It was decreed, by somebody, that April 27 shall be celebrated by all as Passive Voice Day. The passive voice is always encouraged by us at Fully (sic), especially when clarity is increased. Passive Voice Day is a day when people of all walks of life are asked to embrace the passive, and to ensure that it gets used as much as possible, hoping that the likes of Strunk and White get dutifully ignored. And remember that the #passivevoiceday hashtag should be included when the passive voice is tweeted.
Why should the passive voice be celebrated? It’s explained here by the creator of Passive Voice Day:
Simple. It’s considered fun. No point is being made. It’s just enjoyed when things are taken to an absurd extreme.
Indeed it is.
May a happy Passive Voice Day be had by all.
