Maoman: The subject who is truly loyal to the Chief Magistrate will neither advise nor submit to arbitrary measures. - Junius

O’Brian: “Thus it is often said that Chinese are addicted to bragging, boasting, lying, equivocating, and worst of all, slandering others. For years Chinese have been going on about the supreme greatness of China, and making extravagant claims about how Chinese culture can make the world a better place to live in. But because these daydreams never come true, all of this is pure rubbish.” - Bo Yang, “The Ugly Chinaman”

But you’re sayin’… what are ya sayin’?

Hah! I can’t figure this one out either. Often the quote is longer than the post and how many times have I read about moral indignation!

Put in a quote by all means if it adds credence to what you’re saying but otherwise it’s a bit like driving big cars or smoking long cigars I guess.

Don’t take away my quote(which you’ve read 1,107 times as I just know you read every single one of my riveting posts)! Its my p.e.n.i.s substitute, since I can’t afford a red sports car.

And it has meaning – it means anyone who displays moral indignation is an idiot, so of course that doesn’t apply to ANY of you lot, does it?

Oops, I said the p word. Can I say willy instead? or wee-wee? Is wee-wee OK, daddy?

I display indignation, but not the moral kind since I am not an idiot, but a moron!


The more you post, the less you have to say.
– The sage of Shihlin

Dear morally indignant one,

You can say ***** to your hearts content.
***** ***** ***** …
As long as you don’t use it to swear at anyone: “Wolf—you, you, you, ***** !”

But about these silly quotes. Hell, at least rotate them once in a while like my mom does.
Rudyard Kipling was only on the fridge for ten years or so.

I try to change them with different posts, but they don’t stick to a single post. I’ll have to post them inside the refrigerator instead.

Great cleverness seems stupid;
Great eloquence seems awkward.”
