    As Homer Simpson said to Bart when Bart quit playing the guitar:

    Of course I’m not mad. If something’s hard to do, then it’s not worth doing.

    This reminds me of one of the stupidest things people say: “Don’t try, do it!”


    That’s like saying, “Don’t move, exercise!”

    I started my first ever job today and before that, I always considered myself a failure.

    So if it works for me. It can work for Pig!

    Pig will be a failure at Not Trying, because he tried too hard.

    Pig exists to lose. It is his karma. Cartoon-Boy has made it so….

    If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again. If she threatens to call the cops, however, better just give up.
