    I call the shredder. That thing is painfully expensive for something I’ll never use, so I can sell it without guilt.

    To answer Goat’s question in panel 1, it doesn’t.

    I had thought Flag Day was a federal holiday, but unfortunately it’s not. Rather surprising that Congress didn’t decide to make it one so they could have another day off.

    In Québec, we have Saint-Jean-Baptiste day on June 24th. Are we geniuses or what?

    Is that a whole hole punch? Or just a half a hole punch?

    But it’s National Donut Day! Is Rat saying that we don’t get the day off from work?

    Does this apply for August since no other holidays fall on that month either in the U.S.?

    Well, here in Italy we have Republic Day on the 2nd of June (it commemorates when we voted to get rid of a stupid king and get a bunch of corrupted politicians instead). Too bad this year it falls on a Saturday!

    Your boss may oblige you by giving you lots of days off!

    Is there a typo in the last panel? Goat’s face-palm doesn’t seem to match what he’s saying.

    Stephan’s Office Depot account must have a discrepancy…

    I once decided that we should have every President’s birthday off as a Federal holiday, not just one catch-all date, and not just one for Washington and another for Lincoln in the same month like we used to have when I was in school.

    Interestingly, there have only been two Presidents who share a birthday. And until Poppy Bush got in, there had never been a President with a birthday in June.

    I call the Keurig or whatever coffeemaker there is. There is great power in control of caffeine!

    You really need to move this to somewhere in the middle of June. I mean we just had a holiday, so having another right away feels empty.

    Besides, you still have 33 days until The 4th of July.

    So I don’t get a “holiday” but as a school custodian, the last day is next Wednesday and then I am off until the following Monday. I don’t have to work over the summer, but it is hard to turn down 40 hours a week! (only work 3.5 a day during the school year)

    Does this mean I can steal all the food from the canteen?
