CYNIC, n. A blackguard whose faulty vision sees things as they are, not as they ought to be. Hence the custom among the Scythians of plucking out a cynic's eyes to improve his vision.

If we had some more these, we wouldn't be using so much of those.

Hmmm. I still say that Spanking is the best policy for unacceptable behavior, Janey. It's something to be Optimistic about !
