DAILY BRIEFINGThe Moron's Daily Briefing
Mar. 3 - It's the third day of the third month of the third year of the century, denoted as 3/3/3, even in Europe.
Such a date has obvious significance. It is half of the Biblical 6/6/6 and one-third of the secular 9/9/9. The Moron's Almanac therefore urges its readers to avoid numerologists, conspiracy theorists, New Agers, and poisonous snakes.
(Poisonous snakes are unaffected by the calendar, but it's always wise to avoid them.)
Russian Serfdom was abolished on this date in 1861.
The Russian serf lived a hopeless life of back-breaking labor and desperate poverty. Their oppression, which continued even after their liberation, caused riots, assassinations, and literature. Finally they had the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917 to make the serfs equal to everyone else, and it worked.
From that point forward, everyone lived a hopeless life of back-breaking labor and desperate poverty.
The American surf has caused only the Beach Boys and Annette Funicello.
