I saw this quote "I refuse to be participated" mentioned as a "W. C. Field's classic". What does it mean exactly ? Is it a fancy way to say "I refuse to participate" ?
Extended quote :
To "Ecumenism" with its pomps and its works the reply of the faithful Catholic must be W.C. Fields' classic: "I refuse to be participated."
