Because the concept of a holiday celebrating the proletariat deeply offends me, I will anti-celebrate Labor Day by working on Monday, if only for a few hours.
It’s a matter of principle, you understand. We don’t have a holiday celebrating the entrepreneurs that take risk, work insanely long hours and actually create new jobs in America, so it’s hard for me to recognize a holiday dedicated to labor.
My ridiculous grandstanding aside, I am looking forward to grilling fajitas and cracking open a Shiner Bock or two.
Enjoy the day off with your families. The market will be there waiting for you on Tuesday.
Happy Labor Day, comrades. Next year, we finally overthrow the capitalist pigs and establish our workers’ paradise.
