This year... right now... May Day is Jay Day!
The day we randomly, for no particular reason -- other than that we saw #JayDay getting discussed by Degrassi fans (such as @DegrassiDaily and @HeatherPoulette) on Twitter a lot and we're as obsessed with Jay as anyone and come on, Mike Lobel is stupid hot -- talk a whole heck of a lot about Jay and how awesome he was/is and how much we LOVED the Degrassi Mini where his secret identity was revealed:
Before Fitz, or Owen, or even DiMarco... there was Jay.
Untrustworthy (at first)...
Kinda skeevy in a hot way...
Resourceful if not academically successful...
And frankly kind of a d-bag for a couple years there and did some messed up stuff that we have decided to pretend never happened because we like Mike Lobel...
And also because he was: Funny...
Good with cars...
A decent friend... sometimes... eventually...
And a big ol' softie when it came down to it.
Tell us in the comments, what do YOU love about Jay?
If you had to choose between Jay and waffles with ice cream, which would you choose?
How many Jays would it take to screw in a lightbulb?
If a Jay fell in the woods and there was no one there to hear, would he make out with me?
Remember that time I told Mike Lobel I loved him and he was cool about it because he's so nice?
What would you wear on your first date with Jay?
What's your favorite color shirt for Jay to wear?
Remember how saucy he was in the "On the Set" video from Degrassi Goes Hollywood?
How many times do you want to watch "Redemption Song" (the one where Jay goes to Bible camp) right now?
Is JayDay weirding you out? It's ok. You can just close your eyes and pretend it's not happening while the rest of us dance around the Jay fire in coveralls and practice our fancy British accents and our knowing smirks.
OH LOOK! Here are way too many pictures of Jay!

Did we mention he's good with cars?

Sometimes I forget how evil Jay was when he first showed up on Degrassi, but Mike Lobel (who played him) has never been evil ever. If you've ever wondered what it's like to hop on the phone with him and have a lickle chit chat, this podcast call we did with him back in the day is pretty indicative:
