Question: What is a bastard exactly?

Quite often we ask ourselves hard to answer questions, like, 

“What is a bastard?”

And we wax philosophic with metaphysical postulations, incomplete aphorisms, and inconsistent sophisms that make one more and more sure that the only true thing is that a picture is worth a thousand words.

The guy behind him, well, he's a bastard.
