The early date was selected because of the holiday. Evidently Intuit was going for the Twelve Days of Christmas, but programming ended up messing up and came up a little short of 12 days.
Never being one to miss out on an excuse to play high quality music here, I'm not going to pass on this chance eh. But I do have to run, my ACME bandages seem to make my head bleed worse than before I put them on. Good day, eh!
