One Week Until Looney June

Gee willikers, where has the time gone?

If you don’t know what Looney June is, let me explain it quickly.

May 4th is Star Wars Day. I’ve never seen Star Wars. However, I’ve seen Space Jam. And Space Jam has to do with astronomy, so it’s basically the same thing as Star Wars. Yet, Space Jam gets no holiday. Therefore, I created Looney June – a spinoff of Looney Tunes, who are the main characters in Space Jam. It will be a month long celebration.

What are we celebrating? Everything looney. That includes: Space Jam, Looney Tunes, and people that act looney on a daily basis – so basically everyone, especially bloggers.

I first mentioned it on May 4th and it seemed like people liked the idea. You can read that here: Looney June Is Coming.

I’m well aware of how much of a flop Looney June will probably be, but the optimist in me thinks this could be big.

As soon as June 1st hits, you all need to be in Looney June mode. Think of it as November 1st. Halloween is over and people start listening to Christmas music and putting up Christmas lights. That’s what I want June 1st to be.

If you don’t post about Looney June on June 1st and the month long holiday fails, that’s on you. You have to live with that. You have to go to sleep at night with that on your conscience. Is that what you want?

Have I guilted anyone into this yet?

This thing needs to grow by word of mouth, too.

For the entire month of June, every time you’re at a red light, roll down your window and shout “Happy Looney June!” to the person in the car next to you, or the unaware adolescents on the sidewalk.

When you go to work and your drowsy co-workers greet you with an obligatory “Good Morning”, I want you to reply, “Happy Looney June!” for the entire month.

Hopefully, that will force them to ask you what you’re talking about. At which point you tell them what Looney June is. Even if they don’t ask, tell them.

Then you must guilt them into spreading the word, for if the holiday fails, it’s their fault. It’s on their conscience. They have to live with it…yada yada yada.

If you have relatives that live far away from you, phone them up and tell them about Looney June.

If you pull up to a drive-thru window, you better tell them you want Looney June with a side of burgers and fries.

I think you get the picture. Basically, be a loud mouth and tell everyone that won’t listen that Looney June is a thing.

Now then, like any holiday, we need some Looney June traditions.

This is what I have come up with so far:

1. Must watch one Looney Tune related video every day of the month. (YouTube).
2. Must impersonate one Looney Tune at least once during the month. (I suggest doing the  Porky Pig voice when someone calls you).
3. Must say “Happy Looney June!” to at least one person every single day.
4. Must create a blog post about Looney June. (In all seriousness, this is optional).
5. Must ask yourself “What Would Bugs Bunny Do?” when forced to make a tough decision.
6. Must eat one cookie every day to celebrate Looney June.
7. Must not worship any false Looney Tunes.
8. Must say “What’s Up Doc?” if you’re eating a carrot.

I’m open to suggestions. The loonier the better.

Guys, this needs to be big. Real big. Looney June needs to sweep the nation…or at least your household. Force people to care in the most annoying ways possibly.

Lie if you have to. If they don’t want to celebrate the Looney Tunes or Space Jam, just say it’s a month to celebrate pizza. They won’t turn that down.

We are one week away from the most disastrous best 30-day holiday ever created.

Looney June is coming, kids. It’s coming.

    Alright, I’m supposed to write a post about Looney June but I have no idea how I would do that, so if you read this, it explains what this hilarious holiday is about and how to spread it, courtesy of the man who invented it. Let’s spread the word!

    My husband loves to be goofy. Not “the Goofy”, just plain goofy! Sometimes it is very over done, frankly, but such is life. The neighborhood kids used to call him “uncle fuzzy” because of his beard and because he did a great Donald Duck impersonation. If he were to add Bugs Bunny’s “what’s up Doc?” and Daffy Ducks, “I’ll slap your silly face off” and Porky Pigs’ “bdeep, bdeep, bedeep, that’s all folks” …………… I think my hubby could very easily get carried away and I might have to wear ear plugs for all of June. Thanks for the offer, anyways. 🙂 …… Bdeep, bdeep, bdeep, that’s all folks!

      Hahaha this comment made my day. You raise legitimate concerns and it sounds like you’ve been through your fair share of cartoon impressions and second-hand embarrassment scenarios, which is why I completely understand why you won’t be celebrating with us. Thanks for the comment! Hope your husband doesn’t get wind of Looney June!

    After falling off the cliff a few times, I will just wait for the pizza instead of allowing the Roadrunner to convince he has it for me.

  8. I wanted to celebrate Looney June by eating pizza every day in June! But when my wife heard about my plans, she said, “oh no you won’t, your big enough already.” I think she has plans to put me on an all carrot diet which means I’m going to be saying “What’s up Doc?” quite a lot in June. Now I’m just trying to figure out why my ears are growing?

    Most of my decisions are based off of “What would Lola Bunny do?” anyway, so I’m basically the poster child for Looney June. Question about the rules – does Tiny Toons count in this too? Because I may or may not have had the theme song stuck in my head the entire time I read this post….

    The problem with Looney Tunes (don’t yell at me) is that I’ve always identified with Tigger, not Daffy. Which might not shock you. But I can never look at Donald Duck again without thinking of him as half naked. Thanks so much for that image!! And I look forward to a 2 day English lesson on what the words “Looney” and “Tunes” mean and then what the cartoons are and then who you are and then why I’m saying Happy Looney June! I think I need a guest speaker.

    I seriously love your posts. You never fail to make me laugh. I have been a big fan of the Looney Tunes all my life (the mini-freakout I had when I saw that netflix added some of the Bugs Bunny movies is proof enough) and the traditions you posted would definitely make the month of June much more enjoyable/entertaining. I am quite impressed! hahahaha

    I read “yada yada yada” as “yoda” yikes Star Wars wants me to not participate in Looney June! But I’m excited for it. Although, I did expect you to end this post with “that’s all folks”, you’re forgiven because one of the rules is to eat a cookie everyday, and that will be glorious.

    If I only do these traditions a couple times during the whole month, will you be mad? I am really bad at remembering… Anything. So I will post, try to find time to watch a couple videos, and impersonate BB in front of people who will understand, but I can’t promise anything.
