Pretty Much Sums It Up

Tara Reid: I make Jessica Simpson look like a rock scientist.

Yup. That did it for me.

If it weren't for that horse, I wouldn't have spent that year in college.

Most of these read more like somebody thought it would be funny if they overheard them. And somebody needs to keep their day job.

So Sheryl Crow thinks paper napkins are the ultimate waste and that we should only use one square of toilet paper. What about all the empty packaging she's generating from that Revlon Colorist stuff that requires six touch-ups per week?

A colleague of a friend of a friend (etc) apparently heard this one at the Sydney Opera House, around the time of the Olympics:

American tourist (to wife): You see how bright the stars are here...? That's because we're in the Southern Hemisphere. We're a lot closer to them now.

Wife: Um, those are seagulls.

And we can do without the titles before the quotes.

The titles before the quotes really do diminish my enjoyment of these. You're presented with the lame joke before you even get to read the quote it draws its context from.

This sounds like something from a Christopher Durang play.

Bookmarked. It's like Art Linklater ("Kids are Funny..." what was the name of that show?) only with retarded grownups.
Not clinically retarded. The clinically retarded are nice people.

It's true, the titles are like voiceover on stupid video clip shows. I didn't offer it up as a bastion of, well, anything really. But it's lame enough to not be faked.

Reminds me a lot of, which has archives back to 2000. A lot of them may sound made-up until you realize that they're from Berkeley.
