“It's Very difficult to put your Finger on exactly what 'nice' means and that's why a biscuit has been specially designed to help. The Nice biscuit has a layer of sugar on the top to make it seem sweet, but essentially it's very dull. The same can be said of nice people.”
Guy Browning, How to Be Normal: A Guide for the Perplexed
