I'm OK, you're cute

John Waters has taught me the essential difference between my students and me.

In a Q&A in the June 28, 2010 Globe and Mail the tasteful filmmaker and author of Role Models confesses that he was angry when he made Pink Flamingos. But he ain't angry any more.

"No, no. An angry 60-year-old is an asshole. An angry 20-year-old is cute."

Thanks, John. I'll keep that in mind the next time I'm stuck in a Starbucks lineup.

Or try to decipher the latest traffic signs at the Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport.

Or remember the name of the airport.
