The Ten Laws of Dipsh*ttery

1. Inside every person is a dipsh*t trying to get out.

2. Underestimate the destructive potential of dipsh*ts at your own peril.

3. Although sometimes unavoidable, it is always a mistake to interact with dipsh*ts.

4. When in doubt always assume that a dipsh*t is the chronic type unless there is

good reason to believe otherwise.

5. A dipsh*t is as likely as anyone else to be his or her own victim.

6. Whom the gods wish to destroy, they first make a dipsh*t.

7. Do not attribute to malice that which can be explained by dipsh*ttery alone.

8. As dipsh*ts increase numerically, dipsh*ttery multiplies exponentially.

9. Any well-meaning attempt to intervene with a dipsh*t is likely to result in the intervention

itself devolving into dipsh*ttery (see third law).

10. Dipsh*ttery is a force of nature which cannot be eradicated or cured.
