Patterico's Pontifications


Best Resignation Letter Ever

Filed under: Humor — Patterico @ 11:28 pm

I don’t know if this is real or not, but it should be:

From: [REDACTED] Sent: Thursday, May 27, 2004 1:11 PM Subject: FW: Goodbye…

As many of you are aware, today is my last day at the firm. It is time for me to move on and I want you to know that I have accepted a position as “Trophy Husband”. This decision was quite easy and took little consideration. However, I am confident this new role represents a welcome change in my life and a step up from my current situation. While I have a high degree of personal respect for PHJW as a law firm, and I have made wonderful friendships during my time here, I am no longer comfortable working for a group largely populated by gossips, backstabbers and Napoleonic personalities. In fact, I dare say that I would rather be dressed up like a pinata and beaten than remain with this group any longer. I wish you continued success in your goals to turn vibrant, productive, dedicated associates into an aimless, shambling group of dry, lifeless husks.

May the smoke from any bridges I burn today be seen far and wide.

Respectfully submitted,


ps. Achilles absent, was Achilles still. (Homer)

This Is A Scream

Power Line has the Copy Editing Error of the Year Award, for this doozy from the Washington Times:

This series of occurrences (along with others) collectively paint a scenario eerily similar to that presented LBJ a generation and a half ago. We should be thankful George W. Bush does not appear to have become immobilized by self-doubt and uncertainty as did his Johnson in 1968.

Yes, we can all be thankful for that.

Disney Hall Concert

Just got back from my last Disney Hall concert of the year: Brahms’ Second Symphony (among other pieces). Wow, what a job they did.

On the way back, we saw Staples Center from the freeway. It looks like the performer tonight was the artist formally known as the “artist formerly known as The Artist (Formerly Known as Prince).” I’m guessing a few more people attended his concert.

Spammer Sentenced to the Joint

Eugene Volokh reports here that a spammer has been sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison.

My guess: he’s hoping he doesn’t run into anyone in prison whose penis he helped to enlarge.
