Example: "Wouldn’t Bust a Grape in a Food Fight.”
Lyric from Song: “99 Problems” On Album: The Black Album By Artist: Jay-Z
Translation: “When I get into fights, things like guns and fists are involved. So I’m not afraid of you because even if a fight ensued in which people were using food as weapons, you would be too scared to break a small piece of fruit or pull it out of your pocket unexpectedly, and possibly both.”
In The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k, our favourite 'anti-guru' Sarah Knight unleashed the power of saying no.

Now she's back, doubling down on your happiness with her latest message: You Do You.
Being yourself should be the easiest thing in the world. Yet instead of leaning into who we are, we fight it, listening too closely to what society tells us.
Hilarious and empowering advice, tips and life-changing wisdom on being yourself and doing your thing - from our favourite 'anti-guru' and bestselling sensation Sarah Knight.
For decades, we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. Mark Manson, however, doesn't sugar-coat or equivocate: "F**k positivity," he says in his wildly popular internet blog. "Let's be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it."
Backed by both academic research and well-timed poop jokes, Manson makes the argument that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. It's time to recalibrate what it means to be happy: there are only so many things we can give a f**k about, so we need to figure out which ones really matter.
An antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mindset that has infected modern society, and filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humour, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap in the face for a generation spoiled by being rewarded with gold medals just for showing up.
If you find yourself tongue-tied in awkward situations, panic no more because these five handy pocket books are guaranteed to provide you with a handy one-liner for every sticky moment you can possibly experience, from being caught with your hand in the office biscuit jar one too many times to having accidentally joined the gym and not knowing how to exit without losing face.
