“I fucking hate people that swear!”

A hypocrisy comes about as the result of expecting something of someone but not being able to adhere to it yourself. Those who practice hypocrisy are known as hypocrites, and are oft-mocked and called out for such actions.

“I've never ended a sentence with a preposition before.”

The word hypocrisy comes from the word hippopotamus, due to the fact that hippos in the wild often preach peace and love towards other animals, but end up eating virtually every animal in sight.
