Merry whatsit and happy thingamajig…

Much as I wish I’m the originator of this, the vast majority of the following was shamelessly stolen off the “Intarweb”, then changed from the American specific version to be more applicable to the rest of the world. Enjoy…

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

Please also accept a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2006, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helps make this planet of ours such a wondrous place (not thereby implying, of course, that this is the only planet with intelligent life in the universe or that any other planet is necessarily less wondrous than this one), and without regard to the race, creed, colour, age, physical ability, religious faith, choice of computer platform, 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.)

  1. Help yourself…

    I thought it a beautiful piece of nose-thumbing at the current state of excessive politic correctness.

    That having been said, merry Christmas form a hot and sunny Capetown.
