What "They" Say
Dear Wikinutters and Wikinut Visitors,
We are George and Sidney They. This letter is being written and widely circulated to express our acknowlegment of and gratitude for so many people using our ideas as reference points in their daily conversations. When someone says, "They say," the "they" is actually us.
For many years, we were OK with people not knowing who we were. None of our ideas has ever been copyrighted and, so far as we are concerned, all of our ideas and expressed positions are in the category of Public Domain. As we are now aging, it is clear that some oher people will need take up the responsibility we have shouldered now for nearly half-a-century and become that omnipresent reference so relied upon by (often otherwise uninformed) people. Soon, the world of human communication and self-justification will require a new They.
Applications are now being accepted. The basic qualifications include:
1. At least two people (one could only be a He or She, a Him or Her... language and convention require more than one person so the term "They" can continue to be used;)
2. A lot of confidence and a tad or arrogance so that They believe that what they say is, in fact, worthy of using as a legitimizing point of reference and justification;
3. Sufficient humility so as to allow for long-term anonymity, and
4. The willingness to change the (legal) surnames of the people to "They" so as to ensure the continuing integrity of the idea.
Applications can be submitted via the comment section of this post.
Hoping for a rousing response, we are most sincerely yours,
George and Sidney They
