I have to echo a certain Storyteller whose posting of his take on the statement. "Truths are simple" created a very long object lesson of the statements simple truth.
It is all the things we do to truth; inverted reasoning, pretzel bend extrapolations and flourished arguments that muddies clear water. It is what we do to truth to make it fit our pet belief systems or support our opinions and actions that complicates and obfuscates it.
It made me giggle. I like irony.
Even when I am myself unintentionally ironic, I find it funny.
However, its easier to see the funny when its someone else.
