I love taglines.
I’ve been using taglines since the days before the ‘net as we know it now and have amassed a pretty ‘decent’ collection. I like ’em. They show character (or lack thereof) and generally brighten up the most mundane of emails and posts.
But this one caused a few feathers to be ruffled: –
“Satanism: The perfect religion – screw up & you go to heaven.”
I think it’s rather witty and… well, funny!
Others in the cc: fields didn’t and had this to say to my boss:
“I’m a little bit choked to see a note at the end of this email sent to C****** and others, read carefully. «Satanism: The perfect religion – screw up & you go to heaven.» I think that kind of comment should not be putted in e-mail’s, it’s really not the place. What de you think about that ?
[We de think it’s funnee, that’s why it’s a putted in e-mail’s!]
“Gents, pls make sure Herby’s email signature is modified to removed is religion and Satanism belief. R*** is only the messenger but it is not the first time I hear about it from others.”
[Sure thing. It was duly replaced by “Never underestimate the power of human stupidity.”]
“One more thing, I do not think Herby’s comments at the end of his signature is appropriate in our workplace. You probably are not aware, but USA and Canada we were asked to attend to a mandatory course on “Respect in the workplace”. Maybe you should ask to the company policy on the subject.”
[Very good. But let’s not forget that ‘respect’ goes both ways…]
Today’s tagline: “Cat: The other white meat…”
