Embarrassing moments

I came across this cartoon by Dave Walker on weblogcartoons.com and I think I'll be 

checking back to this site on a regular basis.   The truism, One picture is worth a thousand 

words  is applicable here.






embarrassing incidents




Why is it we replay embarrassing moments over and over and keep them close at hand, memory-wise?   Is it because, following in the tactics that helped us learn our multiplication tables, repetitive drilling will prevent us from committing the same faux pas?  Or is it part of the self-flagellation that many are prone to practise just to stay modest?
