What would be the third holiday to combine together with Constitution Day and Talk Like a Pirate Day?

Bobgirl has a list, and I'll leave it to your discretion to determine the correct answer.

(Tip: it aint Mole Day)

YOUUUUCH! YIPS from Steve-O: Pirate Day, indeed: last Friday the government collected $85.8 billion dollars in taxes (Sept. 15th being a day in which quarterly estimated taxes are due).

I'd have to dig into the records for this, but I wonder how many years it took in our country's history for the government to spend $85.8 billion 2006 inflation-adjusted dollars, let alone how many years after the passage of the Sixteenth Amendment it took the government's tax pirates to bring in that amount.

Sept 15 is also the last extension date that Corporate Taxes for 2005 were due. Oct. 15 is the last extension date for personal taxes due to late filing of Corp Taxes & K-1's etc.

Well, today is the feast day of St. Pomposa.

I'm guessing it ain't "Towel Day" either.
