«CRITIC, n. A person who boasts himself hard to please because nobody tries to please him.There is a land of pure delight, Beyond the Jordan's flood, Where saints, apparelled all in white, Fling back the critic's mud.And as he legs it through the skies, His pelt a sable hue, He sorrows sore to recognize The missiles that he threw. --Orrin Goof»
