THREE CHEERS FOR NOTHING

Saturday 16th is National Nothing Day, and we are celebrating the occasion with a new issue.

Highlights in the issue include: 
  • A brand-new Lucy story, in which our lovelorn lass goes on a date with a boffin who believes that the universe is 99.99999% nothing, therefore the bit that isn't nothing should also be considered statistically nothing.
  • Poems about dashing about, far-out Bob Ross, Irish coffee and hot pastrami, remains, potato mulch, and silence 
  • A neuropsychological exploration by Mr Hobbs of Milton Keynes
  • And introducing Stinkpot and Dave Lucas, who drive about in a van looking for ways to make money 
  • Dreams, drawings, schemes and more

The launch will be accompanied by a new song by the Original Beekeepers, "Purposeful Attempts to Do Nothing"

What is National Nothing Day? 

  • It’s an "un-event" whose aim is to “provide people with one national day when they can just sit, without celebrating, observing or honouring anything”

  • It was first proposed in 1972 by teacher Jothy Narayanasamy

  • It was then inaugurated in 1973 by a newspaper humorist and columnist called Harold Shipman Coffin

  • It is sponsored by The National Nothing Foundation 

  • The total number of members of the Foundation is unknown.

  • An expression of interest in the Foundation's purposes qualifies one for membership

  • It publishes nothing and holds no meetings or conventions.

  • Harold Coffin was selected as chairman of NNF “Because nothing is something he does better than anybody else."

National Fritters Day round up

In December the House of Three Cheers published Three Cheers for Fritters , in celebration of National Fritters Day on December 2nd.  The publication was marked by several events including a pop-up shop at Alexandra Palace in North London and an impromptu flyby in Muswell Hill village centre , where booklets were distributed by a mysterious member of the House wearing a custom apron emblazoned with a fritter.  It was a huge success and many more surprise events will be held to announce upcoming booklets. Here's the front cover of the booklet and the poster for the launch events: The booklet contained silly things on the theme of fritters.  Here's a selection: In addition to the booklet, an  EP of fritter music   was created and released by   The Original Beekepers .  All in all, a frittertastic time was had by all!
