Back when I was at the university, one of the fun traditions that several of my friends had was what they called “the quote wall”. The quote wall usually consisted of a piece of white butcher paper was taped up to a conviently visable chunk of wall, and they would write on it any particularly pithy or funny quotes they heard. Also, if someone flubbed a sentance in an amusing way, they’d often get written up. Sometimes people would write up intentionally silly things just to get people to scratch their head and chuckle.
It’s been a while since I’ve had a real quote wall, and I’ve had one too many total gems lost to humanity by not writing them down, so I’m going to start a “quote wall” on the blog. Basically if I see a particularly fun quote, I’ll post it here, with a link to the source if it was something I heard online.
Starting off today’s quote wall is a comment from Radley Balko’s weblog, The Agitator:
Watching two stupid people debate is much like watching two ugly people kiss. You cringe, avert your eyes (briefly), and hope to God they’ll stop, for the love of all that’s decent. And yet you’re compelled to keep watching.
