KPB....

Lochnivar February 28 2009 11:45 AM EST

for OB whom doth seek clarification:
KPB = kettle, pot, black

this is a condensed version of the following (from wikipedia)

"The phrase "the pot calling the kettle black" is an idiom used to accuse another speaker of hypocrisy, in that the speaker disparages the subject for a fault or negative behavior that could equally be applied to him or her, though there is an alternative interpretation. In former times cast iron pots and kettles were quickly blackened from the soot of the fire. The pot would then be hypocritical to insult the kettle's colour, since both are black with soot."

My family are partial to tea so to us the kettle would then be the blacker of the two... hence the change in order in my version.

Ohhh, okay. Didn't know that acronym.


You still suck.

Lochnivar February 28 2009 11:49 AM EST

yes, but the point of the KPB is not that I am claiming to not suck, rather that I am claiming you suck more...

QBOddBird February 28 2009 11:55 AM EST

Yes, but your quote says it could be equally applied to the speaker. As the speaker, you cannot accuse me of having greater suckage, only equal or lesser suckage value than yourself!

What is this thread about really?

{cb2}Dinh February 28 2009 11:59 AM EST

OB you started the thread, so there for you were the speaker first.

QBOddBird February 28 2009 12:01 PM EST

I know. I said I was the speaker. Therefore your suckage is equivalent or greater than mine, new vanilla thread participant!

Shade! You suck slightly less due to the events of this past week. :)
