Old Sayings Retirement Home No. 17

Sir Winston Churchill doesn’t care if he is criticized. After all, he’s dead.

What? You thought I was going to stick with Fred Allen forever? For those of you who do not know what I am talking about — probably the majority of those who read this — I am referring to the new saying at the top of the page by Winston Churchill. I replaced the quote by Fred Allen with another quote by Churchill on the subject of criticism. So please do not criticize me for this. Okay?

Churchill was certainly an interesting specimen. I do not think the current PM of the UK whom I will not name but whose initials are TB would not make a wart on Churchill’s backside. But that’s just my opinion. I never lived in the UK so my opinions about the leaders of that country are, perhaps not worthless, but certainly not worth a lot. So why did I even say anything if my opinion is not worth a lot? I don’t know. We do things sometimes. That’s going to be my mantra from here on out. We do things sometimes. Why did I run that red light officer? I don’t know. We just do things sometimes. It’s kind of simple but it works, don’t you think?

If you don’t think it works, well, I’m sorry but I really don’t care. After all, I have decided that I will not accept criticism today. Now that is a concept that really works. If your boss starts chewing on your arse just tell him: “I don’t know why the job turned out like it did. We do things sometimes, okay? And besides, I’m not accepting criticism today. Try again tomorrow.”

Provided, of course, if you still have a job tomorrow.
