LBJ Gets It Right

As we watch the spectacle at the U.N. unfold, let us recall one of Lyndon Johnson’s more aromatic remarks about that august body: "Why the U.N. couldn’t pour piss out of a boot if you printed the instructions on the heel."

Maybe Bush should publicly quote the former Democratic president (from Texas!).

I thought the quote was "could not pour piss from a boot with a faucet on the back and instructions on the heel." that is the way I have heard it used many times here in Texas ( mainly while in San Antonio for some unknown reason) and usually without attribution to Landslide Lyndon.

I googled that damn quote every which way and still couldn’t get a bead on where it can from, or if LBJ really said it about the UN (it’s quite popular when said about Congressmen).

Might Mr. Haywood, er, Hayward give us a heads up on this here quote? I mean, "Sock it to me, baby!" :)

In all likelihood the quote is "popular" with all sorts of variations. At some point in the telephone game, it becomes worse to give credit than to simply plagerize. It seems reasonable to not quote sources in casual conversation/jokes/ad hominems. This has two effects, 1) people think you are more clever than you really are, 2) you don’t end up attaching to an authoritative source something inconvinient, since this can end up poisoning the well both ways. In the end does it really matter who said it first?

There is an exception to this clause, but it is limited to what Schopenhauer said about Hegel being a blockhead.
