Tom's Corollary to Clark's Law:

Any sufficiently advanced political correctness is indistinguishable from

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 
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;
A fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated 
recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year, 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), and without regard 
to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith, choice 
of computer platform, or sexual orientation of the wisher.
Disclaimer: 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 theirs, and is void where prohibited by law, and is 
revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted to 
perform within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year,
or until the issuance of another holiday greeting, whichever comes first.
In other words.... Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
