I work at a publishing company where people have a ton of fun and get to be as creative as they want to be (for the most part). One of the annual highlights here is the exchanging of x-mas cards. Although I can't actually show a picture of my favorite card (the cover has a close-up shot of one of our writers making a crazy face and shoving a finger up his nose - with a headline that says "Look At What Santa's Pickin' For You!"), I can share the text inside the card, which was incidentally signed by eight different "people," who are actually the different pen names this writer has. The text (with the company's name deleted for obvious reasons) then says:
You are the proud recipient of a PISSI Christmas Card! In an unprecedented move, the P... Institution for the Seriously and Sarcastically Insane (PISSI) has allowed some of its inmates to design and produce their very own Christmas cards. This was done in an effort to not only enhance the inmates' own environment by allowing them to decorate their immediate surroundings (such as their rubber rooms and cell walls), but also in an attempt to aid their rehabilitation process and thus make it easier for the inmates to re-enter mainstream society (may God have mercy on your souls).
We are happy to report that, for the most part, the experiment was a success, and we thank you for your contributions in the form of the small financial donations and all the small digital cameras you, our patrons and supporters, have sent to our inmates for this specific purpose. While not all cameras were successfully employed - some of them had to be surgically removed from a number of inmates - we are, again, happy to report that most of the cameras survived the experiment unharmed and will find further use in the future and in the hands of other inmates.
Due to the "Freedom of Speech" concept we apply as part of these experiments, we here at PISSI would like to apologize in advance for any inconvenience you may encounter or any ill effects you may feel as a direct result of enjoying this Christmas card.
PISSI is not responsible for the editorial content of this card and rejects all legal attempts by the recipient of this card to sue for any emotional and/or physical damage or possible injuries. Any claim of loss of life or limb as a direct result of receiving this card will be viciously fought by our "in-house" battery of currently institutionalized attorneys.
Merry Christmas from PISSI.

Anyway, I got quite a kick out of it, and maybe some among you will as well. :-)
