"One of the sayings of a late friend of mine who also once lived in Haworth, author Stan Barstow, was 'Life is too damn short to waste it in constant civility!' While I've no doubt that it's perfectly normal to give proper attention to manners and what one does and says in the public gaze, it equally makes good sense to give expression to one's more wicked side from time to time.
I recall one occasion when another famous friend of mine (who I won't embarrass by identity disclosure as he is still active in the public eye), remarked that he could tell the difference between the working and the middle-class person without ever hearing them speak or observing their manner of attire. When asked how, he simply indicated that he had two sure ways of telling: whether one initially detected the presence of their fart by smell or sound and upon it being detected by present company, did the perpetrator of the foul air acknowledge through a look of embarrassing admission or did they simply shrug it off as belonging elsewhere!
With this in mind, I say, 'Bring it on, man. Go on; blow me away!' " William Forde: February 13th, 2014.
