Many college students now know that international “That’s What She Said” day will be held on February 15th. While logging onto college networking website Facebook, thousands of college students were greeted to an official invitation to this unique event. Created by John Hughes of C. Washington University, the event promotes the usage of the “that’s what she said” phrase in your everyday conversations on February 15th.
Facebook allows students to create accounts by using their college email addresses. This allows individuals the opportunity to be part of a one of a kind college community. One of the neat aspects of the website is the ability to promote upcoming events and parties. Many political and not so serious messages have been expressed through the event option. This upcoming international holiday is the latest to take advantage of Facebook’s ability to reach millions of users.
This unique event was first posted less than a week ago. Within a short period of time, over 90,000 people have confirmed that they will be taking part in this event. Another 8,000 stated that they might be attending, while the creator waits on return responses from another 100,000 people.
The goal of February 15th is too see how much innuendo you can pick up in one day. By focusing on moments in which you can say “that’s what she said”, you will notice how much innuendo slides by you on a daily basis. You are asked to be as creative as possible and to think of unique ways to fit in the phrase. Some examples provided include saying “that’s what she said” when asked if “is this the only color this comes in”, “be careful sir, it is quite hot”, and “does my head look swollen?”.
John Hughes gladly promotes this event as an international holiday. In order to pick up even more steam and to get other people from outside the United States to participate, Hughes has provided the proper foreign ways to say “that’s what she said”. He has even received the aid of a popular young singer from the United Kingdom. She has taken this event and posted it on her blog on Myspace. With in the last two days I have seen advertisements promoting this event all over Myspace as well. This event has truly caught the spirit of our young generation.
Make sure that you are ready for “that’s what she said” day on February 15th. When another individual pulls off this clever saying on something you may have said, make sure to return the favor by doing the same. Keep your ears open for any opportunity and jump at every opportunity. Being aware will allow you to be better prepared for an event that seems to be growing bigger by the day.
