Friday's child is loving and giving
III – A Discordian is Required during his early Illumination to Go Off Alone & Partake Joyously of a Hot Dog on a Friday; this Devotive Ceremony to Remonstrate against the popular Paganisms of the Day: of Catholic Christendom (no meat on Friday), of Judaism (no meat of Pork), of Hindic Peoples (no meat of Beef), of Buddhists (no meat of animal), and of Discordians (no Hot Dog Buns).

For Children:  You will need to know the difference between Friday and a fried egg.  It's quite a simple difference, but an important one.  Friday comes at the end of the week, whereas a fried egg comes out of a chicken.

Friday is the day after Thursday which precedes Saturday.  In countries adopting Monday-first conventions as recommended by the international standard ISO 8601, it is the fifth day of the week.  It is the sixth day in countries that adopt a Sunday-first convention, as in the Abrahamic tradition.  In other countries (see workweek and weekend), Friday is the first day of the weekend, with Saturday the second.  In Afghanistan and Iran, Friday is the last day of the weekend, with Saturday as the first day of the working week.  Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.), and Kuwait also followed this convention until they changed to a Friday–Saturday weekend, on September first, 2006 in Bahrain and the U.A.E., and a year later in Kuwait.  In Iran, Friday is the only weekend day.  In Saudi Arabia and the Maldives, there are two weekends where Friday is the first weekend of the week while Saturday is the second weekend.

Quotes[edit]

  • For Children:  You will need to know the difference between Friday and a fried egg.  It's quite a simple difference, but an important one.  Friday comes at the end of the week, whereas a fried egg comes out of a chicken.  Like most things, of course, it isn't quite that simple.  The fried egg isn't properly a fried egg until it's been put in a frying pan and fried.  This is something you wouldn't do to a Friday, of course, though you might do it on a Friday.  You can also fry eggs on a Thursday, if you like, or on a cooker.  It's all rather complicated, but it makes a kind of sense if you think about it for a while.

Lyrics[edit]

  • Five o'clock Friday, all my work is done
    I can hardly wait
    Let's take the server, let's sling it around
    Let's make it taste so sweet
    • R.E.M., "A Month of Saturdays," Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage 1982–2011 (11 November 2011), disc 2, tr. 17.
