'My boyfriend is named SINGLE and I love him SO much.'
Pick any date off the calendar at random and there’s likely some kind of inane made-up day the world says you should be celebrating.
There’s July 26th, International Bagel Day Day. Or how about March 9th, when the US celebrates National Crabmeat Day?
One of the most ridiculous out there has to be today, October 3, which is apparently National Boyfriend Day. Er, what? Don’t we have to suffer enough on Valentine’s?
A quick flick through Twitter shows that the hashtag has been trending globally all day. Yes, there are a few *sincere* tweets celebrating boyfriends:
