There’s plenty of speculation about the significance of 11/11/11 (aside from it being Veterans Day, of course), particularly if you run in circles that are into doomsday predictions or astrology or McDonald’s. The Corduroy Appreciation Club, though, knows exactly what it means: it’s the most important date in history, because it’s the date that most closely resembles corduroy (which they style 11|11|11). Their website proclaims: “The time has come. The wales are aligning . . . Rejoice. Rejoice! Our day has come.”
