What version of Go are you using (go version)?
go version go1.4.2 darwin/amd64

What did you do?

What did you expect to see?
Wed Jan 5 00:00:00 0000
error: conflicting day of month and weekday

What did you see instead?
Sat Jan 1 00:00:00 0000
Sun Jan 2 00:00:00 0000

Seems like time.Parse simply ignores weekday value and only looks at day of month.
Simply updating the docs to reflect this should be enough.

The documentation for time.Parse already says, "The day of the week is checked for syntax but it is otherwise ignored." It seems clear enough.
