I got this e-mail on my account today. Names erased to protect the guilty:

> Dear ******

Hur hur. To all who don't get the joke, read my reply:

Hey ****,
Sad to say that I don't speak any dialects nor do I have a functional
command of Chinese. Sadly a product of the ACS brand of education and am
effectively monolingual.

Whereupon **** rises at least 5 notches above all textbook civil serfs and replies:

thanks for your reply, ******.
at least you excel in this very important language (English) which the
nation treasures.
Have a nice day. Thxs & Cheers.

Nice to know that the elements of subversion still run strong even in the *** corporation.

Unless of course, he means it all. If he does, that's really scary.
