One Egg or Two? - by Robert Ringer

One Egg or Two? - by Robert Ringer: I think it was Groucho Marx who used to tell the joke about a guy standing on a street corner and repeatedly hitting himself over the head with a hammer. A fellow comes along and asks him why he’s inflicting such pain on himself, to which he replies, “Because it feels so good when I stop…


This tickles me a bit.  It tickles me because it seems like there's is this expectation that everybody "be nice".  "One egg or two", the waiter is said to ask.  What about no damned eggs!  If you don't want an egg, don't let yourself be buffaloed into "ordering" an egg! 

Somebody may think I am not a nice person for saying that.  Believe me, I can and do act like that.  Which makes me laugh.  Why?

Beats the hell out of me.  But let me segue into my main point...

Trump is going to fold over the shutdown issue when he ought to win on the merits.  Why would he do that?  Because he wants to be "nice".

Groan.  The GOP is probably the guys hitting themselves over the head with a hammer about now.  It feels so much better now...


The fourth paragraph above needed a bit of correction.  I am not like that all the time.  I at least try to be polite most of the time.  I can and will act like that when I think the situation calls for it. 


One egg or two is a Jedi mind trick.  Why let anybody pull that one on you?
