Sorry about all that. We meant well, we swear. OK, some of us meant well. Anyway, we did the best we could...

Where the hell is the Thomas Edison quote?

Don't take the blue pill.

Pay yourself first.

My progeny, I have gone to great pains to make sure to record this, the meaning of life and my final legacy, on 8-track to cement my placement in the hall of greatness alongside my muses Air Supply and Neil Diamond and ensure my wisdom can be passed down among the ages...

There are much better things to spend five bucks a month on.

"This is just a recording. I can't give you any new information."

(inspired by Homer's memory speaking to him in The Simpsons)

basemetal: It would be that sex tape I made with your mom.

2012-10-11 12:15:44 AM  
How'd that vote for Romney work out for you, peasant? Oh, and I think there's some nice filth over there.

You are receiving this broadcast as a dream. We are transmitting the year 1-9-9-9. You are receiving this broadcast for all the events you are seeing. Our technology has not developed a transmitter strong enough to reach your conscious state of awareness, but this is not a dream. You are seeing what is actually occurring,

It is our generation who decided that 'fairness' is more important than freedom, that security is more important than liberty, and that the ideas of our Founding Fathers were too antiquated, so I hope you enjoy being a slave to the Government. I certainly don't.

I'd have Gilbert Gottfried read Obama's New Hampshire concession speech from 2008.

A set of coordinates, a time and date, and a message urging that the sacrifice must be made lest Cthulu awaken.

The chair is against the wall.

John has a long mustache.
2012-10-11 12:20:10 AM  
How did that voting for Romney work out?
2012-10-11 12:20:34 AM  
that damn dirty ape mitt romney blew it all up. he destroyed us all while chanting "it is a glorious afterlife i go too", after nuking the other side of the world and then their retaliation made nuclear vapor of him.

thanks for all the fish

2012-10-11 12:20:42 AM  
"We're sorry. We're so very, very sorry. We can't ask you to forgive us, but please try to understand. It might be extremely important that you do."

Always pick your own cotton.

Be honest with your wife. Be faithful to your mistress. Religion is bunk. Ride a motorcycle. The Cubs still suck.

"I hear its amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space with the tuning fork does a raw blink on Hara Kiri Rock. I need scissors! Sixty-one!"

I voted for the other guy.

I don't know if you are a troll or not. I don't really bother trying to figure that out anymore.
2012-10-11 12:22:51 AM  
YOU don't get something for nothing. You can't have freedom for free. You won't get wise with the sleep still in your eyes, no matter what your dream might beeeeeeeeeee. oh!
2012-10-11 12:24:05 AM  
It's an awfully short trip.

Don't forget to have fun.
2012-10-11 12:25:06 AM  
I'm sorry we farked up nature in favor of 5x as much living space as we needed and rampant consumerism. I hope there are still some national and state parks left to enjoy.
2012-10-11 12:25:06 AM  
Let's all get off of this rock before something really bad happens. Fund and/or participate in your local space program and diplomatic relationships with the other guys so the human race can survive? Meh? Right? I'm trying to be optimistic here. Oh who am I kidding. Screw whoever you please, throw your religious beliefs out the window and enjoy whatever comes your way. Be at peace.

/emphasis on the whole "peace" thing. don't do stupid shiat like reading too many Jane Austen novels or playing excessive Call of Duty games :)
2012-10-11 12:25:37 AM  
EE doesn't stand for just 1 person.
2012-10-11 12:26:17 AM  
Something to confuse people, hopefully as ridiculous as possible.

Guys, I'd never vote for the guy in a million years. But Romney is just not that bad, and it makes you look like thoughtless zealots to say so.

For fark's sake, we lived through W. He's the apocalypse president.

Message for future:

We apologize for the inconvenience.
2012-10-11 12:31:17 AM  
wear sunscreen, don't drink the water
2012-10-11 12:32:04 AM  
"Holy shiat, have you heard how much 'Blunderbuss' rocks?" That's what I've been telling my contemporary friends, but they don't listen. Hopefully people in the future pay more attention to me.

Fight the system at a young age, because NO ONE will look at your school permanment record in adulthood, not even your future college.
2012-10-11 12:33:44 AM  
i would leave them the tune i recorded on a cassette tape 25 years ago

because it will sound as good in the future as it does now or did then.

It would be the list of words that gets you on the homeland security watch list, so when the police department's Skynet drone flies overhead and reads it, the poor jerk who finds the list is arrested.

"The Army of the Twelve Monkeys--they're the ones who are going to do it. I can't do anything more. The police are watching me."

I'd leave a picture of the crocoduck, with no explanation whatsoever.
