Is it better to step in 'thing', or to step in 'stuff'?

Which would you rather?

Discuss.

'Thing', to me, implies some organization, some structure. The bloody 'thing' I stepped on, while not recognizable as a particular (kind of) animal, 'was' an animal, had some (remaining) structure, and so, to me, was a 'thing'.

'Stuff', on the other hand, to me, is just 'stuff'...like poop, or blood, or vomit....there's no structure to it, just a lump of, a pool of, a splash of, 'stuff'.

Now, I'm just takin' about organics here, what you might run across in your backyard or in the woods (or, your toilet or tub). 'Thing' and 'stuff' get cast different, for me, when we're talkin' about made or built 'things' or 'stuff'.

Rick: What's Glenn's favorite restaurant?

Carl: Please, Dad, don't...

Rick: Popeye's, Carl! Glenn's favorite restaurant is Popeye's!

Walking Dead spoilers:
[Glenn was a character on Walking Dead who was hit on the head with a baseball bat so his eye popped out.]

"Coral" is how Rick pronounces "Carl" when agitated.

It became a meme.

Just prior to the screen grab used in those meme's, Carl had to kill his own mother.

Which, I think, makes the meme jokes even funnier.

The winner of the Turner Prize is to be announced a little later this evening.
It's worth 25,000 and is awarded to a British artist, under the age of 50, considered to have put on the best exhibition of the last 12 months.

Here's one entry. So to speak.

I think it represents a chopped candidate from the RAF Navigation School.
He couldn't find his own arse with both hands and a map.
Don't ask where the map is.

Turner Prize winner to be announced
