s a doornail?” But I digress.”

I always liked Forrest Gump’s folky way of putting it: “Stupid is as stupid does”. its become a glib phrase – but its short and sweet and says it If I do something stupid, that’s what makes me stupid. But it doesn’t make the person fundamentally stupid, or everything they say stupid. Just the actions. Lots of folk wisdom and proverbs carry a deeper meaning – that’s why they have sticking power. Or because they’re catchy. “Dead as a doornail” – nobody stops to think “What’s a doornail?” But I digress. “
