Being clever is like being a strong swimmer or having good teeth. One doesn’t like people because of those sorts of things. One likes people because they’re good and kind. And I don’t have either of those qualities.I’m mean, selfish and worthless. The fact that I’m still ambling about uselessly on this earth when all those people were burnt off the face of it is definitively the point where ”irony” upgrades to ”taking the piss”.
