Kamado Joe is ignorant of the meaning of Memorial Day

I just got an email advertisement from kamado Joe.  It is the last I will be receiving as I unsubscribed, and marked the email as spam.

 

It was a colorful picnic with smiling faces all around and a huge block letter scrawl across the top proclaiming

 

"Happy Memorial Day!"

 

Here is a copy of the email I sent them in return.  The language is strong but so are my feeling about crap like this.  I doubt this post will last long, but maybe someone will read it and take a moment to think about what Memorial Day actually means.

 

What the HELL are you idiots saying!  Are you so ####ing stupid you don't know what Memorial Day is about?  Don't know what it means?  Memorial day is to honor the men and women that have given their lives in the service of this country.  IT ISN'T ####ING NATIONAL BBQ DAY MORONS!

 
Why don't you go to a family member's funeral and start wishing all those there "Happy Funeral Day Everyone!, Let's all have a BBQ out back!"
 
Over my 26 years of service and two wars I've lost more friends than you will probably ever have and I resent companies like yours trying to make a buck on shipmates and squadronmates dead bodies.
 
I have purchased my last Kamado product.  Take me off your moronic mailing list.

Everyone gets triggered by something.  Memorial Day, being what was defined by the original poster, is also a very well known beginning-of-summer holiday where lots of folks get together and have barbecue and cookouts.  Walmart has memorial day sales as do many other retailers.  I'm locking this thread and i actually should delete it because of the site rules being broken by the language in the original post.  Just because you got offended doesn't make it ok to use profanity on this website.  

 

@T_om Thanks for your service.
