A Clever Way to Say "Duh"

I mentioned earlier that in January I began using the "read through the Bible in a year" feature on my Palm's Bible software.

This scheduled reading can be interesting for a variety of reasons. Recently I read Proverbs 17:25-26 and it made me laugh.
A foolish son brings grief to his father and bitterness to her who bore him. Also to punish the righteous is not good, nor to beat nobles for their upright behavior.
Um... duh!

I do not normally memorize verse references, or cite them in everyday speech. But I think I might make an exception here. For example, "Well, that was a Proverbs 17:25-26 moment."
