Okay, I lost. World Rabies Day (Sep 28) and World Toilet Day (Nov 19)?

The first slogans with “Working together to make rabies history!”, which sounds like a go for “Most infections in a 24-hour period”.

The slogans of the second, I don’t even dare to look for. (“Straining together for a better future”, maybe? Or “Give A Crap”? Or “World Toilet Day — this year our collective excrement rains on… Ireland!”)

    Hi there,
    We at the World Toilet Organization are delighted to have been mentioned!

    We realize World Toilet Day does sound strange, but there are actually some really major incentives to raising awareness for sanitation.

    Like…did you know that 18 million (mostly children) die every year because of lack of sanitation? That’s 5,000 dying every single day.

    Can you help us get the word out? We’ve just launched a new website and we are busy at work planning events all around the world to bring attention to this cause:
