Oh god the mail spam, they just had to throw something in to add frustration to an otherwise bearable holiday. I don't want your crappy fireworks, damn you! I'm changing my address for next year.

I'm not sure if he meant it in the picture, but this brings to mind a famous Computer Science paper titled, 'Get me off your f***ing mailing list'. Not just the title, but the entire paper, and all the graphs, consist of the phrase 'get me off your f***ing mailing list' (asterisks added for politeness!). It was actually published in an academic conference. As you gain some notoriety over time you can quickly get inundated with calls for papers from every new workshop or conference out there. Some will ask you submit 'invited' papers, usually with very lax review requirements. This paper was likely submitted to one of those. You can find it on Google Scholar:http://scholar.google.com/scholar?hl=en&q=%22get+me+off+your%22+%22mailing+list%22&btnG=Search&as_sdt=0%2C31&as_ylo=&as_vis=0 .. it's the second link The first link is another fun one about a paper that was accepted at a conference after being generated entirely from jargon buzzwords by a computer (it also wasn't peer-reviewed).
