Spring is busting out all over, so there’s plenty to look forward to in The Park in May. Put these events on your calendar:
May 1-31: Park Media’s Month Without Metaphor If you care about language and the way media use it, follow Month Without Metaphor. Now in its eighth year and under the direction of The Serangga Star Adviser’s Priscilla Weevil, the month-long check on media has expanded to include spotlighting our own use—and misuse—of language and the effects thereof. Keep up with MWM every day here on Twitter or grab a KartalTech VerifyzerMHM™ and start your own search for metaphor, hypberole, and manipulation.
May 1: Toe-Hair Contest We’ve been waiting all Winter and now we finally get to see who grew the longest and thickest toe-hairs. Have fun, argue about the outcome, and get inspired for next year!
May 8: Annual Park Mating Dance It’s the most important mating event in The Park and the ongoing partnership with gewper, the only scented social networking site, will make finding your perfect mate simpler and quicker! Registration opens on May 2.
May 20: Anixi Agrarian Jubilee Come celebrate Spring in The Park, and the cultivators, planters, growers, and farmers who produce our Summer and Autumn bounty!
May 30: Otter Mud Slide Opens It’s that time of year again! Slip and slide your way to fun in The Park. There’s no doubt: you “otter” do it!
May 31: The Fowl Ball The most important event in The Park’s Spring social season, this charity gala raises funds to aid The Park’s Avian Community. It’s also a great opportunity for Park Animals to show off their new coats and Spring finery. Be sure to make your grooming appointment early!
