And from that philosophical genius, Emily Rose.
“You either win in life or you learn in life.” @EmilyAnnRose (she’s visiting from Boston; we’re brunching at Eggsperience in Chicago!)
Huh, so you can’t win and learn then. Does that mean you can only learn if you lose? You can’t lose and fail to learn, as Donkey has for the past several years on many different fronts? Where does Emily Rose’s important philosophical discovery leave that old adage “live and learn?” What about that Alanis Morissette song, “You Learn?” She won — Jagged Little Pill was HUGE!! — and she learned. What about OMGPEARS-shaped chicks? Can they win and fail to learn, because they are too fat and disgusting and repulsive to men to ever learn? Instead, do they lose and then learn important lessons about the hideousness of their pear shapes? Do they live and learn? What?
p.s. If someone can photo-shop a pear into that photo above, I will be very grateful, and I will have won. But not learned.
