Do you really want to hurt me?

From a Reuters article about Boy George's arraignment on drug charges in New York:

The singer, whose real name is George O'Dowd and who made his name with the 1980s pop band Culture Club, then walked out of the courtroom, sat on a bench and began crying like a baby.

A trite expression or idea: banality, cliché, commonplace, platitude, stereotype, truism.

My oldest never actually cried as a baby. He mewed occasionally when he wanted a cuddle. But crying? Not so much.

In my experience, toddlers are much more prone to tears than infants.
