The World’s Largest Holiday Disclaimer: 2013 Version

In what has become an annual tradition, Cary Klafter of Intel again shares what I imagine has to be the world’s largest holiday disclaimer, running for 19 pages – nearly 25% greater than the last one

Maybe you have to be a “Star Trek-Next Generation” fan to enjoy this video, but I found it hilarious:

Shareholder on a Shelf: An Earnings Tradition

And then Sharon Merrill’s Dennis Walsh gives us this hilarious holiday poem. Here’s an excerpt:

Have you ever wondered how the SEC could know;
If you’re naughty or nice in making your reported revenues and margins grow;
For 79 years it’s been a big secret;
Which now can be shared, if you promise to keep it.

At reporting time the SEC sends me to you;
I sit in the shadows to watch and report on all that you do;
My job is an assignment from Ms. Mary Jo White herself;
I am her helper, a friendly scout shareholder that sits on a shelf.
