We’ve all heard of Godwin’s Law. However, I’ve noticed there’s another paradigm in town. I call it Arsehole’s Law although another name for it could be Dacre’s Law. Arsehole’s Law is not as widespread as Godwin’s but it seems to adhere to the same principles and is becoming predominant on blogs with a UK readership.
Yes, I’m referring to the shrill battle cry of the agumentatively challenged. People are entitled to an opinion but there are increasing incidences of some hysterical, barely articulate, thick as pigshit arsehole invoking the name of the Daily Fail as sole proof a debate is bogus or to stop it dead in its tracks. Practioners of Arsehole’s Law, especially if they believe CiF is the last word in integrity and accuracy, will be laughed at and then invited to chill out in a darkened room.
