governor Rendell has gone and all but secured the vote of the mushroom growers in the state:

Gov. Ed Rendell has designated September as Mushroom Month in the state.

“The mushroom industry contributes more than $391 million to the state’s economy, making Pennsylvania the leading mushroom-producing state, with more than 495 million pounds produced annually,” Mr. Rendell said.

How nice… a whole month, 30 days, dedicated to the organized growth of fungi.

Other such months and days that Rendell has proclaimed:

  • Dairy Month
  • Older Pennsylvanians Month
  • Weather Emergency Preparedness Week
  • Farmers Market Nutrition Week
  • Nurse Anesthetist Week
  • Beef and Egg Month (SOOO not making that one up)
  • Safe Drinking Water Week
  • Responsible Dog Ownership Day

I fully expect next month to be designated as Corn Shuckers Month.
