Dear Worried Customer:
We at [Vendor Name] are also concerned about what's going to happen
to everyone's computers in the year 2000. Fortunately for us, (and
you) we took the initiative several years ago to organize our systems
around Macintosh computers. We have also guided our critical
suppliers in the use of Macintosh computers. Unlike MSdos based
computers, whose Armageddon comes in the year 2000, our Macintoshs
will perform perfectly through the next several centuries.
Since the introduction of Macintosh computers, we have slowly
switched everything over so that we don't have to participate in the
annual rash of panics from viruses, hacks, and security leaks that
the DOS world seems to be constantly embroiled in. Now that the end
of the world is coming, we simply expect to sit back and watch it
Surely we will all suffer from this fiasco in some way or another.
Our entire personal and business lives are entwined in this computer
system designed by short sighted geeks. Not that [Vendor Name] is
totally exempt from this disaster. It's just that our systems and
products will not contribute to the confusion.
We can certify that none of our products know or care what planet
they're on, let alone what year it is. We can also safely certify
that our computer systems will not even hiccup until the year 29,740.
After that, we really have no plans, but we'll get back to you.

My uncle just told us his latest response when telemarketers call to urge him to switch long distance phone services. He says, "I don't have a phone." They usually say, "oh, I'm sorry." and hang up.

A tall weather-worn cowboy walked into the saloon and ordered a beer. The regulars quietly observed the drifter through half-closed eyelids. No one spoke, but they all noticed that the stranger's hat was made of brown wrapping paper. Less obvious was the fact that his shirt and vest were also made of paper. Truth be told, even his chaps, pants, and boots were paper, including the spurs. Of course he was quickly arrested for rustling...
