I've been looking around for a craft fair to fill the space I bowed out of this Saturday, and in my search I requested info on one being held at a local church. It came with a list of clarifications regarding what was and was not allowable (goofy in itself, but whatever), but that's not the part that had me rilling on the floor with laughter - this is too good not to post. Other than the XXX's I've put in to obscure the name, this is verbatim what I received:
Holiday Bizarre Guidelines
We at XXX Church are glad to host you and this Holiday Bizarre and hope we can make your day run smoothly and give you a true sense of feeling welcome. This being a church, however, we do have several guidelines that need to be followed.
-Nothing can be sold or depicted of a political nature
-Nothing can be sold or depicted of a religious nature including astrological symbols
-There can be no palm readers, psychics, or anyone of a similar nature represented
-Smoking, alcoholic beverages, and drugs are prohibited on the premises
-This is a family event and therefore nothing of an “adult” nature is allowed. Therefore any artwork containing nudity, adult language, anything of a sexual nature, or adult subject matter should not be displayed or sold.

The best part is that the author wasn't even the one who sent it out - so this little note made it through at least two people without catching the MAJOR error in wording. Definitely sounds like a bizarre bazaar :)
