Greenthings and salivations from Ermine Stag, Tyrant of Arms of the College of Heralds Imaginary!

There is nothing wrong with your OSCAR. Do not attempt to adjust your settings. The College Imaginary is controlling this Letter. We control the per fess, we control the per pale. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your OSCAR.

We are the secret society within your College of Arms and we are dedicated to the humorous side of heraldry. We are among you and we are you. Thus, on this day, we have prepared these items for your amusement and edification.

The following Imaginators of the College were directly involved in the preparation of this Letter, and Ermine Stag wishes to thank them for their imaginations and instantiations: Dandelion, Taisez-Vous, Potent Chief, Kibbe, Anzac Biscuit, Baklava, Agave, Soylent Vert, Ermine Oreo, Butterscotch Crampet, Invisible Coney, Compendium, Grumpy Bear, I Disbelieve!, Vert Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, White Chocolate Cheesecake, and Bend Butcher.

Please stand by for transmission ...
