Nikola Silić is one of the writers of the animated show “Elita”. He is also the owner of many cute dogs.
He has said of himself:
“I painted a canvas, they gave me an award.
I photoshopped a photo, they gave me an award.
I made an animated film, they gave me an award.
I made a commercial, they gave me an award.
Mostly I am proud of my humbleness.
I weigh 100+ kilos, which sounds worse when you say 0.1 tonnes.
I’m a fighter against human stupidity, since I found out that people visit psychics, avoid black cats, listen to horoscopes, think that football isn’t fixed, and repeat their favourite phrase ‘Yeah, my (family member) was a (profession) so I’m naturally something of an expert on the subject’.
I believe that it can’t be called pessimism if you’re right.”
