There are phrases out there in the world that people have tattooed on bodies, printed on clothing and plastered all over social media profiles to make them appear somehow more profound.
I’m talking about the sort of drivel designed to be inspirational or empowering, but actually results in me despising them more than a complete stranger should.
These are words of encouragement to let you know you’re special…a unique little snowflake.
Here are a couple of examples:
“Only God can judge me”
Hmm, I’m not sure I – and groups of people all over the world known as ‘Juries’ – fully agree with that one.
“What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger”
What about arthritis?
Anyway, yesterday at the gym I saw a guy wearing a t shirt with this slogan emblazoned across the back of it.
“No weapon formed against me shall prosper”
So I shot him.
