Someone has just sent me an e-mail offering knock-down prices on a product pleasantly-named Fat Blaster - which, said quickly, sounds oddly like “Fat B*s*a*d”!
Or maybe that’s just the over-reaction of a guilt-ridden fatty...
Anyway, the seller has curiously embellished his or her mailing with the following collections of saws and sayings ranging from Anon to Ben Franklin:
“Admiration is the daughter of ignorance.”
“The best of men are but men at best.”
“Children Have Wide Ears and Long Tongues.”
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”
Which is predictably juxtaposed with---
“Love is blind.”
There is also a quote from the Book of Proverbs, Chapter 6, which lists God’s seven most abominated abominations, including:
“A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren…”
Er… what, like spam-peddlers, perhaps?
If so, then I'll leave the Almighty to deal with 'Fat Blasters' and have another slice of cake!
