This is all over the web, even on the BBC web site, so I can't credit whoever

Happy Holidays.

A politically Correct Season Greeting

Holiday Greetings to Everyone

I wanted to send some sort of holiday greeting to my friends, but it is so
difficult in today's world to know exactly what to say without offending
someone. So I met with my attorney yesterday, and on his advice I wish to say
the following:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an
environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, nonaddictive,
gender neutral celebration of the summer 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 Great Britain is necessarily greater than any other country) and without
regard to the race, creed, color, 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.

significant number of electrons were slightly inconvenienced.
