A Memo from the Columns

While cleaning up the piles of stuff that had accumulated all around my laptop today, I found this memo from our condominium administration department:

The Columns Ayala Avenue Commercial Units will hold their grand opening on Friday, February 8, 2008 from 10AM to 9PM. The event will happen a few days before Chinese New Year, thus planned activities aim to bring good luck and good fortune for the New Year.
In relation to this, the said activity will require a speaker system, which shall be heard, and may possibly generate noise.
In this regard they are seeking for your understanding for whatever inconvenience the event may bring to you.

First, Chinese New Year was the 7th of February; so the event actually occurred a day after Chinese New Year, not a few days before.

Second, what kind of speaker systems are there on the market that are not heard? Isn't that the whole point of a speaker system?

Their speaker system may possibly generate noise.

Again, isn't that the whole point?

Last time I knew, if there wasn't anything present to generate a noise, there wouldn't be anything for us to hear!

The administration certainly didn't place much faith in the system working either!

...may possibly!

That's like saying to a friend, "Hey Nimrod, let's take my car on that camping trip high up into the mountains. It may possibly get us there and back!

Are you going with that putz?
