Damp Rag (Answer 5/9)

Question: I, Georgy Riecke, have been described, variously, as ‘a skulking toad’, ‘a damp rag’, ‘a vaporous nonentity’, ‘a dear little innocent dough-ball’, ‘a lily-livered coward’, ‘a wrinkled old fool’, ‘a waste of space in an endless universe’ and ‘overall a tasteless, shapeless sort of character’. Why?

Answer: Visionary thinkers have always had cabbages thrown at them. That’s just the way it goes. You simply can’t expect everyone to stomach the strong flavours of obscure European literature.

P.S. Feel free to take issue with this answer, preferably accompanying any riposte you should have with a wild and woolly insult.
