@Lockheed Ventura Israel and Russia both have nukes.
If you hover over "Sunday" on their interactive calender, that weekend that Sunday is in becomes "this weekend", while the Saturday five days from then is "oxt weekend." So now this new, wholly unnecessary word can refer to the coming weekend instead of the weekend after the coming weekend. Oy.
Also, "Oxt Weekend" sounds like some kind of Midlands pagan harvest ritual. "What do you mean you didn't buy the Oxt Weekend biscuits? Now I have to run down to the corner shop and pick them up myself. If they have any left, that is, you barmy bastard!"

Who would like to contribute to my Bread and Circus Kickstarter?
The distortion of reality is based on a story of two economies: one consists of people who have so much money it's essentially meaningless, the other of people who have so little money it dictates every single thought and action in their lives. The former can donate $1000 to a joke Kickstarter for potato salad, the latter can't afford potato salad.
