Perhaps that's what's happened to Lister...
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

U.S. Secretary of Defense: What don't you understand? I work for a certifiable narcissist. I live in a loveless marriage. Within I've had sex three times each time producing a child. The whole world is about to go KABOOM! And my boyfriend of fifteen years dumped me on Wednesday!

Sen. Cleaver Greene: You're boyfriend?

SECDEF: He's a Moderate Republican Congressman from the Midwest and . . . I love him.

Sen. Greene: So he's a "Moderate Republican?" He's just a little bit pro-life, just a little bit pro-gun, and just a tiny bit anti-gay?

“Il faudrait, dans le Code Civil, ajouter partout "du plus fort" au mot loi.”
— Alfred Jarry
"One should, in the civil code, add everywhere 'of the strongest' to the word law." (Doesn't translate very well, basically "loi du plus fort" is "might makes right".)

Jarry is the author of "King Ubu":
