'I hear the Irish Republic is a better place to live since a hierarchy's hold on it loosened. Even before then hardly anyone in the Irish Republic wanted to be ruled again by the London parliament, hence Brendan Behan's words:
The sea, the sea, the blesséd sea!
Long may it flow between England and me,
God help the Scots, they’ll never be free.’

SOCRATES: You must have been very keen to be fooled if you were fooled by a schoolboy prank like that.

Instead of laughing at him you idiots voted for him!"
— When rereading this passage from ‘Old Men In Love’ by Alasdair Gray, all that I could think of was ‘devo max’. Socrates gets it.
Anonymous said: Was told that I'm a misogynist because I argued that Lena Dunham is shallow, overrated, self-indulgent, and boring. How do I respond?
- "I mean, I said the same thing about JJ Abrams…"
- "Be that as it may, it really doesn’t absolve Lena Dunham of being a turd, does it?"
- "How dangerous of you to dismiss my zersonal tastes and ascribe all my preferences to something you can’t possibly know about me. Is this how you approach every idea you don’t agree with? Have you considered wearing a red arm band with your logo on it?"
- "Does being a misogynist mean I don’t have to sit through another season of Girls? Because that would be sick.”

I couldn’t identify a Justin Bieber song if my life depended on it.

I’ll rim him while I’m down there.
