Quotes/Puzzles You May Never Have To Solve
 
I just completed the puzzle for H. Allen Smith's quote -
Quote:

"The human animal differs from the lesser primates in his passion for lists of "Ten Best"."
In the comments section, Nanrich had suggested that perhaps we list the "ten best" or the "ten hardest" or the "ten stupidest" quotes we've had to solve. I like that idea, and there is a thread going for the nearly impossible quotes to solve (though my contributions to that thread have been far from impossible). But I think it would be fun to post here quotes that we've heard somewhere along the way... humorous or thought provoking quotes that in all likelihood aren't going to be presented to us as a puzzle here at cryptograms. I'll start it off with something I found to be hilarious the first time I heard it, and it's a quote that continues to make me smile every time I think of it...

"I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me than have a full frontal lobotomy." - Unattributed

Anybody else out there got a funny or thought provoking quote for the day?

Decaf? No, it's dangerous to dilute my caffeine stream.

"The radio is broken, it don't work no more The lovely Lisa Kranston Her father invented the secret fuel for the rocket (That's right!)
So she gets to go with a clipboard She writes it down when the meters go around And falls in love in a space warp"
--Frank Zappa

Favourite quote:
 
I just got my sister-in-law a mug that said:

INSTANT HUMAN - JUST ADD COFFEE

I loved it and I don't even drink coffee!

I know you think that you understood what you thought I said, but I am not all that sure that you understand that I seldom say what I think and even less often do I mean what I say.

my own take on an old expression
 
Things can't get stuck in your craw if you don't have one.
