Sometimes I Am So Funny


Some of us do get stuck with corporate disclaimers not of our own
doing (or liking, I suppose), but your pastiche is worth savoring.

The information in this email has been deleted, and we are notifying you
pursuant to your request, that we can take no action on the information
in this request, nor can we review it, nor can we disseminate it, yea
verily, we cannot copy (oops, might have already done that), or use this
message as the authorization to do so does not appear to be enclosed.
Given that the entity to which it is addressed is not a person, and can
hold no confidences, we are forced to conclude that the message was sent
in error, and that no emissions of any kind are allowed from your
paranoid organization. Some subtle particle of meaning may have been
inadvertently absorbed in scanning to the very important legal
instructions, but we will take steps (such as vigorously pounding our
heads with a medium-weight ball-peen hammer) to remove any traces of
this information forthwith. We greatly appreciate your thoughtful
addition to the permanent stores of the listserv, Usenet, and Google
archives. You're welcome
