Default P.C. Greetings- or How far we've gone over the edge

received this from a friend. It just shows how far we've taken being "politically correct" to extremes.

to my friends:
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 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 2006, 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 than 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, mental capacity, 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.)


Merry Christmas/Happy Chanuka/Happy Kwanzaa and Best wishes for a healthy and peacful New Year! to all my friends at CruiseMates.

I have to object to the word " Happy " on your T shirt. There are so many downtrodden, unhappy and upset people in the world that the word happy could easily be interpreted as meaning that they ( the downtrodden, upset and unhappy people ) should be happy, cheerful and joyful, therefore infringing upon their rights to be downtrodden, unhappy and upset without having to see the word happy on a T shirt.

A plain T might work.

I don't even know about a plain shirt. Then you have to worry about the color. Maybe our birthday suits are better.
