Now here's a holiday....

"Russians get day off to procreate, then win prizes"

"Moscow - A Russian region of Ulyanovsk has found a novel way to fight the nation's birth-rate crisis: It has declared Sept. 12 the Day of Conception and for the third year running is giving couples time off from work to procreate.
The hope is for a brood of babies exactly nine months later on Russia's national day. Couples who "give birth to a patriot" during the June 12 festivities win money, cars, refrigerators and other prizes."

  1. Well, I guess if they are trying to get the population back up and people aren't getting it done on their own, a national Procreate day must be the solution. :) Hahahahahaha...


What do you think?
