tasting tolerance

As you know today is Rosh Hashanah, a famous Jewish holiday. I have a Jewish friend (hi Andy) but then, I'm a cosmopolitan guy who almost smoked a Dutch cigarillo once. It's important to have diverse, multicultural friends whose belief systems you can wear down over time. One day Andy will worship the alien lizard god. I'm very patient.
Ecard text: 'Happy Rosh Hashanah Day. Even though I have a different religion from you I once tried a plate of Rosh Hashanah in an Indian restuarant and though it was very spicy I'd have it again. Tolerance means being open to everything.'

job description

In the workplace I'm quiet and keep to myself unless I'm engaged in workplace activism like organizing lunchtime hunger-strikes for a Free Tibet or for Free Bagels, or petitioning for departmental cage fights. I got the janitors to go on strike. That's right, they're not taking any more rubbish. Just a little joke. Sometimes I'm not very serious.
Ecard text: At least 45 percent of my unwritten job description is the concealment of exasperation.

jesus forgives

We've been talking a lot about Christmas here lately but let's not forget that Jews also have a Christmas celebration (called Kawanza) that happens sometime between November and February I think. I read that jewish priests ordained it as a sin for Jews to exchange presents, but I'm sure no one will get in trouble if they just send Jewish wrongcards instead.
Ecard text: I think Jesus will forgive you for being Jewish. Some of his best friends were Jewish.

hunting

For those among us who are religiously tolerant enough to get away with laughing at the religiously intolerant, here is today's wrongcard. For everyone else, well, I look forward to your letters.
Ecard text: Nothing brings forth the thrill of the hunt quite like opening the door to Jehovah's Witnesses.

equal opportunities

Ecard text: Well I am glad that they hired you. Even if it was only to prove that they are an equal opportunities employer.
