“I’d like to see things from your point of view, but I can’t get my head that far up my ass”

"I’d like to see things from your point of view, but I can’t seem to get my head that far up my ass” is a jocular put-down that has been printed on many images. Authorship is uncertain.

“I’m trying to see things from your point of view but I can’t get my head that far up my ass. - - Awards and Decorations; FYPB, Lonesome Oozer” was posted on the newsgroup rec.motorcycles on October 4, 1997. “I’m trying to see things from your point of view, But I can’t get my head that far up my ass” was posted on the newsgroup rec.music.artists.amy-grant on August 18, 1998.

“I’d like to see things from your point of view, but I can’t get my head up my rear end” was printed in The Economist (London, UK) on August 21, 1999, and credited to American color commentator and professional wrestler Jerry “The King” Lawler.

“I can’t get my head” is often replaced with “I can’t stick my head.” “I’m trying to see things from your point of view but i can’t stick my head that far up my ass” was posted on Twitter by Tess Elin on November 6, 2008. “Witty Quote of the day: ‘I’m trying to see things from your point of view, but I can’t stick my head that far up my ass’” was posted on Twitter by Andy P. on February 26, 2009.

At this point, I’d like to kick you so hard up yours that you’d be spitting out my odor eaters. :0)

i don’t know who said this, but please take this succinct and straightforward reply: i’m trying to see things from your point of view, but i can’t get my head that far up my ass.

The Economist
21 August 1999, The Economist (London, UK), “United States: Mud-slinging, body-slamming,” pg. 23:
The one who may cut the deepest is Jerry “The King” Lawler, a professional wrestler who is now the commentator on a wildly popular television wrestling programme. Like the governor of Minnesota, Jesse “The Body” Ventura (who encouraged him to run), Mr Lawler believes that a well-known name, and the appeal of an outsider, can collect quite a lot of votes. Mr Lawler shares with the Minnesota governor a penchant for direct talk ("I’d like to see things from your point of view, but I can’t get my head up my rear end").

Another one is available. “I would like to see things from your point of view, but I am just not going to stick my head up your ass.”
