From today's email...

...comes something that makes me want to break my usual habit of not posting all the hideous garbage people "forward" to others....

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best
wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible,
low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral celebration of the
winter solstice holiday, practiced with the most enjoyable
traditions of religious persuasion or secular practices of
your choice with respect for the religious/secular persuasions
and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice
religious or secular traditions at all.

I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling
and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the
generally accepted calendar year 2007, but not without due
respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose
contributions to society have helped make our country great
(not to imply that the UK is necessarily greater than any
other country) and without regard to the race, creed, colour,
age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of
the wishee.

By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms:

This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal.

It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original
greeting.

It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement
any of the wishes for her/himself or others and is void
where prohibited by law, and is revocable at the sole
discretion of the wisher.

This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the
usual application of good tidings for a period of one year
or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting,
whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement
of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion
of the wisher.


I guess that just about says it all!

I received this last week and thought of re-posting it, but was afraid people would think I'd turned "politically correct". In your case, Scribbs, we KNOW that isn't the case. :)

Yeah, I wish that for you, Scribbs.

I got that last week and immediately sent it to one of our best friends - our lawyer. Figured it was exactly right for him. He's such a miserable prick, I haven't had a response. Probably best - he'd probably bill me for one.
