Workers of the world unite! I heard a story the other day of workers in a factory in France holding managers hostage who had come to tell them they were laid off. I think someone missed the point somewhere. I don't know how it was finally resolved.
Speaking of France, I believe "mayday!", the distress call, is derived from the french, "m'aider!", meaning "help me!"
I think May Day, the workers day, is actually May 1, so I should have posted this fractal then.
