08:02 PM ET 01.25 | If there are two things Americans love, it's watching the Super Bowl and getting a day off from work. If you're a fan of either of these things, then you're in luck as a new White House petition urges President Obama to move President's Day to the Monday following the Super Bowl rather than some random Monday in February. If you deem moving George Washington's birthday to the Monday after the Super Bowl disrespectful, then we better get some parades that day or something. When was the last time anyone seriously cared when George Washington was born? I was in elementary school and the coolest thing about GW's birthday was that I didn't have school. Now, as grown adults, the coolest thing about George Washington's birthday is we don't have to work -- well most of us anyway. Americans haven't come up with very many good ideas lately but moving President's Day to the Monday after the Super Bowl doesn't only make sense but it's the best idea we've had in quite some time.

What better way to pay homage to Washington and Lincoln than a hangover?

Move it, not much work gets done that day anyhow....

Sometimes my birthday falls on the 3rd monday of Feb. Leave President's Day alone! HA!!

Wow move Washington & Lincoln for the Super Bowl, I'm impressed! They can't sell PSL's!

Wait a minute....the third week of February is called Presidents Week and schools go on winter vacation. It's also the week for car and mattress sales. Don't mess up my calendar, bunky.

Why not just make the Monday after the SB National Hangover Day and allow those too hungover or tired to come to work to take a day of unscheduled vacation?

Of course too tired is only an excuse in the Eastern Time Zone and maybe the Central Time Zone too.

Exactly what I was going to post. If you're going to make it a party, then the damned thing shouldn't end at 10:30 on a Sunday night.

I couldn't care less. I work for a German company, believe me, they don't celebrate Presidents day
