That's not my finger and I'm not fooling.

You don't look at the mantelpiece when you're poking the fire.

"You don't look at the mantelpiece when you're poking the fire."

...and you can't even see the mantelpiece when you're cleaning the chimney.

Actually, it being St Patrick's Day and all, here's a fave quote from a fave Irish writer, Mr. Brendan Behan:

"There is no situation so dismal that a policeman cannot make it worse."

Richie West, one of the best
Blokes you'll ever find
a solid dude, never rude
and an old friend of mine,
he always had a smiling face
full of love and full of grace,
Rest in peace, great shaper and old friend
To all his friends and family
Love from the Optimist.

"A man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point where he does not discern any truth either in himself or anywhere around him, and thus falls into disrespect towards himself and others. Not respecting anyone, he ceases to love, and having no love, he gives himself up to passions and coarse pleasures, in order to occupy and amuse himself, and in his vices reaches complete bestiality, and it all comes from lying continually to others and to himself. A man who lies to himself is often the first to take offense. It sometimes feels very good to take offense, doesn't it? And surely he knows that no one has offended him, and that he himself has invented the offense and told lies just for the beauty of it, that he has exaggerated for the sake of effect, that he has picked on a word and made a mountain out of a pea — he knows all of that, and still he is the first to take offense, he likes feeling offended, it gives him great pleasure, and thus he reaches the point of real hostility..."

Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov.
