Something like the following:

Copyright (c) Foobarbaz 3004

Redistribution and use, with or without modification, of this work is
permitted, with or without attribution.

NO WARANTY... blah blah blah.

You then have provided a license which grants rights equivalent to a
work in the public domain, with the added benifit of disclaiming a
warranty. [You basically are looking at the BSD or MIT/X license
stripped of all the subject to:... and with the addition of with or
without attribution.]
