OH MY GOD! YOU HAVE TO TAKE THAT QUOTE DOWN!

Apparently he was a 'Kraut' AND an 'academic' who worked at a 'University' as a 'Professor' no less - pampered by the 'Kraut' taxpayer, pontifiating from his 'ivory tower'. The horror!

Never let it be said that I am anything other than broadminded, tolerant and welcoming to all, irrespective of race, religion, politics, 'Old Spice' after-shave, wearing socks with sandals, failing to wear a tie with a suit - why, I even put up with you, 'NIB'!

You're welcome!

I think the quote can be appropriated by just about anyone, which is it's beauty.

I have been known to flash the odd 'perusal' around from time to time

Didn't think it was that unfashionable.

Socks and sandals are a very comfortable combination, wrongly scorned. Shame on you for indulging in this fashionable sockophobia.

And before you complain, I know that "phobia" really means "fear" rather then "hatred", but the new usage will soon be standard, not least because of the theology of the linguists who decry all attempts to defend accuracy as somehow unnatural. What I'd really like is some suffix that implies 'despising': perhaps our chum Jollywolf can suggest one?

I shall put a sock in it, dearieme!
