Twigs Both Thick and Thin

Repo Man:

Otto: "Lobotomy? Isn't that for loonies?"

Parnell: "Not at all. Friend of mine had one. Designer of the neutron bomb. You ever hear of the neutron bomb? Destroys people - leaves buildings standing. Fits in a suitcase. It's so small, no one knows it's there until - BLAMMO. Eyes melt, skin explodes, everybody dead. So immoral, working on the thing can drive you mad. That's what happened to this friend of mine. So he had a lobotomy. Now he's well again."

Revolutionary war statesman James Otis:

"My dear sister, I hope, when God Almighty in his righteous providence shall take me out of time into eternity, that it will be by a flash of lightning."

In 1778 Otis was standing on his front steps looking at the rain when he was struck and killed by a bolt of lightning.

Ann Coulter:

"Anorexics never have boyfriends. ... That's one way to know you don't have anorexia: if you have a boyfriend."

That could be a confession.


"Three o'clock is always too late or too early for anything you want to do."


"If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?"

This reminds me of something pointed out to me by a friend who happens to be a doctor, that his is a 'practice', with good reason.

Did you hear about the supermodel who stepped on an ant?

It carried her back down the hole and she was never heard from again.
