(All emphases in the original.)


The mail is not marked as confidential (as many such mails are). It has been sent as a public announcement. That’s why I reproduce it here. If it is post-dispatchingly* classified as confidential, I promise to remove it.

* It’s a legitimate word, you know, like post-humously classifying someone as a terrorist, criminal etc., after killing them without knowing who they are (while killing them) and regardless of knowing who they were (after killing them). A very modern, high-tech-supported practice to make the world a better place.

I am sorry, I meant a safer place.

Don’t worry. We will soon be in the business of making the world a better place too. The plans are already afoot.

A wag had this to say:

I’m sure there’s a deliberate double meaning to G4S’s slogan which they probably found hilarious in the marketing department and boardroom when they came up with it: (1) creating a feeling of security in the world, and (2) taking it over!

I have to buy some clothes (to say the least). Where can I find a Word Domination T-shirt?

I am sorry again. I meant World Domination.

Don’t worry again. Word Domination is big a step towards World Domination.
