To be blunt and honest to the point of insulting people without necessarily ( but sometimes ) meaning to do so.
To be acting like Hugh Laurie's character Dr House in the medical drama House.
Young mother: We are not vaccinating....I think some multinational pharmaceutical company wants me to think they work. Pad their bottom line.
House:You know another really good business? Teeny tiny baby coffins. You can get them in frog green or fire engine red. Really. The antibodies in yummy mummy only protect the kid for 6 months, which is why these companies think they can gouge you. They think that you'll spend whatever they ask to keep your kid alive. Want to change things? Prove them wrong. A few hundred parents like you decide they'd rather let their kid die then cough up 40 bucks for a vaccination, believe me, prices will drop REALLY fast.
( House series 1-Episode 2-Paternity.....There is more to this conversation but only used the necessary parts)
