A note from the Dept. of Obviousness

A friend, who asked to remain anonymous (definitely not Bob Johnson from the accounting department at Acme Tool and Die--hi, Bob!), received this e-mail message from the CEO of the company:
Best wishes to all for a very Merry Christmas.

For those who may not be familiar with this holiday, Christians throughout the world celebrate the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem on December 25th. Christians believe Jesus is the Son of God and that God is with us in the baby Jesus. Christians celebrate by attending church on Christmas Eve and singing Christmas Carols. It is a time to be with family and friends and to send cards with wishes for peace on earth and good will to all people.

Really. Swear to God. No, I am not kidding. This was an actual e-mail from the CEO.

Probably the last TVB post till after I celebrate by attending church tonight and singing Christmas carols. It's a Unitarian Universalist congregation, so it's quite possible we'll be singing "Let's Have a Patrick Swayze Christmas This Year":

It's our first post-Swayze Christmas, which is kind of bittersweet.

Happy holidays, all.

Congratulations to you on this precious day after the celebration of the birth of some long-forgotten Santa progenitor.

Jesus was not a myth, however, and I really want you to know. He was actually born in pre-Ecuador in about 231 AD.

Remember his last name -- this is really important: "Gonzales".

That is, if his scriptures inform me correctly.

And not "H. Christ" as has been widely rumored.

And if the pope could get past what he smokes every day and avoid nocturnal female stalkers, he'd no doubt agree with me.

(Jeeesh, whaddya see in a 96-year-old German guy who's probably been with more pets than you can imagine? It's not natural).
