The Wisdom of Henry #88

When you have nothing to say it is very wise to say nothing.

Or you could just make stuff up. Making stuff up is good, and no doubt very wise.

STUFF:

Quand tu n'as rien à dire, il vaut mieux ne rien dire.

Ou tu pourrais inventer des choses. Inventer est une bonne chose et sans doute, très sage.

OR Retranslated through a famous translation service:

When you have not nothing has to say, it is more better not nothing to say.

Or you could invent things. Invent is a good thing and doubtless, very wise.

I'd be betting they're already aware of this one. However the cat just provided me with some other little nuggets I will be happy to post to your politicians.

I go with the making stuff up. I don't think I could keep my mouth shut that long.
"It's better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt." Somebody famous said that. I don't exactly remember who, but it wasn't me.

"It's better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to get in my fucking face with your shit."

I wrote this EXACT same post on my blog yesterday. Then I took it down as I re-considered and thought it best to say nothing. Then I re-considered my possition once again and wrote this comment.

When somebody leaves a comment I feel kinda obliged to reply - it's just good manners. That may seem like I'm insisting on having the last word, or the last wit, or whatever.

I do have standards. Mostly I ignore them, but they're there.
