Quote of the Day (Bonus Edition)


"You can't trust girls. When I get a girlfriend I am not going to tell her where I live or work."

-- Australian humorist David Thorne's 10-year-old son, Seb, as quoted on Thorne's website 27b/6, which could very well be the funniest and most subversive thing on the internet

Sadly, that also applies to boys, sweetie. (note to self: buy more batteries)

If only I had been as wise when I was his age.

The correspondence with Simon Edhouse is priceless. One of the funniest things I have read in weeks. Thanks for posting.

Truer words have never been spoken (not to self: buy your right hand something nice, none scented lotion perhaps)

Oh yes. I love the absolutely ridiculous things he gets away with saying, just to piss people off... like the whole bit about drowning kittens... thrown in with bits of genuine brilliance regarding the stupidity and hypocrisy of the world (the handling of the flash drive his son brought into school and the ensuing punishment is a great example). I'm sure the man is, in fact, a bit of a wanker, but he's also hilariously funny and right on many occasions.

That kid will change his mind once he gets a taste of pussy, so to speak.

Doubtful. I've had plenty of tastes, so to speak, and I still don't trust them. Even if it did "change his mind" wouldn't that just validate his initial suspicions? Nicotine is delightful, but that just makes the fact that it's killing me all the more sinister.
