I always enjoyed reading peoples signatures as well as searching for food quotes....what are some of your favorites?


I'll start...one of my favorites as you might have seen before is:


“You know that just before that first Thanksgiving dinner there was one wise, old Native American woman saying,
“Don’t feed them. If you feed them, they’ll never leave.” –Dylan Brody

about vegetarian food: that's not food! that's what food eats!!!

i'd rather have a bottle in front of me instead of a frontal lobotomy.

Oh gosh, I forgot how much I loved Monty Python...thanks so much for posting it. I'm off to YouTube to look for more...maybe the one with the dead parrot in the pet shop.

lol, lobo. did they mean ter-maters, or mothers, or matters?

btw karen, i can't count how many times i've had to explain why a norwegian blue parrot is funny.

parrots are tropical for the most part; norway isn't exactly tropical, therefore a parrot from they couldn't exist. if it did it would be blue because it's freezing cold.

ok, as before (and how most british cerebral comedy works), it isn't funny anymore once you explain it.

apparently, the plumage doesn't enter into it.

BT, I just went to watch the bit about the Norwegian blue parrot (lovely plumage, eh?) and it's every bit as funny as I remembered it. Yes, you're so right.

Sorry for the OT... here is a joke I found very funny

So there's this fella with a parrot. And this parrot swears like a sailor - I mean he's a pistol. He can swear for 5 minutes straight without repeating himself. Trouble is, the guy who owns him is a quiet, conservative type, and this bird's fowl mouth is driving him crazy.

One day, it gets to be too much, so the guy grabs the bird by the throat, shakes him really hard, and yells, "QUIT IT!". But this just makes the bird mad and he swears more than ever. Then the guy gets mad and says, "OK for you!" and locks the bird in a kitchen cabinet. This really aggravates the bird and he claws and scratches, and when the guy finally lets him out, the bird cuts loose with a stream of invective that would make a veteran sailor blush.

At that point, the guy is so mad that he throws the bird into the freezer. For the first few seconds there is a terrible din. The bird kicks and claws and thrashes. Then it suddenly gets_very_quiet.

At first the guy just waits, but then he starts to think that the bird may be hurt. After a couple of minutes of silence, he's so worried that he opens up the freezer door. The bird calmly climbs onto the man's out-stretched arm and says, "Awfully sorry about the trouble I gave you. I'll do my best to improve my vocabulary from now on.".

The man is astounded. He can't understand the transformation that has come over the parrot. Then the parrot says, "By the way, pardon me for asking, but what did the chicken do?".
