That time of year
« on: December 18, 2013, 10:22:26 PM »
I am unabashedly swiping this from another car forum I belong to.  I thought folks over here would also enjoy this:

"Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral, celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, 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…

 

And a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2014, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great, (Not to imply that America is necessarily greater that any other country or is the only “AMERICA” in the western hemisphere), and without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith, choice of computer platform, or sexual preference of the wish-ee.

 

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.

 

Oh yeah. Almost forgot. Merry Christmas."

I have no idea of its true origins.  The guy that posted it on the auto forum has been posting in annually for several years.  It is the "ultimate politically correct legalized" holiday greeting.

I'd almost swear George Carlin was behind that one.  8)
A&P means "Airframe and Powerplant", not the grocery store. :-)
