That’s like trying to pick up a turd by the clean end.
This came from Nicole Knepper’s blog (link below):
“Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

And, speaking of turds, I remember years and years ago my friend Kim Chamberlain argued with me about how to spell turd. She was convinced it was tird and got pretty nasty about it. I tried to set her to rights but we had no internets back in the olden days and turd wasn’t even in the dictionary. I looked.
But her argument was, “It’s like third. But without the ‘h’.”
Whatever. God, why do I remember things like that? Also, how did _I_ know how to spell it? Read it somewhere, I suppose.
