Quote of the Day


"How long am I going to work? How long am I going to live? That's the question. I will work until I drop, or until I lose my head. Until somebody tells me different, I'm not going to quit."

-- Andy Rooney

The problem, of course, is that as far as I can tell Rooney died about ten years ago. And don't even get me started about when he lost his head.

Andy has a job until he tells Jews or blacks to go back to where they came from. But he probably won't say that because he's content to rant about how he misses plain old white bread, and now they've got this white-wheat bread, whatever the heck that is.

I've read that nails appear to grow after death. I didn't realise that was true for eyebrows as well...

The only real difference between Andy Rooney and the rest of broadcast journalism is that Andy actually earned the right to babble incoherently.

Look, we are pretty much forced to adhere to the pantheon of simple pretty faces (male & female)in expensive suits with absolutely no substance dictating the "news" every night on CNN or the dreadful FOX and their conservative media-whore of the night. [Anderson excluded]

I will take this babbling unpretentious curmudgeon any day.

Andy Rooney: living self-affirming symbolism for Boomers everywhere.

Andy Rooney is an odd little piece of whimsy in a news culture of relentless, loud-mouthed dumb

He is also definitely a zombie.

Actually this is the best impersonation, by Tracey Ullman. Your life needs this in it.

Anonymous - about that eyebrow hair - you are under fifty. I do not know about all men, but I am turning into my dad. Pubic hair is growing out of the outside of my ear while furry hair started creepying out from the inside. Finaly had to break down and let the haircutter trim the eyebrows. Another sign of my rapidly approaching decline.
