Random quotes I've stumbled across lately:

While standing in the long food lines at the Hadar Shavuot retreat, between the silverware table and the food table, screaming at each other from across two lines:
Lev: "I'll trade you two forks for a spoon."
Desh: "Two forks and a sheep; that's my final offer."
Lev: "I don't have any sheep!"
Lev's girlfriend: "..."


From letters to The Economist, via Gene Weingarten's utterly hilarious chat today:

"SIR - Please do not ever mention George Bush. And Winston Churchill in the same sentence, even if you must break all the rules of grammar to do so."


Life imitating art: "[Air traffic control] came back and asked what my problem was. I told them I had one hand full of snake and the other hand full of plane. They cleared me in."


I think that's good for now. Happy Tuesday!
