  I think this holiday is some corporate sham. The first I heard about it was atually on a Simpsons episode, of all things.

  That was the most unexpectedly hilarious thing ever said on these forums. Sorry, Camo, but looks like ol' Emsboy has trumped your mighty one liners with... well, a single line Slanted Mouth
  
  Wikipedia's explanation of the day.
  
  Allow me to explain for the uneducated and too-lazy-to-read: First off, it's a regional thing, largely in my home area of the Midwest, which explains why it snuck up on me (pleasently unnoticed) here in the Bible Belt.
  
  So, some time ago, a well meaning holiday was made up by candy companies to help the less fortunate. Good meaning. However, since then, it's just been tangled into another commercial butcher where women in relationships demand things from their men, and mean, being whipped as we are, must supply candy to them (if lucky, or they might want the shinies).

  I don't remember Simpsons ever talking about Sweetest Day. I remember the invented Love Day, which is pretty much the same thing Laughing
  
  I've known about Sweetest Day for a while now, but I just thought a topic would be necessary to bash it. I didn't know it was so very regional, however. Almost no forum-goers are from this part o' the country.
  How utterly unnecessary has this topic become?

  On April 26, 1998, The Simpsons said:
  

  Manager: Okay, people. We need to cook up a new holiday for the summer. Something with, eh, gifts, cards, assorted gougeables.
  
  Woman: How about something religious? We had great penetration last spring with "Christmas II"!
  
  Man: Ooh, I know, Spendover, like Passover but less talk, more presents!
  
  Manager: No, its gotta be something warm and fuzzy, something like um.. Love Day, but not so lame.......
  Marge: Happy Love Day everyone!
  

  Ohhh, Love Day. Why didn't you say so? Good stuff, leave it to Cleveland, but it's obviously very regional, over here in the southernmost of the Dakotas, we've heard nothing of it. 'Course, my hometown is home to the regionalest of all holidays- Schmeckfest, which is German for don't-give-a-damm.
  So, uh, happy Sweetest Day, everyone. * fabricates a SirLoveALot the bear who loves to love for the next person who wants it *

  Er... ew?
  
  I prolly should have clarified, which I didn't expect as needed, but Sweetest Day is for your "sweetie", meaning you don't wish it on someone unless you're suckin' up to them for obvious reasons pertaining to your relationship with them... as your girlfriend.
  
  Yeah, that's right: I'm talkin' about them shuttin' 'er yap while you watch TV. Bliss!

  That makes two holidays I've never heard of. They kinda already invented this holiday awhile ago. It's called Valentine's Day!

  Yeah, uh, that was mostly just a Simpsons reference, but if anyone here actually does have a GF, they could have it to give it to her. Course she'd have to come to RE first. *Quickly calculates odds of said occurances occuring* *watches calculator explode*

  I tried that whole "get the GF on RE" gig...needless to say the two weeks we were together were not enough to make it so.
  I was going to surprise someone with that...but I just now remembered about it...oh well, at least I'm not stuck with the sir lovealot bear.

  Just for anyone who goes to the site who actually manages to junction a GF (cough coughI'm a nerdcough), I would strongly recommend keeping her away from RE for as long as possible... unless you are trying to get rid of her. I'd think this site would be a gear way to lose a psycho-stalker-type... and send 'em this way Lick
  
  I mean, the ladies are most definantly not likin' me, creator of the site, so I hardly think that broadcasting patronage to RE would be a way to win 'em over.

  " At least it's not Wintereenmas."
  
  WHAT! He dares bash Wintereenmas?
  
  End sarcasm.
  
  lol. It's an interesting concept, but I doubt it would work unless the world was entirely populated by Ethan clones...which would cause many MANY other problems in the world...That's actually the most frightening thought I've ever had, and I've had some very frightening thoughts...
  
  If you don't know what we're talking about...It's a web-comic called Ctrl-Alt-Del (Found at www.ctrlaltdel-online.com) It's funny, and you don't have to be an extreme nerd who is a guru on every programming language and Gentoo (As far as I know, the least user-friendly distro of Linux, if you know of a less user-friendly one, use that name instead) to understand it.

  Is there anyone who can explain the above outburst?
  
  Is there anyone who can explain any of Camo's outbursts similar in nature to that one?
  
  I can't...all I can say is: It's funny and weird at the same time.
  
  EDIT: Now I see the quotes, so it's from something. I don't know what though.

  Well, It'd make a little sense it it were from Ctrl+Alt+Del, but then I noticed that YOU posted the link...I figured you'd know....coulda sworn it was from there though...Meh, maybe it's some other webcomic, I get 'em confused sometimes.

  And you've been here for how long?
  
  Camo had it in quotes since it was a... shock, Camoism. You know, his one-line, spontaneous, generally offensive, always hilarious on-liners?
  
  It was his comical way of saying that chicks don't need the candy that serves as Sweetest Day's (the topic, 'member?) staple since it just makes 'em fatter. And, unless yer a chubby-chaser, that ain't a good aim.
