Frenkle: I’m standing here staring at rock legend Bruce Dickinson.

Unshrink you?! Well, that would require some sort of a re-bigulator, which is a concept so ridiculous, it makes me want to laugh out loud and chortle, hmm-hey—ahh, but not at you, O holiest of gods, with the wrathfulness and vengeance and the blood reign and the hey, hey, hey, it hurts me.

Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey

If you ever fall off the Sears Tower, just go real limp, because maybe you’ll look like a dummy and people will try to catch you because, hey, free dummy.

I’d rather be rich than stupid.

I bet the main reason the police keep people away from a plane crash is they don’t want anybody walking in and lying down in the crash stuff, then, when somebody comes up, act like they just woke up and go, “What was THAT?!”

To me, boxing is like a ballet, except there’s no music, no choreography, and the dancers hit each other.

If you go flying back through time, and you see somebody else flying forward into the future, it’s probably best to avoid eye contact.

Why do people in ship mutinies always ask for “better treatment”? I’d ask for a pinball machine, because with all that rocking back and forth you’d probably be able to get a lot of free games.

Dad always thought laughter was the best medicine, which I guess is why several of us died of tuberculosis.

Probably the earliest flyswatters were nothing more than some sort of striking surface attached to the end of a long stick.

Too bad you can’t buy a voodoo globe so that you could make the earth
spin real fast and freak everybody out.

I don’t think I’m alone when I say I’d like to see more and more
planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word
itself: “Mankind”. Basically, it’s made up of two separate words—”mank” and “ind”. What do these words mean? It’s a mystery, and
that’s why so is mankind.

Ambition is like a frog sitting on a Venus’ flytrap. The flytrap can
bite and bite, but it won’t bother the frog because it only has little
tiny plant teeth. But some other stuff could happen and it could be
like ambition.

We tend to scoff at the beliefs of the ancients. But we can’t scoff at
them personally, to their faces, and this is what annoys me.

If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them
down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.

If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him
is “God is crying.” And if he asks why God is crying, another cute
thing to tell him is “Probably because of something you did.”

Contrary to what most people say, the most dangerous animal in the
world is not the lion or the tiger or even the elephant. It’s a shark
riding on an elephant’s back, just trampling and eating everything
they see.

If you saw two guys named Hambone and Flippy, which one would you
think liked dolphins the most? I’d say Flippy, wouldn’t you? You’d be
wrong, though. It’s Hambone.

Whenever I see an old lady slip and fall on a wet sidewalk, my first
instinct is to laugh. But then I think, what if I was an ant, and she
fell on me? Then it wouldn’t seem quite so funny.

When I was a kid my favorite relative was Uncle Caveman. After school
we’d all go play in his cave, and every once in a while he would eat
one of us. It wasn’t until later that I found out that Uncle Caveman
was a bear.

Children need encouragement. If a kid gets an answer
right, tell him it was a lucky guess. That way he develops a
good, lucky feeling.

When you die, if you get a choice between going to regular heaven or
pie heaven, choose pie heaven. It might be a trick, but if it’s not,
mmmmmmm, boy.

Whether they find a life there or not, I think Jupiter
should be called an enemy planet.

I hope if dogs ever take over the world, and they chose a king, they don’t just go by size, because I bet there are some chihuahuas with some good ideas.


Hold on to 16 as long as you can
Changes come around real soon, make us women and men
-John Cougar Mellencamp, “Jack and Diane”

Rock and roll ain’t noise pollution
Rock and roll ain’t gonna die
Rock and roll ain’t no pollution
Rock and roll is just rock and roll.
-AC/DC, “Rock and Roll Ain’t Noise Pollution”

If you look at your reflection in the bottom of a well,
what you see is only on the surface.
If you try to see the meaning hidden underneath,
the measure of the depth can be deceiving.
The bottom has a rocky reputation…
You can feel it in the distance, the deeper down you stare
From up above it’s hard to see, but you know it when you’re there.
On the bottom words are shallow,
on the surface talk is cheap,
and you can only judge the distance by the company you keep.
-Joe Walsh, “The Confessor”

Why do we give up our hearts to the past?
And why must we grow up so fast?
-Joe Walsh, “Pretty Maids All in a Row” (Eagles)

Quark: It’s good to want things.
Odo: Even things you can’t have?

-Don Henley, “Everything is Different Now”

My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen-year-old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink, he would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy, the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical, summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we’d make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds, pretty standard, really. At the age of twelve I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen, a Zoroastrian woman named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum, it’s breathtaking. I suggest you try it.

What I didn’t know was the emp—

Norm MacDonald: Hey! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Hang on a second. Did you just say Japan?

Hasselhoff: Yes, I did.

MacDonald: Yeah, well, no offense, you know, but I don’t think anybody cares about Japan. Why don’t you, ah, why don’t you focus on the countries where you’re, you know, you’re popular?

Hasselhoff: Oh. Well, in China we had an incredible experience. The entire cast of “Baywatch” was invited to the Great Wall where hundreds of thousands of Chinese people were chanting in unison, “Baywatch, Ba—”

MacDonald: I don’t care about your stupid trip!! Look, just tell me how you would characterize—in one sentence—the way Germans feel about you.

Hasselhoff: Well, I’ve always been fortunate to get a very positive response from the Germans—

MacDonald: Oh, my God! This is no time for false modesty! We’re runnin’ late, we gotta wrap this thing up! Do Germans love you?

Hasselhoff: Well, “love” is an awfully strong word…

MacDonald: [hand to head] Oh, listen, David, uh… Let’s say a guy had a theory, all right?

Hasselhoff: All right.

MacDonald: A theory that he’s devoted several years of his life to. And let’s say he has a lot of evidence to back up this theory of his.

Hasselhoff: All right.

MacDonald: [puts a large pile of documents, file folders, etc., on desk—Hasselhoff is stunned] Now, don’t you think it would just be common courtesy to help that guy out, you know, and not—not ruin his life?

Hasselhoff: Listen, I don’t know what you want me to say here, pal.

If heaven ain’t a lot like Dixie, I don’t want to go
If heaven ain’t a lot like Dixie, I’d just as soon stay home
If they don’t have a Grand Ole Opry like they do in Tennessee,
just send me to hell or New York City, it would be about the same to me.
-Hank Williams, Jr., “If Heaven Ain’t a Lot Like Dixie”

Homer: Takes one to know one.
Homer’s brain: Swish!

Flanders: Homer, God didn’t set your house on fire.

Lord, I was crazed
And when the feeling came upon me like a tidal wave
I started swearing to my god and on my mother’s grave
that I would love you till the end of time
I swore I would love you till the end of time!

So now I’m praying for the end of time
to hurry up and arrive
’cause if I gotta spend another minute with you
I don’t think that I can really survive
I’ll never break my promise or forget my vow
but God only knows what I can do right now
I’m praying for the end of time
It’s all that I can do
Praying for the end of time, so I can end my time with you!
