Opinions


When I set out to write this, I reflected upon the many sayings I’ve come across over the years.  Of course, none of them are my creations, but I thought you might enjoy me sharing a few with you.  Here are the ones I think are most applicable to this post…

“Opinions are like farts—so hard to hold ‘em in, and when one slips, everyone's gonna know it and at least one person is gonna leave the room.”

“Opinions are like armpits—everyone has at least two, and they probably both stink.”

“An opinion is like an asshole—everybody’s got one, but everyone thinks that everyone else’s stinks.”
  
Like you, I couldn’t help but notice a common theme: Opinions just plain stink!  “Why,” you ask?  It’s simple…

Many people think they know everything about everything and love to give advice to others.  What makes things worse is that these same folk do so even when they're completely wrong.  And don’t try to reason with these people—it’s a fruitless endeavor!   Although we all would like to shoot or do other unmentionable things to this kind of people to resolve the issue, these options are not very realistic.  We all know that if we did such things, we’d end up paying the price for their idiocy…

Anyway, my slant is that when they were young, they must have fallen on their respective little heads.  That or they ingested some sort of poison that ate away at their brains; maybe this is all a result of a terrible diet—that must be it!  So, rather than waste your time listening to or trying to reason with these types of people, do what I do: Blame it on fast foods.
