– Ignatius Wolf –
• Bestiality is frowned on by the squeamish. We’ve all experienced how difficult it is to book into a hotel with our pet llama (the South American alpaca not the Tibetan priest variety) and be refused by some overly cautious jobs-worth at the reception desk. Possibly painful and smelly, bestiality is nevertheless very fashionable in certain quarters – for example, the animal kingdom.
• Adultery is perfectly acceptable providing you get caught. Obviously you’re not in it for the sex – a few crumpled $100 notes will get that for you a lot cheaper and almost certainly better. No, you’re in it for the thrill of letting your friends know what a sexual drawcard you are. The best way to have the good news spread quickly is to be “accidently” discovered at 11pm in a city bar by one of your friends, ideally the one with the biggest mouth. Unless, of course, that’s the person you’ve started sleeping with.
• For practical purposes, anal sex is best practised in private. Utilising public places, such as street corners, tends to startle passing taxi drivers. Finding yourself rescuing a surprised and shaken cabbie from his crashed vehicle may take the gloss off your evening out.
• It is important to know the difference between aural sex and oral sex. Aural sex can be sought out in motel rooms with cardboard walls, oral sex is more likely to be found amongst people with a blinkered view of the world.
• Oedipus wasn’t that complex.
• At least with necrophilia, there’s no question of whether or not your partner will still respect you in the morning. If your social skills are underdeveloped, this could be a viable option.
• Being gay doesn’t automatically make you witty. In fact, your gay-ness may not even make you appealing to others with a similar bent. Perhaps you should consider bi-sexuality – it will double your chances of getting a date.
• 95% of Internet content is pornography, the rest is rubbish.
• Money can buy happiness: the rich have been lying to you.
• High maintenance prima donnas get all the attention at work and in life. Quietly focusing on the job won’t get you a pay rise. Employers aren’t interested in results, they want angst. Give it to them. It fills in their day.
• He who dies with the most toys doesn’t win: he just dies.
• We were put on Earth to make the rich happy.
• Scientology is good for your teeth: look at Tom Cruise.
• There is such a thing as bad publicity.
• You’ll never marry a movie star – they just don’t want to meet you.
- The key to being a good public speaker is misplaced self confidence. 90% of all audience members are silently begging any speaker on any topic to get the hell off the stage. Provided you don't consider the possibility that your audience loathes you, you'll do just fine. Ibsen thought of it as "the saving lie".
• The world loves sports bores.
• Don’t dress your age: mutton dressed as mutton is not an appealing sight
• A full burqa flatters the figure.
• Everyone’s bum looks big in a thong.
• Fashion tip: if you’re going to Hell, wear something cool.
• We are all mad to some degree.
• Country & Western music and Leonard Cohen's musings are not appropriate for psychiatrists’ waiting rooms.
• Stay sane: lie to yourself.
• Climate change is just a swimming lesson for polar bears.
• The al-Qaeda Anger Management Course just isn’t working.
• Let Iran have its nuclear bomb: what could possibly go wrong?
• Memo suicide bombers: there's a good reason those 72 virgins awaiting you are still single.
• Drinking alcohol doesn’t make you more attractive.
• The world would be a better place without calories.
• Use-by-dates are accurate to within two weeks – either side of the date.
