"Being made into soup by cannibals is bad, but it's worse if they forget the salt and pepper."
Professor Dawkins recently managed to offend a number of people with a succession of tactless tweets, of which this is an example:
Learn to think the Dawkins way.
E: Richard, how nice of you to drop into this blog. Well, not nice, really; pretty horrible in fact. But not as bad as having my toenails pulled out. Is it worth pointing out to you that sometimes making gratuitous comparisons is silly and unnecessary, and that it can often be offensive?
Molesworth compares mumps and measles. This is not an endorsement of mumps.
R: But Eccles, this is LOGIC. You just haven't learnt how to THINK, boy!
E: Could you give us another example of your amazing insights, Richard?
"Jack the Ripper wasn't as bad as Hitler."
E: Good point, Richard. Er, is that supposed to be an endorsement of Jack the Ripper, then?
At this point Professor Dawkins lost his temper and stabbed Bruvver Eccles to death.
Reader's voice: That's pretty bad, but thank goodness he didn't cut him up and eat him!
Having your head cut off is bad, but worse if you forgot to put the cat out first!
