Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Do Not Hug These Drummers


We’re all thinking of Admiral Ackbar, right? It’s a trap, and his little rubber squid-fingers wibble around, and all that? Because I am positive that National Hug a Drummer Day is also National Get Assaulted by a Drummer Day.

TotD now presents Less Obvious Traps Than National Hug a Drummer Day:

  • The obligatory “van with Free Candy written on it” joke.
  • Giant box propped up with stick.
  • Land war in Asia.
  • Tiger cage with a sign reading “Tiger is friendly. Please enter and pet.” but the sign is clearly in a tiger’s handwriting.
  • Reverse mortgage.
  • The South of the Border rest stop on I-95 in South Carolina.


  1. Very insightful. For those who don’t know, South Carolina is the Mexico of the South, and you can fireworks there and you don’t have to get rabies shots for your dog and so on. I’m only familiar with I-85 (“stopped in Charlotte and bypassed Rock Hill” as the song goes) but the concept is the same.

    By the way, even if you live in South Carolina, get rabies shots for your dog.

  2. As long as Billy Bush doesn’t facilitate the hug, you might be ok.

      I honestly feel that might have been the creepiest part of it. “You got a hug for The Donald?” Ugh.
