I'd really like to hear you sing it! 
Merry Christmas to you & yours too, Ben!

3) From: Brett Mason
To whom it may concern:
Please cease and desist from using words like "Christmas" in mailing
list posts, as such verbage may be construed as corporate list
sponsorship of one religion over another, and religion in general over
non-religion, to the hurt and exclusion of someone on the list
somewhere.  We must take explicit measures in order to not offend.
Legal counsel for the Association for Burr Grinding is considering
formal action as their product line has been deliberately excluded
from the 12 days of ********* music above.
This is a reasonable request, at this unofficial, and non-formally
sanctioned time of year, and your cooperation is appreciated.

And, really, didn't Christmas stop being a religious holiday about 30
Hallmark cards and 20 white sales ago?  Now, unfortunately, it seems
it's just another time to try and get people to buy more wonderful
things (like a Senseo) that aren't really needed.
To keep the legal counsel of the Association for Burr Grinding happy, a
new jingle will be coming out called "I Saw Mommy Kissing Mazzer
Clause".
Meant for all intents and purposes to be in good humor and inoffensive,

Heh heh. I really hope that was tongue-in-cheek. Anyone actually taking 
that stance is a badly in need of true Christ-mas cheer. And a good cup 
of coffee to boot...
May Christ's Birthday Mass which is the sole reason for the Mass of 
Christ or Christmas be a special occasion to you. If not,  you can sit 
in the waiting room listening to elevator music til the party's over. Do 
try the coffee while you wait...
And, if it's not Christ Mass anymore, then it's just some stupid useless 
holiday sucking our wallets dry - why not just abolish it altogether - 
more money for good coffee and roasters, I say. :)
Grin,
Mike
Merry Christmas, Mr. Potter. Merry Christmas, you old Building and Loan. 
Merry Christmas...

H'bout:
"Grandma got runned over by a lawyer, walking home after a long days 
work. She shoulda used a Zaussenhaus, but used a whirly-blade grinder 
instead." :)
