Subtle Irony
Sunday, November 20, 2005
Just thought I'd share a clever quote I saw tonight. It gives me license to be wrong and look smart at the same time. Hesketh Pearson said:
Only educated people have the right to misquote things. Someone who reads a lot never quotes correctly, obviously because they read too much.

Hence the title.

Thought about calling it, "(Un)Subtle Irony". If you're pointing out irony it's not necessarily subtle anymore.
