I read the phrase this morning and would give a lot to have coined it myself:
The phrase rolls off the tongue like pure ghee.
Where it came from, I haven't got a clue. But as a summing up of what it's like when people utter other people's wisdom -- and try to improve their own station ... wowsers! "Turd burglar" at work!
In spiritual endeavor, it is invariably turds from the get-go. Now some dimwit is stealing turds.
Poor old turd burglar.
