There’s this one celebrity, Rosie O’Donnell, a talk show host, and she said this: “I don’t know anything about Afghanistan, but I know it’s full of terrorists, speaking as a mother.”
So what is this “speaking as a mother” then?
Is that a euphemism for “talking out of my arse”? “Suspending rational thought for a moment”?
As a rational human being, Al-Qaeda are a loose association of psychopathic zealots who could be rounded up with a sustained police investigation. But speaking as a parent, they’re all eight foot tall, they’ve got lasers under their moustaches, a huge eye in their foreheads and the only way to kill them is to NUKE every country that hasn’t sent us a Christmas card in the the last 20 years!!
“Speaking as a mother”.
Part Troll (2004)
Yes, I think that just about sums it up nicely.
