"...I am reminded of some advice dispensed by a self-proclaimed dog expert. “In order to know your dog better,” he said, “you need to become a bit of a dog yourself.” This struck me as being slightly dodgy advice at the time, a fact borne out when an acquaintance of mine, following this line of thinking, joined with his pet dog on the kitchen floor to share a Bavarian Bratwurst sausage bought specially for the occasion and was subsequently savaged about the neck to his severe injury necessitating a hasty trip to the local hospital where he was diagnosed as being a ‘silly ass’.  So perhaps being a ‘silly ass’ is a bona fide medical condition after all?"
