Farmers Don't Give a F*ck About Daylight Savings Time, So Why Does It Still Exist?
When John Oliver isn’t demonstrating why he’d be a terrible thief (for charity), he’s asking the important questions on Last Week Tonight, like “Why Does Daylight Savings still exist?”
Good question, and it comes at no better time than on the Monday after we lose an hour of sleep, when kids — who don’t fucking understand Daylight Savings — are forced from their slumber an hour early and grump around the house in the goddamn dark while parents are feeling hungover from staying up an extra hour the night before because when bedtime rolled around, they felt fantastic!
Well, why does it exist, anyway? Is it because of the Farmers? NO. The farmers don’t give a sh*t about Daylight Savings time. In fact, contrary to popular belief, the farmers had nothing to do with the creation of Daylight Savings Time. It was the Germans.
Those goddamn Germans.
