"We can't bust heads like we used to, but we have our ways. One trick is to tell 'em stories that don't go anywhere - like the time I caught the ferry over to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe, so, I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. Give me five bees for a quarter, you'd say.
Now where were we? Oh yeah: the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones."

"Nothing in Life is worth doing half-assed." --me, 1995ish.

My friend Kari thought this was way more useful/inspiring than most of the stuff I say. The trouble is that I was probably ripping some other quotable person off, and I have no idea who I was quoting. Anyhow. Thank you, and keep reaching for the stairs....

"As an upholsterer, I had a one legged client who had issues with his personal fart catcher.
I mad his seat and he biatched about it, and would not pay me.
So I visited him and asked what the problem was.
He was telling me all about his ass pain and I hoisted up his good leg and pulled the fart catcher out and said, "Well, then. Good day to you, sir", and left.
Bastard was on the floor rolling about screaming he would sue me.
Fark him.
I did a tuck and roll and buttons and head to head tacks and he was biatching about it?
Fark him, and would not assist again..."

I don't know why, but this is one of the best posts I ever saw on Fark.
