Wacky email disclaimer

I’ve ranted before about the futility and stupidity of email disclaimers that so many people and companies use. Here’s one that someone puts on his email which makes that same point through humour:

This email is for the intended recipient only. If you are not the
intended recipient you must burn your computer, while standing on one
foot and chanting the entire jabberwocky.
The opinions expressed here are not necessarily the opinions of the
person who expressed them.

Yep. All email disclaimers are as silly as this one, it’s just that the author of this one understands that.

  1. I think that if I worked somewhere that appended one of those things I would change my signature to say
    “The disclaimer below was written and automatically inserted by idiots:”
