This is almost too precious. Lots of cornfields in the hood.

National Gang Week...

'...it's National Gaaaang Week,
Jump out from a cornfield and beat folk up until they squeak.'


How nice that they're organised enough to get an official Week! And that it coincides with National Capitalise a Random Noun Week, too.

I like the idea that there is a "National Gang Week".

Do they have a union or just a national organization that plans such things?

Are there speeches or awards given?

I don't recall seeing any parades in the past, but that would be fun. I can only imagine the floats and the beatings and the shootings. Wow. I don't think I would go, but might watch it on TV.

They're trying to get Richard Beymer as their keynote speaker.

I got this via text message in the middle of the bloody night! I acknowledged the text (to make my phone stop beeping), but I didn't read it till I woke up, but the first thing I did was go the the snopes page and reply (at 310 AM) with the link.

I didn't recognize the number, it didn't come up in my contacts list. So if someone accidentally sent it to me, I hope they got woke up in the same way they woke me up.
