About This Quote

For many people, telling the truth can be dangerous. As a result, they often tell half-truths instead. Sometimes they even tell only one-fourth of the truth to get out of trouble. Unfortunately, this is not an effective way to keep people from killing you.

If you want to keep yourself alive, it's better to be funny than truthful. If you tell people the truth and they don't laugh, they'll kill you.
