There is a scene where Harry and Lloyd talk:

Harry Dunne: How many days are in April?

Lloyd Christmas: 30 days have September, all the rest I can't remember.

Harry Dunne: Must be 31 because nothing rhymes with August.

Lloyd Christmas: Nah, I think it's 32, Harry. April's a leap month.

What's Harry talking about when he said "Nothing rhymes with August"? And what's a leap month? And what is Harry mention August for ?

You must remember that they're both idiots. ;)

Harry is talking about this rhyme that helps you remember how many days are in each month and completely misses its point.

And Lloyd is just confused about the concept of leap years and thinks April always has an extra day. (Of course, there technically are leap months - see here and here - but that's not what he means).

  • Thanks, I know they are idiots and sometimes I am confused about what they've said . And what is Harry mention August for ?

    For no reason, I think it's just an example of how surreal his stupidity is. He's rearranging that old rhyme in his mind and grouping months together in made-up and arbitrary ways.
