Happy Leap Year!

“For some ridiculous reason, to which, however, I’ve no desire to be disloyal,

Some person in authority, I don’t know who, very likely the Astronomer Royal,

Has decided that, although for such a beastly month as February,

twenty-eight days as a rule are plenty,

One year in every four his days shall be reckoned as nine and twenty.”

–W.S. Gilbert. The Pirates of Penzance, Act II.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
