- My Dear John
I have to say that I feel really sorry for you if you cannot see what I was
saying had more than a pinch of tongue in cheek.
If you are so narrow minded to take any other attitude, well all I can say
is that you are more to be pity that scolded.
My main objective was to lift spirits and make people laugh rather than put
We have a tradition in my country of pulling someones leg. And we are
merciless in our retorts.
Can I ask you what you mean by small minorities? As I am after all the
original white Anglo-Saxon protestant.
I was and I am firstly a Barbershopper, and I was purely taking the Mickey
out of a fellow Barbershopper and their response to an earlier posting.
You have managed to take what I said in my original message, which by the
way was a warm fraternal greeting (In my native tongue) to all my barbershop
friends throughout the world during our festive season and turn it into the
rants of some small minded extremists.

There we go again. Small minorities trying to govern what we say (or
can't say)! And talk about a minority - Gaelic speaking people!!! My
wife, of the clan Kerr, doesn't even speak Gaelic. And we can all be
thankful of that - the bagpipes are enough! (Remember, pitch on a
bagpipe refers to how far you can "pitch" them.)
Have a great New Year, and may it all be in four-part barbershop harmony!
