Die Times sucht grade nach einem neuen Motto für Great Britain. (5 words or less)
Das hier war einer der Vorschläge:
GOD (or any type of all inclusive spiritual entity that is based on a vague notion of being „nice“) SAVE (Not that she needs saving – she’s a strong independent woman and we respect that) OUR (Not that she’s an object; we use the term reluctantly and we’re setting up a diversity and tolerance committee to look into possible alternatives) GRACIOUS (not in the monarchial religious sense) QUEEN (By queen we do not wish to offend the homosexual community and assure everyone that any offence is unintentional)
This motto was approved by the „Save the gay, disabled, anorexic, jewish whales with abandonment issues“ Society.
We would also like to apologise in advance for any offence that the assumption that anybody might take offence to this, has caused. If we had known that those who we sought not to offend might be offended by the notion that we thought they might be offended then we wouldn’t have tried not to offend them which would have offended them so we decided not to offend them by assuming they would be offended and therefore offending them which is why we are apologising for offending them by assuming they would be offended.
Happy Holidays. (we also apologise for the notion that the holidays have to be happy as we realise that manic depression is a serious condition.)
Ich persönlich bin ja für „We apologize for the inconvenience.“ …
