I usually start spewing this kind of nonsense when I lose track of what I'm saying in a speech. Who needs scripts? Davidy22[talk] 13:35, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Since I am not well read regarding James Garfield's speeches perhaps this is an effort to point out that James Garfield's speeches were less compelling than the desire to avoid Monday's and how lasagna makes everything better.? 20:10, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

How can you make the statement "abolish the work week entirely, the economy would collapse within twenty four hours." This is unsupported by any kind of evidence. Many countries don't have a 40 hour work week, and it is becoming rarer in the US as well. Even if everyone stopped working tomorrow, it wouldn't collapse the system because it would be like a holiday. Are you assuming the abolition of the work week would mean no one works, or that it would be replaced by an inferior system that collapses the economy? Neither seems rather realistic. 21:15, 11 October 2013 (UTC) Robert

Hi There, I just went random on xkcd and noted that one first time... But I know the concept from a book: Sam Small flies again by ... One of the stories is about Sam Small deciding that it is now Saturday... on and on and on... Funny story, should not miss here... 14:19, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

I don't think it's a reference. The joke is that Garfield (the character) hates Mondays. 02:09, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

I have watched the Garfield Movie, and this speech seems very similar to one made in the movie. I recommend that someone looks into that. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Looks as if Garfield the president was shot on a Saturday (July 2, 1881) and died on a Monday (September 19, 1881). In between he probably wasn't a big fan of Saturdays, hard to say what his final take on Mondays was. Assuming that after being shot the president indeed disliked Saturdays and assuming that being dead is worse than being shot, the cat was right then; Mondays are worse. MK
