It's hard to define favourite quotations, because mine change on an almost daily basis. The following is from the latest Viz, from the strip Real Ale Twats shortly after one of the has a whisky.

'And then that ******* landlord of the Cask and Spigot in Ross-On-Wye tried to tell me that British Rail didn't commission the class fifty-five deltic locomotive until 1963...WRONG! IT WAS IN 1961, YOU ******* IGNORAMUS! The bastards name was Roger, AND I'M GOING TO GO BACK THERE AND KILL HIM!'

Somehow it reminded me of some of our follow posters.

@hamilton,
Yeah, but what sounds good today quite often sounds stupid tomorrow.

@noinipo,
That DOES depend, does it not, on what you are driving?

I don't remember who said it--it may have been either Gus or Dys:
"What I say is, a town isn't a town without a whorehouse. It may call itself a town, but unless it's got a whorehouse, it knows it's not fooling a soul."

@hamilton,
Gilbert Chesterton is one of the great Catholic apologists--equal IMO to St. Thomas or St. Anselm.

Here are a couple:
A scientist is happy, not in resting on his attainments but in the steady acquisition of fresh knowledge. - Max Planck
(Not necessarily just for scientists)

I may be a bastard, but I'm not a ******* bastard. - George Clooney's character in From Dusk Till Dawn
