The worst evil that you can do, psychologically, is to laugh at yourself. That means spitting in your own face.
Of folly, vice, disease, men proud we see; And, (stranger still,) of blockheads' flattery; Whose praise defames; as if a fool should mean, By spitting on your face, to make it clean.Edward Young
The shouting, the overrunning of the Capitol, the sneaking in of Tea Party participants into the basement of the Capitol, the name-calling, the spitting, all of that….

On the Great and Holy Friday we commemorate the holy, saving and awesome sufferings of our Lord and God and Saviour Jesus Christ: the spitting, the striking, the scourging, the cursing, the mockery; the crown of thorns, the purple cloak , the rod, the sponge, the vinegar and gall, the nails, the spear; and above all the cross and the death, which He voluntarily endured for us. Also we commemorate the saving confession of the grateful thief who was crucified with Him.
