Quote of the Day (Ricky Gervais, on Keeping Opinions to Oneself)

“On Twitter, people sometimes say, ‘Why don’t you keep your opinions to yourself?’ I go, ‘You’re following me. I didn’t tweet at you.’ That’s like going to a notice board in the middle of town, seeing a sign for guitar lessons, and yelling, ‘I DON’T WANT guitar lessons!’ Well, it wasn’t for you.”—Comic Ricky Gervais quoted by Nick Marino, “The Only Real Offense Is Not Being Offensive,” GQ, Mar. 29, 2016
