So I've been playing with various quips that could be used for a whole slew of instances where some fool blurts "I'm a [blank]." Here are a few I like.
- What have your personal problems got to do with this?
- I'm sorry. What's your Doctor's prognosis?
- Is that a play for sympathy?
- Oh, you're the one.
The one that crossed my mind, but I feared might be misconstrued given how ill-informed most young lefties are, was "Given that so many good socialists died in Stalin's Gulag, you should know that such an honest declaration won't save you from your own comrades."
Perhaps some of you can think of a few quips that are not too biting. Please add them to the comment stream.
