Today is National Shrimp Day -- have a little fun

OK, sorry, sizeist jokes are out of order on The Blog of Days.

No, actually, in this context, "shrimp" refers to the small, edible crustacean.

And shrimp cocktails, if you can find a place that serves 'em, go very well with other kinds of cocktails.

National Shrimp Day (the image with this piece was taken from the linked site) should not be confused with National Shrimp Scampi Day. (That was April 29. Did you miss it?)

May 10 is also National Clean Up Your Room Day (see also, here and here lest you think I'm making this stuff up). Though no doubt necessary in many cases, National Clean Up Your Room Day does not sound like much of an excuse for an after-work outing.

So enjoy National Shrimp Day, and don't leave a shrimpy tip, you old crab.
