I Pity the Fool

Fool Fool me once -- shame on you.
Fool me twice -- shame on me.
Fool myself three, four, or five times in a row -- time to get professional help.

Note on context: the first two lines you already know.  The last one is a comment I made while talking with a client about some other folks we had seen selling themselves a bill of goods over and over and over.  And over.  It was no fun to watch but at least it wasn't us.  This time.

Garfield the cat once said something like, "I need to quit reading my own press releases."  Good advice, that.  And a great excuse for not writing press releases even when your marketing department says you ought to.

So, Jaso dressed up as Mr. T for Halloween this year. But he did it by buying $20 worth of tea bags and draping them over a Burger King Crown, which he then sported all evening long. It was great. Smelled lovely, too - like Earl Grey.
