Judgment Day, Zombie Day, "I Need a Patch for That" Day, more.

May 21st, 2011 is - first and foremost - Judgment Day (if you believe Harold Camping). Apocalypse aside, today is also Zombie Day, "I Need a Patch for That" Day, National Memo Day, O. Henry Pun-Off Day, Preakness Stakes, Armed Forces Day, Navy Day (Chile), World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development, and National Waitstaff Day.  

Judgment Day is upon us! So says Harold Camping, of Family Radio Worldwide. At 6:00 p.m. (don't know what time zone), earthquakes and such will raise the dead. Believers will join God, while the zombies and people left behind will experience "a world of horror and chaos beyond description." The end of the world will occur on October 21st, 2011.

Inspired by predictions of Judgment Day, Kat N. Nerdvana declares today to be Zombie Day. Participate by posting zombie images on your social network profiles.

"I Need a Patch for That" Day is here. You may have a patch to help you quit smoking, to administer pain meds, or to provide birth control. But more immediately important today, try to find one that repels zombies.

In honor of National Memo Day, please take a memo: "May 21, 2011 - Judgment Day and zombies!"

O. Henry Pun-Off Day - The 34th Annual O. Henry Pun-Off World Championship takes place today, 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., in Austin, Texas, USA. Lucky they scheduled it to end at 6:00, just in time for the earthquakes. "Pun for your lives! The zombies are coming!"

The 136th Annual Preakness Stakes is scheduled to run in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. They even have an app. Do earthquakes and zombies make horses skittish?

Armed Forces Day was conceived by U.S. President Harry S Truman, to honor the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines under one department - the Department of Defense. Let's hope they're prepared to save us from the zombies.

Chileans celebrate Navy Day today, to honor the memory of those who fought in the Iquique Naval Combat of 1879. The tribute should continue, even though Judgment Day might be at hand.

The United Nations established the World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development in 2001. The day is "an opportunity to deepen our understanding of the values of cultural diversity and to learn to 'live together' better." Sorry, but cultural diversity does not include zombies.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 2 million Americans work as waiters and waitresses. (Remember when the politically correct crowd wanted them to be waitrons?) Celebrate National Waitstaff Day by leaving a big tip for a deserving waiter or waitress. You won't need money tomorrow, anyway, with Judgment Day and all.
