You can run, but you can’t hide. There are no more dreaded words than “Give me an honest opinion.”
Sound advice – especially if the person soliciting an honest opinion is a woman 😉
Or anyone who is bigger than you.
How about telling a white lie?
That might work too, as long as they don’t find out.
Excellent advice from Binky.
Words to live by!
Yes, Binky answer is a wise answer. “Run.”
It has served me well.
I hope it wasn’t “Does my ass look fat in this dress?” Binky. That’s when you act like a marsupial and scurry off 🙂
Yes, any question involving “fat” makes me run for the nearest burrow.
That’s why I always ask for a dishonest opinion. It may not be the truth, but it always makes me happy 🙂
That’s an excellent suggestion. You have a much better chance of hearing what you want to hear that way.
sometimes it pays to stay out of arms reach!
Yeah, or learn to wear a helmet.
Sometimes I like to go with a whole padded suit.
Stylish AND functional.
The only problem is that if your suit is too padded, people might think you’ve escaped from the funny farm and try to round you up.
it’s a very delicate balance…
Someone’s been reading Freefall
Same basic sentiment, but this strip was made long before I was aware of Freefall.
Lie to me I promise I’ll believe – Sheryl Crow sang that once – I agree with Spency above.
If all lies were golden, life could be sweet.
Well I’m a big person so I should be able to give a woman an honest opinion.. but I think Binky is on to something here.
The next time someone asks me for an honest opinion, I’ll stand behind you!
When somebody asks for my opinion, I usually wear a helmet.
A helmet and full body armor are always a good option.
Hahaha, true true. Great advise, wise one 🙂 First time here, but I’m liking your comics! Subscribed to your RSS 🙂 will be back~
Thanks, Alecho. Wombat wisdom is Binky’s forte.
Either that or take a Twix break! Ha,ha,ha!
It’s always a good time to have a chocolate break.
Another option is to give an honest opinion on a different topic, like this:
Q: Does this dress make me look fat?
A: Dark chocolate tastes better than milk chocolate.
The subtle art of diversion. That’s an excellent ploy.
How did wombats get so SMART??!!
I study a lot.
If you really want an honest opinion then go look in the mirror. I ain’t sayin’ nuthin.
Are you trying to tell me I’m a wombat??!!
Check that…only when a woman asks do you need to run.
I think it all depends on the person/wombie who is doing the asking.
wise words!!! I also find it annoying when people said give me your honest opinion and after that they hate you.
I try not to be like that…when I said give me your honest opinion,I really mean it and will swallow the bitter pill you give me
That’s why giving an honest opinion can be so dangerous.
I’m glad you’re not like that!
If a female asks for an honest opinion, you’d better tell her exactly what she wants to hear if you desire to stay alive. 😀
But what if you don’t know what the answer should be? It’s a dangerous world out there.
You could always offer an honest opinion of something you already know they’d agree with…even if it’s an unrelated topic… or try to distract with flattery!
A couple of good tactics to try!
When asked for an honest opinion, I agree. Lie.
It kind of takes the honesty out of an honest opinion, but it’s a whole lot safer.
People ask for the truth, but can’t deal with the truth.
I like the truth when it’s sweet and happy.
Or duck and cover after you give it. That is of course if you can’t run.
Duck and cover works, too!
Does my scholar cap make me look smart? 🙂
It makes you look smart-ish. For a human. And that’s my honest opinion.
Lucky I can say I like this one and don’t need to worry about you hitting me.
But I wanted to hit you.
