Season's Politically Correct Greetings

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 of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2012, 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 nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere.) Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wish.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in 2012

The greeting never gets old!

I enjoy your blog! Granted, I am an unashamed pinko Obama-loving godless unpatriotic baby-eating liberal, but if we can't laugh at ourselves I think we're taking ourselves too seriously.

Anyway, I am confused by something.

You said:
"Of all the blogs you've ever read, this one is the most recent."

This is the subtitle of your blog. What does it mean? I have read blogs that have updated more recently than yours. Of course, right after I read that text, it's true that I have not read any blogs more recently than yours. Is that the intended meaning?
Perhaps it's more obvious than I realize, but it's just such an intriguing thing to say, I had to find out!

I like you, Dave. I haven't had a laugh that genuine in weeks. Might be why I haven't written in so long. Welcome, sir, to my blog. I adapted the tagline on my blog as a joke, based upon something a friend of mine used to say after every meal when we'd eat out at a restaurant for lunch during work....the waitress would ask how it was, and Jody would deadpan "Of all the meals I've ever had, this was the most recent..." and the waitress would look at him with an expression bordering confusion mixed with the "You're a dick" look. It's meant as a bit of a sarcastic poke at myself & a reminder to also not take myself too seriously. I'm an unpaid blogger tossing my opinion around for free, not a paid journalist who has to be nice to everyone. The blog's name itself is a joke about taking over the world by doing nothing.

You and I may have differing political views but we can still get along & be friends. I respect our differences. Again, welcome to the madhouse.
