This Should Be A National Holiday...

... and "Fields Day" just seems so appropriate a sobriquet for the observance of the birthday of acclaimed vaudeville juggler W.C. Fields.
The one thing that my dear Pére and I shared was an appreciation for the work of William Claude Dukenfield.

We each also could emit, when prevailed upon, a passable "Go away kid, ye bother me."

I suspect, though, that my father's reading of the line was a tad more determined.
