  • Brain Injury Awareness Month
  • Aphasia Awareness Month
  • Effective Communications Month (Good luck, aphasics.)
  • Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month (frigging May 15 to June 15 goddammit!)

  • Low-Carb Awareness Month
  • Soul Food Month
  • Dairy Month
  • Beef Awareness Month (Eat more Slim Jims!)
  • Men's Health Awareness Month (Eat more Slim Jims!)

  • Goat Trauma Awareness Month ("Stay alert. Goats are deceitful and can hide just about anywhere.")

  • Safety Month (Green ribbons available!)
  • Potty Training Awareness Month (Gotta add that to my to-do list.)
  • Children's Awareness Month (If you spot one, report it immediately to the authorities. They're deceitful and can hide just about anywhere.)

re: Awareness Awareness Month My favorite is caffeine awareness month in March. There's even a quiz to determine if you're an addict: ttp://www.caffeineawareness.or...

re: Awareness Awareness Month It might make more sense for National Condom Week (Feb 13-18) to be held during Alcohol Awareness Month, no?

re: Awareness Awareness Month I slept through that one in preparation for April, Alcohol Awareness Month. Don't remember whether there was a test.

Lake Awareness Month


National Drowning Prevention Day

Nice to see synchronized awareness issues. Remember, no swimming until an hour after your lunch.

re: Awareness Awareness Month I'm addicted to caffeine, Larry likes to drink and Michael, you...swim? C'mon, you can do better than that.

How about Smoking Awareness Month, Problem Gambling Awareness Week or at least National Hand Washing Awareness Week?
