My cousin Justin – who pores over a stock prospectus like a robin examining a lawn – came across this statement:
The registrant hereby amends this registration statement on such date or dates as may be necessary to delay its effective date until the registrant shall file a further amendment which specifically states that this registration statement shall thereafter become effective in accordance with Section 8(a) of the Securities Act, or until the registration statement shall become effective on such date as the Securities and Exchange Commission, acting pursuant to said Section 8(a), may determine.
It’s hard to imagine that these words were put together by a human being of our species. The writer – who actually thought this was communication – is, even now, moving freely among us.
A scary thought.
The person who wrote that sentence might be shopping in the next aisle over, might have handled the same plum or cherries you’re considering.
The world is populated by all kinds of miscreants and we’re obliged to treat everyone equally – even the person who wrote that sentence. Maybe it was you?
