F*cking Brilliant

You've all read Dilbert. And if you haven't, then go read it. And now that you've all read Dilbert, you all know who Scott Adams is. And of course, you know that he has a great blog that he updates daily. You should read it, too, because it's plain brilliant, and he and I have nearly the same philosophical stance on life, free will, money, government and the like.

He also offers truly gems of random thought like this past Saturday's post, called "The Most Obscene Letter":

If you ask me, the most obscene letter in the alphabet is the asterisk. It appears in almost every naughty word you see in print, from f*ck to p*ss to m*th*rf*ck*ng c*cks*ck*r. You can’t even pronounce the word "asterisk" without saying *ss. That smutty little character is attracted to obscenity like flies to sh*t.

To be fair and balanced, it should be noted that the asterisk protects you from seeing naked cuss words that would otherwise blind you and put you on the slippery slope to porn addiction. But when you cover a naughty word’s turgid genitalia with an asterisk, no one knows what the f*ck you're trying to say. That's why it's totally safe!

The man is brilliant. Read his blog daily. You will be wiser for it.
