I saw this in a local newspaper and even though it's a tad bit late in the season now thought I'd share it with everyone, as I had a chuckle at how society has changed so rapidly that we even have to dream these kinds of things up. For the undecided among us during the holidays here is something to keep it safe.

“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. “I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2011, 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. Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee. “By accepting these greetings, you consent to receive them electronically. This pertains solely to these greetings, and does not change the way you receive other greetings. “By accepting these greetings, you are accepting the aforementioned terms as stated. This greeting is not 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/himself/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.”

That is hilarious and sad at the same time. Political Correctness has grown and become a monster in our society. This just shows how far out the bird has flown from the cuckoo's nest.

I am willing to bet someone somewhere would still find a way to be offended by this...

Since I am not politically correct, or undecided...

To all those people who offend easily:
Bah humbug.
Grow a set.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Years!
Because I am am American, and while it lasts, I still live in the greatest country in the world!
Thats the tradition I was raised with, and I'll keep it. Thankyou.
While I might have different views from everyone else, you are no better than me.

If you're into trying to appease everyone, good for you.
I am not.
Everyone gets equal treatment from me regardless of your opinions.
I don't care who you are.

Because I know, that people are ridiculous.
And you can't make everyone, no I mean anyone , happy.

No...don't take it personal.
My post was a generalized statement towards those that offend easily.

Not you...
