Preston at Six Meat Buffet has just the right greeting for you to send to that annoying family member who is the loud lunatic liberal at the dinner table:
“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 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 persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. We also wish you 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..."
There is much more and it will, at the very least, give you a good chuckle, just try not to snort your beverage onto your computer...that would be bad!
I know that each and every one of you knows or is secretly related (the "skeleton" in your family closet) to someone that this greeting would fit to perfection. I could certainly see some of my family clearly through the entire greeting! See, it's okay, you can admit it, it'll do you some good! Now, don't you feel better?
Thanks for the link!
