    Like this variation on "don't throw bricks in a glass house": if you have butter on your forehead you should stay out of the sun.
    Eh? I don't get that one at all..
    Me neither to be honest. It's mostly used in Holland, especially politicians seem to find it a a handy saying when under siege from opposition parties/members. Although these days they usually say the first part about the buttered forehead and leave out the "in the sun" bit.
    Isn't the English version of that "People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones"?

    I'm a grumpy bastard.
