A Conversation for Witty Quotes

P.J. O'Rourke

Post 1


I can't believe that nobody has mentioned P.J. yet.
Some samples:

"Drugs have taught an entire generation of
American kids the metric system."

"Humans are the only animals that have children on purpose with the exception of guppies, who like to eat theirs."

"The mystery of government is not how Washington works but how to make it stop."

(on visiting Paraguay and meeting a minor official of the then-ruling Colorado Party):

"The beauty of well-designed fascism is that it gives every piss-ant an anthill to piss from"

I've never heard of P.J. O'Rourke but if those are his "witty" quotes then I can believe no-one(else) has mentioned him yet.

My favourite P.J. quote is: "If the outdoors are so great why aren't the homeless happy?"

Another: "If meat is murder are eggs rape?"

Not very PC but real funny!
