For My Democrat 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 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 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 America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere, and without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishes. By accepting these greetings 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 herself or 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."

==========================================

Vapros, I liked it except for the part where it implies that there aren't any Christian Democrats who still wish one another a Merry Christmas. I know they like to pretend that they're the only true patriots left in this country but since when did the Republican Party co-opt Christianity?

SONo, I cut and pasted this from a greeting I received today, because I thought it was sort of clever. Reading it again, I am unable to locate the implication you cited. I doubt that any was intended by the original writer, who was surely just a garden-variety Republican. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

I actually thought it was very funny. But as to implications? That's the really cool thing about innuendo - slippery like an eel - when push comes to squeeze it can never really be pinned down.

I caught the innuendo - but maybe it's cuz I'm good at reading between the lines?

Innuendo - not just an Italian suppository? Well, the whole thing was just a wordy innuendo, but I still have to doubt that there was anything more subtle intended. If I didn't have chores to do, I would hunt the guy down and ask him. Naw, it's not that important.
