What was really meant follows:
Yes, our greatest waste of financial resources is returning. Why, you ask? Because otherwise we might actually do something constructive with your dollars -- something responsible, responsive to federations' needs. Why wouldn't we bring this piece of dreck back? After all, we proved that we could waste $2 million (+/-) so far that might otherwise have been used to help the Jewish People, help our communities, our Owners --- so why not waste some more?
Sure, some of you true believers think that Festivus had some value -- of course those would be the acolytes, the sycophants and those who just want to have a swell time under the Big Top. As some wag once said when asked why year after year why he continued to clean up after the elephants at the circus -- "what, and get out of show business?"
I don't know whether to be more angry, more bewildered or simply howling with laughter.
