My Bucket's Got a Hole Day

May 30 is My Bucket’s Got A Hole in It Day, a day to carry around a bucket with a hole with you.

Baby with a bucket on the beach.

It is unclear if the unofficial holiday was created in honor of the song by the same name made popular by American singer Hank Williams or to celebrate buckets with holes in them. Either way, see below on how to celebrate this offbeat hole-i-day.

How to Celebrate?

  • Listen to the song by the same name.
  • Trick someone by making a hole in their bucket. Ask them to do something silly with the bucket, like fill another bucket or water the lawn.
  • Ask people you meet the answer to the Hole in the Bucket puzzle: I am weightless, but you can see me. Put me in a bucket, and I’ll make it lighter. What am I? A hole.

Did You Know…

…that the children's song There is a Hole in the Bucket describes a deadlock situation? To fix a bucket with a hole, the protagonist needs to cut a piece of straw with a knife, which needs to be sharpened on a sharpening stone which needs to be watered with water using the bucket, which has a hole.

As the stranger enters a country store, he spots a sign: "Danger! Beware of Dog!" Inside, he sees a harmless old hound asleep in the middle of the floor.

"Is that the dog we're supposed to beware of?" he asks the owner.

"That's him," comes the reply.

"He doesn't look dangerous to me. Why would you post that sign?"

"Before I posted that sign, people kept tripping over him."

Clientsfromhell.com was established by freelance art directors and graphic designers who have seen the dark side of their clients … and survived.

Client No. 1: So it turns out you were right about me wanting a colon instead of a semicolon. But since we're on the subject, I'd like you to revisit the copy and include more semicolons. I want people to think we're smart.

Client No. 2: Since you have overbid on our project, can you recommend anyone who has your exact same design skills and client-relationship abilities for half the cost?

Client No. 3: Please be sure to print the cover and the table of contents at the front of the book, then print the chapters in this order: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16.

A touching tribute to a waitress, spotted outside a local restaurant:

"RIP Sandy. We will miss you. Server needed."
