There's always the ultimate source of wit and wisdom, Homer Simpson:

• If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your shortwave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.
• Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand!
• Kids, kids. As far as Daddy's concerned, you're both potential murderers.
• Kill my boss? Do I dare live out the American dream?
• Let us celebrate our agreement with the adding of chocolate to milk.
• All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer.
• All right, let's not panic. I'll make the money by selling one of my livers. I can get by with one.
• Bart, a woman is like beer. They look good, they smell good, and you'd step over your own mother just to get one!
• Facts are meaningless. You could use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true!
"If we get this right gents, my OJAR will look fantastic!!,

If you get it wrong your CRs will look bad!!"

CSgt: "...erm... no its not!"
