So I was reading something about Iraq and WMD (weapons of mass destruction) and I thought to myself "WMD might as well mean ‘words of mass deception’." Suddenly I found myself to be clever and witty, but knowing that I had rarely been clever or witty in the past I decided I better check to see if anyone else had used that little turn of phrase. Turning to Google I typed in "words of mass deception" and was rewarded with many references including the website wordsofmassdeception.com. Just as I suspected I was not witty or clever, probably just regurgitating something I’d heard or read and long ago forgotten.
Once again I have to thank Google for its utility in CYA (covering your ass) and avoiding FUBAR (f***ed up beyond all recognition) situations.
