Fingers crossed

This thing's been circulating the net - I found it over on alt.callahans, as passed along by John W Vinson. Presented for your amusement, a Tech Service Message.



Dear World,

We, the United States of America, your top-quality supplier of the ideals of liberty and democracy, would like to apologize for our 2001-2008 interruption in service.

The technical fault that led to this eight-year service outage has been located and the software responsible was replaced on November 4, 2008.

Early tests of the newly-installed program indicate we are now operating correctly and are fully functional as of January 20, 2009. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the outage. We look forward to providing full service and hope to improve in years to come.

We thank you for your patience and understanding.

Sincerely,
The United States Of America

Thanks, but I think my husband might object. :)

I just wish I knew who wrote that. By the time I saw it the serial numbers had fallen off.

And may we get a refund for our downtime? Some bonus liberty would be nice...

If you found that funny, you ought to laugh your head off at this:
