Here's a conversation that took over two years:

"Running a casino is like robbing a bank with no cops around."

I think this might be from the movie "Casino"

Ace Rothstein --- Movie character quotes? Interesting

bonsaisequoia on 2009-07-28 00:22:49
Or is it a Nicholas Pileggi quote, since he wrote the screenplay?

pootie49 on 2009-09-09 18:00:35
Is he any relation to Mitch Pileggi?

bansaisequoia on 2009-11-16 23:53:00
No relation. Just like Donald Duck and Daffy Duck.

Lurker on 2010-04-05 13:27:38
Or Babs and Buster Bunny.

pootie49 on 2011-04-07 01:49:09
or goofy and pluto?

bansaisequoia on 2011-04-16 05:59:08
Actually, Goofy is still regarded as a planet, but Pluto has been downgraded to just another Solar orbiting body. (And rumor has it that Walt Disney's body has been cryogenically preserved on an icy, icy asteroid. I read it in Weekly World News.)

pootie49 on 2011-07-30 09:30:57
There is a planet named Goofy??? Why the hell am I not on it? and if you read it in the WWN then it must be true.

Here's one of my attempts at humor:

And boy, do I know some characters!

Not guilty by reason of insanity.

My case was a hung jury.

kb83 on 2014-12-09 04:50:30
I'd like a new venue.

mazereeuw on 2015-02-18 16:12:55
I'm worried that this judge is an idiot.

marnita on 2015-02-27 08:53:27
Innocent until proven guilty.

MatthewReynolds on 2015-10-02 05:58:40
I remand myself to my own custody.

Now, we really need a LIKE button.

It's a great thread, Ms. Lapp, and since you started it, you're in charge.

I agree about not misquoting people. That's easy to do.

Problem is, I'm too competitive to stop, copy the comments, then post them here. It's always on to the next cryptogram, fast as I can get there. :(

I found your profile on LinkedIn, read it with interest. Going forward, I'll stay within the guidelines, so long as you don't cite the Chicago Manual of Style. (I once did a transcription gig that required reference to the AP Stylebook.)

Munchlet, this one's for you!

Mine is varicose.

kb83 on 2014-07-31 10:12:49
Must be the poemenary vein.

LLapp on 2015-12-10 13:23:32
Mine is clogged with style manuals.
