Were we celebrate the irrelevance of human differences.

Martian's Day is a national holiday where people paint themselves green and pretend to be Martians for the day. The resulting oddity is intended to reinforce the idea that, with lots of green people acting oddly for a day, natural skin tones and different cultures are not so significant.

This was part of a draft Official Monster Raving Looney Party manifesto that I drew up, but never used, when I was inspired by the last UK General Election. Next time I will have the deposit and 30 signatures, I tell you ...

       sort of Martians Art Day? I'll sign 30 names for you - even use one of my own.

       It would be Martian Performance Art Day, I suppose.   

       BTW the 30 signatures needed to be from registered voters within the consituency that the candidate is standing for. This is apparently quite a tricky task.

       but...Martians AREN'T green and they AREN'T "martians" they are "Fevuvians" ....sure, you think you can call them Martians just b/c some crazy earth guy named their planet Mars... well, mister, I have news for you. You aren't an "earthling" you are a "Bajezugok". So there. ;-) (croissant anyway!)

       do I get more of those happy pills if I'm a good boy?

       runforestrun: Martian experts like yourself would get some TV time to explain how people can behave like Martians, of course. Blissmiss would be on hand to edit the dodumentary into shape ...

       Obligatory there is no black and white - there is only green... Dark greens in the back, light greens in the front of the bus - punchline

       which bit of the bus for my friend dipsy?

       It is a well known fact that barbecued Martians are much greener. They change from pale to deep green when turned on a spit since they're always greener on the other side.
