Yesterday many fans of former President Barack Obama wished him a happy birthday, and the media followed suit in lapdog-tastic fashion. Obama’s birthday will now be recognized annually in Illinois:

A good match was spotted:

But having an annual “Barack Obama Day” raised a question:
Do I get a day off of work for it? If not, who gives a sh*t?

Bad news for those hoping it would result in another state holiday:
Gov. Bruce Rauner has signed a bill into law designating Aug. 4 of each year "Barack Obama Day." No, you don't get the day off from work.
