Steven Brust: “A masterful storyteller of contagious glee and self-deprecating badassery” —Skyler White

Texas Wisdom #69


One day Chipmonk Joe and Billy-Bob Gautama were sitting around talking.  The subject of Wasted Willie Borgess came up.  Joe said, “He’s a fucking asshole.”  “Now Chip,” said Billy-Bob, “that’s no way to talk.  You talk about someone like that, the only harm it does is to you.”  “Okay, Goat,” said Joe, “what do YOU think of him?”  “Oh, me?” said Billy-Bob.  “Why, I think he’s a fucking asshole, bless his heart.”

  1. sounds like Bill-bob grew up in the country (or Lutheran) – you can say anything you like about someone as long as you follow it up with “bless his heart.”

  2. And bless your heart for saying so. 🙂
