Pop Culture Frenzy, Round 66

Welcome once again to Pop Culture Frenzy.  Our question today is about Daylight Saving Time.

What is it?

We set our clocks ahead one hour.
It was to "gain" an hour in the evening so
 kids wouldn't have to walk home from
school in the dark. 

Since kids don't walk home from school
anymore, why do they still do it?

So people can play softball after work.

The effects of Global Warming
 cause the sun to shine less.  We must 
preserve it.

Poppycock. Daylight Savings Time
is like cutting a strip off the top of a 
blanket and sewing it onto the bottom. 
It's one of those -let's pretend we're
 doing something meaningful- contrivances. 
 Inconveniencing  millions of people makes
 the myth easier to believe.

Hostmaster:  whose idea was Daylight Saving Time?

 Ben Franklin was first to suggest it
 to save lamp oil.

Early to bed, early to rise makes
a man healthy, wealthy and wise!

So let the early birds pay for
the extra hour of lamp oil!

can afford it.

Spring Forward!  
Fuddy-duddies must pay 
their fair share!

Do roosters sleep in
 after the Spring Forward?

Hostmaster:  no.  Most crow at will anyway.  However, many roosters crow even earlier after Spring Forward.   Revenge.  People aren't the only ones inconvenienced by this twice a year messing with the clocks stuff.

Many Amish people eschew 
Daylight Saving Time.

Hawaiians too.

And Arizonians, except
for Indian reservations.

We can't save light.
It comes from God.
We should all eschew 
Daylight Savings Time.

 Sorry Molly. Unless the end of the world
comes first, most of us will lose an hour on March 11th.
This round is over. 

Round 66

  1. Saskatchewan also says to hell with DST.

    There's no point in holding onto it.

  2. Thank Goodness Arizona doesn't change time.
    I read that Germany used/started this in WW2 but have no idea if that is true and that President Roosevelt adopted it.

    DST must be stopped ! no matter what.
    cheers, parsnip

  3. P.S.
    Did I ever tell you Molly is Daughter's name and I adore the drawing of the gud dug !
    I do not talk too much about her and two Sons because they do not want the father to know where they are and what they are doing.

    cheers, parsnip

    1. That you adore my drawing is high praise! After all, you are a real artist, I am but a scribbler. LOL

      Such a lovely name. I associate Mollys with guilelessness, an innocent wisdom. How sad that you must be reticent online about Molly and her brothers. I will keep you all in my prayers.
