RE: Gala Christmas Party

I’m happy to inform you that the company Christmas Party will take place on December 23rd, starting at noon in the private function room at the Grill House.There will be a cash bar and plenty of drinks! We’ll have a small band playing traditional carols… feel free to sing along. And don’t be surprised if our CEO shows up dressed as Santa Claus! A Christmas tree will be lit at 1:00 PM.  Exchanges of gifts among employees can be done at that time; however, no gift should be over $10.00 to make the giving of gifts easy for everyone’s pockets. This gathering is only for employees!

Our CEO will make a special announcement at that time!

Merry Christmas to you and your family,

Patty

RE: Gala Holiday Party

In no way was yesterday’s memo intended to exclude our Jewish employees. We recognize that Hanukkah is an important holiday, which often coincides with Christmas, though unfortunately not this year. However, from now on, we’re calling it our “Holiday Party.” The same policy applies to any other employees who are not Christians and to those still celebrating Reconciliation Day. There will be no Christmas tree and no Christmas carols will be sung. We will have other types of music for your enjoyment.

Happy now?

Happy Holidays to you and your family,

Patty

RE: Holiday Party

Regarding the note I received from a member of Alcoholics Anonymous requesting a non-drinking table, you didn’t sign your name. I’m happy to accommodate this request, but if I put a sign on a table that reads, “AA Only”, you wouldn’t be anonymous anymore. How am I supposed to handle this?

Somebody?

And sorry, but forget about the gift exchange, no gifts are allowed since the union members feel that $10.00 is too much money and the executives believe $10.00 is a little chintzy.

REMEMBER: NO GIFTS EXCHANGE WILL BE ALLOWED.

RE: Generic Holiday Party

What a diverse group we are! I had no idea that December 20th begins the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which forbids eating and drinking during daylight hours. There goes the party! Seriously, we can appreciate how a luncheon at this time of year does not accommodate our Muslim employees’ beliefs. Perhaps the Grill House can hold off on serving your meal until the end of the party or else package everything for you to take it home in little foil doggy baggy. Will that work?

Meanwhile, I’ve arranged for members of Weight Watchers to sit farthest from the dessert buffet, and pregnant women will get the table closest to the restrooms.

Gays are allowed to sit with each other. Lesbians do not have to sit with Gay men, each group will have their own table.

Yes, there will be flower arrangement for the Gay men’s table.

To the person asking permission to cross dress, the Grill House asks that no cross-dressing be allowed, apparently because of concerns about confusion in the restrooms. Sorry.

We will have booster seats for short people.

Low-fat food will be available for those on a diet.

I am sorry to report that we cannot control the amount of salt used in the food. The Grill House suggests that people with high blood pressure taste a bite first.

There will be fresh “low sugar” fruits as dessert for diabetics, but the restaurant cannot supply “no sugar” desserts. Sorry!

Did I miss anything?!?!?

RE: The F****** Holiday Party

I’ve had it with you vegetarian pricks!!! We’re going to keep this party at the Grill House whether you like it or not, so you can sit quietly at the table furthest from the “grill of death,” as you so quaintly put it, and you’ll get your ****** salad bar, including organic tomatoes. But you know, tomatoes have feelings, too. They scream when you slice them. I’ve heard them scream. I’m hearing them scream right NOW!

The rest of you ****** weirdos can kiss my ass. I hope you all have a rotten holiday!

Drive drunk and die,

The Bitch from Hell!!!

RE: Patty Lewis and Holiday Party

I’m sure I speak for all of us in wishing Patty Lewis a speedy recovery and I’ll continue to forward your cards to her.

In the meantime, management has decided to cancel our Holiday Party and give everyone the afternoon of the 23rd off with full pay.

Happy Holidays!

Muslims Clash With NY Police Over Headscarf

Muslims in America not only are not assimilating into the larger culture, they do not believe rules apply to them.

Rye Playland is an amusement park in Rye, Westchester County, New York. Like other parks, Rye Playland has a policy ensuring its customers’ ride safety. The safety rules are posted on Rye’s website and include these:

Loose articles and personal possessions such as electronic devices, keys, hats, glasses, backpacks, purses and stuffed animals should be left at home, kept in a locker or left with a non-rider while at the Park or on rides. Lockers are provided for a fee, and some rides provide shared bins. All items and clothing must be appropriately secured while on a ride; some smaller items can be stored/secured in cargo pockets or waist pouches. Hats must be secured, and jackets/sweaters must be worn properly and not around the waist while on a ride. Some rides do not allow backpacks, purses or head gear of any kind.”

But the amusement park was shut down on Tuesday, August 30, 2011, when Muslims scuffled with cops because women refusing to remove their head scarves were barred from the rides.

Corinne Lestch and Bill Hutchinson report for the NY Daily News that 15 people, including 3 women, were charged with disorderly conduct and assault in the chaos.

The ugly incident happened just after 1 p.m. The Westchester County park was packed with Muslims celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr – the holiday marking the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. The event was organized by the Muslim American Society of New York, and attracted 3,000 Muslims from Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Westchester County.

One woman, Entisai Ali, began arguing with cops over the amusement park’s head scarf, or hijab, rule.

The ban, which is not Muslim specific, was imposed about 3 years ago mostly to prevent hats from falling onto the tracks of roller coasters and other rides, park officials said.

‘It’s clear, this all happened because we’re Muslim,’ says Dena Meawad. (Norman Y. Lono for News).

Dena Meawad said the woman “just wanted to get on a ride. That was it. It’s clear, this all happened because we’re Muslim. The cops started getting loud with her and she started getting loud, too. They pushed her on the ground and arrested her.”

Ali’s sister, Ayman Alrabah, 24, of Brooklyn said her husband, brother and father were all tackled by cops and put into handcuffs when they tried to help her sister.

Alrabah said she was unaware of the head-scarf rule until she and her sister tried to get on the park’s Dragon Coasters. “We requested a refund and all of a sudden an argument became a riot. Cops came. They were hitting my brother, my dad. My husband was on the floor and they were handcuffing him. They treated us like animals, like we were nothing. They came with their dogs and sticks. We came to have fun.” She said her 4-year-old son was “traumatized” by seeing his father arrested.

John Hodges, chief inspector of Westchester County Public Safety, insisted that police did not use excessive force. He said up to 100 cops from surrounding departments converged on the park. Two park rangers were injured in the melee, prompting felony assault charges against two people arrested.

Peter Tartaglia, deputy commissioner of Westchester County Parks, said the Muslim American Society of New York was warned in advance of the rule barring head scarves on rides for safety reasons. “Part of our rules and regulations, which we painstakingly told them over and over again, is that certain rides you cannot wear any sort of headgear. It’s a safety issue for us on rides, it could become a projectile.”

The park was closed for about two hours because of the fracas. It reopened at about 6 p.m. Many Muslims were given refunds as they left the park.

Zead Ramadan, president of the infamous CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations-New York), blamed Islamaphobia for the fracas, “In this heightened state of Islamaphobia, a woman wearing a hajib is an easy target these days.”

Obama is a Devoted Christian

and I'm the Tooth Fairy!

Obama Issues Statement Marking Ramadan, But No Easter Statement This Year

Via CNS News: President Barack Obama on Monday issued a statement marking the start of Ramadan, the month devoted to prayer and fasting in the Muslim religion.

“As Ramadan begins, Michelle and I would like to send our best wishes to Muslim communities in the United States and around the world,” the statement reads. “Ramadan is a festive time that is anticipated for months by Muslims everywhere.”

Obama did not issue a statement marking Easter this year, and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked about it during a press conference on April 25. “You guys traditionally put out statements or proclamations on various religious holidays and I don’t think I saw one from the president on Easter yesterday and was just wondering if there’s any reason one didn’t go out?” a reporter asked.

Carney responded, “You know, the president went to the church yesterday; it was well covered. I’m not sure if we put out a statement or not, but he obviously personally celebrated Easter with his family and went to church to celebrate that, and–”

Another reported interjected, “Wait a minute. The highest Christian holiday and you don’t know if he put out a statement?” Carney responded, “I’m glad you’re asking these key important questions, guys. The fact is, the president took his family to church in a very high-profile way to celebrate Easter. I think it was highly visible to most Americans. And he – as a devoted Christian, he believes it’s a very important holiday for him personally, for his family and for Christians around the country.”

A review of presidential statements documented at whitehouse.gov indicates that Obama has apparently not issued a statement specifically about Easter since taking office in January 2009.

Obama a devoted Christian? Just like he’s the greatest president evah…

Muslims Are Such Spiritual People!

Flag of the People's Democratic Republic of Algeria

Muslims across the world are feasting because Ramadan is over.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and the month of fasting. During Ramadan, Muslims refrain from eating, drinking and sexual relations from dawn until sunset — all for the sake of Allah and to teach Muslims about patience, humility, and spirituality. During the month, Muslims also are suposed to pray more than usual, ask forgiveness for past sins, and try to purify themselves through self-restraint and good deeds.

Alas, the government of the Arabic Islamic country of Algeria in North Africa (the 11th-largest country in the world!) is unclear on the concept. David E. Miller of the Jerusalem Post reports on September 7, 2010:

Police in Algeria have detained ten men for allegedly eating in public in violation of the sanctity of Ramadan.

Police picked up the young men in a restaurant in the province of Bejaya, east of the capital Algiers after neighbors complained of the alleged public desecration of the Islamic faith’s ban on eating during daylight in the holy month.

The young men face up to two years in prison for the “crime” if convicted.

Way to go, Algeria! That’s the spirit of Ramadan! Indeed, Islam is the Religion of Peace!

H/t Weasel Zippers.
