Idea from Graham over at Automatic Ballpoint 1) here… 2) here… and 3) here

One of the Ulema of Kerbela made the following trite remark to Sir A. T. Wilson, the Civil Commissioner : ” When a man pulls down a public latrine because it smells too bad, it is a mistake to build the new one with the same bricks ! ”

(Lyell, Thomas. The Ins and Outs of Mesopotamia. London: A.M. Philpot, 1923. Print. page 107)

“Don’t worry about the horse being blind, just load the wagon.” -John Madden
