Hi, I am reverting the part about Hillary Clinton's tears for I don't think it is appropriate to mention a politician running in an election as pejoratively in an article that has nothing to do with the campaign. Note that I am not taking any cite in this election, and would do the same for any other candidate in any election. -- lucasbfrtalk 13:42, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
Surely the issue is whether or not Clinton exhibited this behaviour and whether that is verifiable? People get a free pass just because they are in an election? Skomorokhconfer 13:50, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
We cannot verify whether her display of emotion was genuine or not. It's not about giving anyone a pass.--RLent (talk) 18:00, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
The possibilty that the crocodile appears to cry after biting, may come from flushing it's second [eye]lid. This seems logical. Thanks —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 06:15, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
It may be true and well documented that a crocodile weeps, and even more curiously after eating a human, but it is my belief that the term "crocodile tears" first gained its colloquial reference to deception in the Rudyard Kipling's 1902 book "The Just So Stories" in the tale of "The Elephant's Child." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 14:54, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
