That goes hand in hand with George:

An army without profanity couldn't fight it's way out of a piss-soaked paper bag."
"As for the types of comments I make", he continued with a wry smile, "Sometimes I just, By God, get carried away with my own eloquence."
... and it often seems to me that today we have WAY too many little old ladies thinking we're dealing with afternoon tea parties and not business. Even funnier when it comes from your metro-sexual dirty hippies who need to go back to singing Lesbian Seagull around the drum circle who get their panties in a twist over daring to say something negative about... ANYTHING.
But as I learned at an early age, "if you can't say anything nice" is a cop-out by limp wristed "me too" wussies who want to stamp out anything resembling progress or improvement... Basically the types who are doomed to be employees their entire lives. Ding, fries ready. Back-slapping hug fests with rose coloured glasses do NOT do anything but harm -- anyone who tells you otherwise is selling something.
Or as George said, "If everyone is thinking the same, somebody isn't thinking."
