THE world is full of needlessly cheerful dickheads making provably false statements that piss everyone off. But which one are you?
‘A smile’s just a frown upside down’ dickhead
This is superficially true, but so is ‘a person’s just a corpse that hasn’t died yet’ and nobody wants to hear that wisdom. There may only be small physical differences between two facial expressions but there’s a world of pain between them, you optimistic twat.
‘It might never happen’ dickhead
What, a global pandemic? A new Great Depression? Right-wing dictators waging war on Europe? Look out of the f**king window, dickhead. The only way this cliche could cheer anyone up is if it was referring to the next series of Love Island.
‘Laugh and the world laughs with you’ dickhead
Anyone who’s ever watched Friends with their granny knows this is a load of cock. Laugh, and the world says ‘What are you laughing for? What did she say? Is she meant to be a prostitute? Well, she looks like one. Your great-granddad went with one in Naples during the war.’
‘Dance like nobody’s watching’ dickhead
Who dances when there’s nobody watching? Literally the point of dancing is for others to see it. ‘Perform Hamlet soliloquies like there’s nobody listening.’ ‘Paint a picture then burn it.’ ‘Give shitty cheerful advice to people who don’t want it.’ Same thing.
‘When life gives you lemons, make lemonade’ dickhead
You f**king what? I already didn’t want all these lemons and now I’ve got to set up some kind of beverage manufacturing process? And who gets the lemonade? Let me guess, all the twats who gave me the lemons in the first place.
