Sometimes when someone asks you to come to their Babylon 5 marathon party you say “I would if only I had the time, but I’ll be busy.” Then they’ll reply “If ifs and buts were candy and nuts we’d have a Merry Christmas!” Okay… I’m not really sure what that’s supposed to mean. I think it’s supposed to mean that people say “if” and “but” a lot so you wish those were good things instead of verbal indicators of rejection. The whole problem with this saying is you condemn the use of “if” and then start your own damn sentence with it. You can’t do that. That kinda ruins your argument. You can’t condemn someone for saying the word “if” and then lead off with it in your rebuttal. You may as well say “If ifs and buts were candy and nuts, but they’re not.” Just go ahead and use both the words you’re against to prove your own point like a moron. This is just a really stupid thing to say.
|If butts were nuts that would bring a whole new meaning to the term "ass backwards."|
