Are we doing this again?  Well, I'm not.
I've thoroughly documented this up one side and down the other.

You damned well know who says it.
You know damned well what they say, too.

If you're too stubborn, or too thick headed, or just too fucking dense 
to join the 21st Century, you cal wallow in your ignorance all you like.

If it's good enough for pigs to wallow in filth, who am I to say that 
the pig-headed can't?
Enjoy, counselor!
