    Quotable Quotes
    After the depressing events of Mumbai and Black Friday/Walmart, I'd love to see some humor injected into A-G. My favorite is word humor, puns and double-entente especially, so for starters I'd like to present some amusing quotes. These come from a little program called Funny Quotes that came out in the days of OS 9/Classic.
    Examples:
    1. I always wanted to be somebody, but I should have been more specific.
    2. You've got to be very careful if you don't know where you are going, because you might not get there.
    3. When I was born I was so surprised I didn't talk for a year and a half.

    Please contribute some more, give us something to laugh about.

    Now I'll give a nice flurry of George Carlin quotes:


    Women like silent men, they think they're listening.

    "I am" is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that "I do" is the longest sentence?




    The very existence of flame-throwers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done.


    Most people work just hard enough not to get fired and get paid just enough money not to quit.

    You know an odd feeling? Sitting on the toilet eating a chocolate candy bar.
    LOL that's my fav.
    Yes my name is Jaguar.
    No, it is not a joke.
    I don't find your "I'm a cheetah." joke funny.

    How long a minute is depends on which side of the bathroom door you're on.
    Apple is a company, but Macintosh is a community. (aaaawwwgh)
    Mom says Apples are good for me.
    On the box it was written: "Requires Windows 95 or better", so I bought a Macintosh.
    I may not be totally perfect, but parts of me are excellent.
