Dumbass Sayings: “Don’t Knock it Til You’ve Tried it”
Sometimes you walk in on your co-worker fisting the office pet parakeet he looks at you very plainly and says “Hey, don’t knock it til you’ve tried it!” Don’t knock it til you’ve tried it? That sounds like a failed doorbell slogan. Doorbells, don’t knock it til you’ve tried it! Also you don’t have to try an activity before you’re able to denounce or reject said activity. I can say “Decapitating innocent people is wrong” without having to try it first. There are certain knockable actions you can go ahead and knock without trying. Putting your arm up a parakeet’s ass is certainly one of those actions, John. I don’t think anyone had a problem with condemning the Holocaust without first participating at a concentration camp. You simply don’t have to try something before you can knock it. This is a horrible saying that serves merely as an excuse for strange behaviors and weird fetishes. Plus, it’s too similar to “Don’t judge a man until you’ve walked a mile in his shoes.” They basically mean the same thing except the latter is a more comprehensive statement that almost makes sense.
