While reading about Facebook suicide machine I came across a link to 100 years old essay Desintroductions by Ambrose Bierce which is truly brilliant.

Short citation:

Mr WHITE: Mr Black, knowing the low esteem in  which you hold each other, I have the honor to disintroduce you from Mr Green.

Mr BLACK (bowing): Sir I have long desired the advantage of your unacquaintance.

Mr GREEN (bowing): Charmed to unmeet you, sir. Our acquaintance has distressed me beyond expression. We are greatly indebted to our good friend here for his tact repairing the mischance.

Mr WHITE: Thank you. I’m sure you will become very good strangers.
