The Quote

Moon him Ozzie!

The Lesson

On the surface this might seem nonsensical. It is difficult to imagine a situation where the best solution to the problem is to have someone mooned. Truthfully, this was probably not the best solution to the problem presented.

On the other hand, wisdom can be learned from many things. In the case at hand, mooning was not really the objective. The objective was to take direct action against someone who was offending the sensibilities of those around him.

The lesson to be learned then is not that mooning someone is a solution, but rather that sometimes taking action, even an ill-considered action, is the best solution to a problem.
