Wish I’d thought of this myself and first, not least in the wake of Ramana’s recent musings and Wise Web Woman offering a spout:
“Opinions are like arses. Everyone has one.”
Naturally, and I will, one can take the implied negativity of that assertion apart. Arses are good. What else would we sit on? Our thumb? And as long as there is a hole we can shit. I am not a doctor but do believe that function vital. Not least since I was given the most awful of all laxatives – Castor oil. I was only four at the time. Leaving its benefits aside swallowing it set me up for all that life offered years hence.
Opinions too serve a purpose. If only to make enemies of some. I’ll leave you with Shackman’s recent and adorable: “If I want your opinion I’ll give it to you.” Take note. That’s class.
