You just know SOMEBODY is going to accidentally type an "a" instead of an "e".
The scenario the Greys propose on their third page - the entire web turning
grey due to copyright infringement - is ludicrous. The grayday.org page
could propose the opposite argument kind of tongue in cheek - most of the
web turning grey because of Intellectual Property Thought Police allowing
only what has been approved of by multinational media conglomerates that can
afford to pay for everything... or something like that.

Regarding my earlier suggestion of making similar linking gifs to the
Grey's: a good one could be a takeoff on their "Where will you be on Grey Day?", i.e. "Where WON'T you be on Gray Day?"
