Quotes + A Few Questions

"It is impossible to defeat an ignorant man in argument."

William G. McAdoo, lawyer and politician (1863-1941)

So, what happens when two ignorant men get into an argument?Do they agree to disagree?

I wish I'd had this quote when my old friend quit emailing me several weeks ago because I didn't welcome his diatribes on Obama and the current administration. Of course, he'd turn it back around on me, I'm sure.....LOL

Why is it that a 12 ounce can of beer lasts longer than a 12 ounce bottle of beer?

Why is it that men won't listen to a suggestion from you until they have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt their original idea doesn't work?

Why is it so hard to type when you have a cat with two paws pulling on your wrist, hoping to get petted?

Why is it that just after you start the dishwasher, you discover another spoon or plate hiding in another room? Ditto for dirty clothing when you've started the washer.

And finally, who wrote the Book of Love?

Was it Warren Davis, George Malone and Charles Patrick? I cheated and searched.... did I do it properly?

Now it is back to sleep since it is only 04.05 hours here right now!

Don't have a dishwasher, unless you count my two hands, but I invariably pull the drain plug to find I forgot the fry pan. Arrgh.

I agree with the beer quote! I tend to try and avoid gender specific quotes though because I don't think men and women fit into 2 neat boxes.

Pat said...

It must have been written by a woman - or a man who thinks like s woman.

themom said...

I must have missed The Book of Love...no Cliff Notes either. LOL.

I have one sock that when I find it and wash it, it disappears again...

I think the Book of Love is a work of fiction.

Bottled stuff tastes better so you drink it faster. IMHO.

I love that quote on top. How true it is.

Darlene said...

I love that ;quote and wish I had it when I was in a running argument with a very right wing nutcase.

You are so right, though. He would turn it back on me, ignorant fool that he is. ;-)

Thanks for the Birthday wishes Judy! We went to Williamsburg for the weekend and had a great time :-)

The book of love is one large continuous compilation of entries made every moment of everyday. We all have our chapters.

LOL @ the kitty. Mine shoves the laptop aside so he can crawl in my lap.
