Don’t announce that it is Not opposite day so everyone will know what to do.

       It's not meant for voting, just thinking about...

       Croissant. Um. Fishbone.

       I don't... not, understand   

       The paradox unfolds when you actually consider what the opposite of an opposite day is. It's like people who think the opposite of a cat is a dog [-]

       Interesting that Opposite Day is listed in the Wikipedia page as having a regular date of observance, rather than the moveable feast that I celebrated in time of Yore. Opposite Day is the sort of event that should be a trap sprung unexpected during some sort of conversational battle (e.g. "I hate you!"
"Ah, but today is opposite day!"
"I love you! Gah!"), rather than have it so obviously impending, leaving each person on the day carefully picking their logical way through the day, so as to avoid hilarious misunderstanding.

       Am I the only person who had never heard of Opposite Day? (Question intended rhetorically, but if answering, please specify the oppositeness of reply.)

       A very Happy Unbirthday to you!

       I don't not get this. I will not vote [-] and everyone at the office does not know its not opposite day.

       What the hell isn't opposite day?

       Children still love this (game)in the 21st Century. It makes one really think about what they are saying, doing and how to think about things in a different way. Life should be more fun.
