The Marx Brothers and Christmas

Chico Marx, a conscientious objector in the War on Christmas:
From the movie, A Night at the Opera:
CHICO: Hey, wait, wait. What does this say here, this thing here?
GROUCHO: Oh, that? Oh, that's the usual clause, that's in every contract. That just says, uh, it says, uh, if any of the parties participating in this contract are shown not to be in their right mind, the entire agreement is automatically nullified.
CHICO: Well, I don't know...
GROUCHO: It's all right. That's, that's in every contract. That's, that's what they call a sanity clause.
CHICO: Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! You can't fool me. There ain't no Sanity Clause!
YouTube has the scene.
Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas Tom.

I am a bit out of sorts since yesterday when I discovered that I am now blocked from commenting on all of the blogs which use wordpress (and the DE Lib site).

Someone must have blocked my IP. I guess I'll have to snoop around and see how to rectify it. But not today!

So, Kavips, FSP and DE Lib will be spared my rants (at least from when I'm at my own pc)

In most contracts I've seen, especially those involving government entities, there sure as heck isn't any "sanity clause" ! I am wondering if this little double-entendre isn't quite sadly true.

Merry Christmas to you and yours !

This is getting weirder by the day. Today, I can't even log onto the wordpress sites. My security programs claim that they blocked a virus but I couldn't see which one. WEIRD!
