a friendly reminder

You know how this time of year people start using that joke where they say, "see you next year!" because it's almost the new year and you won't be seeing each other for a couple of weeks but because New Year's Day falls in the midst of the short duration between meetings people think it is a clever joke like it's going to be an entire year (so funny!) when actually it's only a few days or something?

Please do not make that joke. That joke is of comparable lameness to jokes about dentists trying to make conversation with you when your mouth is open and how can you possibly answer their questions? (so funny!) because your mouth is open why do they do that? This joke is by no means seasonal but neither shouldst thou make it.

However, please be aware that "Don't call me Shirley" is still comedy gold.
