  • A good friend will bail you out of jail and lecture you about how you screwed up. A best friend will be sitting right next to you laughing about it saying "We really screwed up!"

General: Right. Do you have this man's legs?
Tiger-suited guy 1: What, a wooden leg?
General: No, a real live flesh leg! This man was perfectly fine while he slept, when someone or something, came and stole his leg.
Tiger-suited guy 1: Without waking him up?
General: (pause) (awkwardly) Yes.
Tiger-suited guy 1: I don't believe you.


If I were to suggest that between the Earth and Mars there is a china teapot revolving about the sun in an elliptical orbit, nobody would be able to disprove my assertion provided I were careful to add that the teapot is too small to be revealed even by our most powerful telescopes. But if I were to go on to say that, since my assertion cannot be disproved, it is an intolerable presumption on the part of human reason to doubt it, I should rightly be thought to be talking nonsense. If, however, the existence of such a teapot were affirmed in ancient books, taught as the sacred truth every Sunday, and instilled into the minds of children at school, hesitation to believe in its existence would become a mark of eccentricity and entitle the doubter to the attentions of the psychiatrist in an enlightened age or of the Inquisitor in an earlier time.

--(Russel's teapot)

God only exists if he is believed in. As long as people believe in him, he will exist. such as any god, in fact. He will only stop existing when no one at all believes in him, and even if he doesn't stop existing, no one will care anyway.

"I refuse to prove that I exist" says God, "for proof denies faith, and without faith, I am nothing." "Oh," says Man, "but the Babel Fish is a dead give-away, isn't it? It proves you exist, and so therefore you don't." "Oh, I hadn't thought of that." says God, who promptly vanishes in a puff of logic. "Oh, that was easy" says Man, and for an encore he goes on to prove that black is white and gets killed on the next zebra crossing.

I slept with faith and found a corpse in my arms on awakening; I drank and danced all night with doubt and found her a virgin in the morning.

Charlie Chan, he was a hell of a man
Went back to China with his shit in his hand.
He had 5 women up against a wall,
I'll bet you 5 dollars that he fucked them all.

He fucked them all night until his shit got sore.
He went to the doctor, the doctor said,
I'm sorry Charlie, your dick is dead.
Doctor, doctor, that can't be true!
Yes it is, Charlie. Your balls are too.

"What's up Doc?" is a very simple thing. It's only funny because it's in a situation. It was an all Bugs Bunny line. It wasn't funny. If you put it in human terms; you come home late one night from work, you walk up to the gate in the yard, you walk through the gate and up into the front room, the door is partly open and there's some guy shooting under your living room. So what do you do? You run if you have any sense, the least you can do is call the cops. But what if you come up and tap him on the shoulder and look over and say "What's up Doc?" You're interested in what he's doing. That's ridiculous. That's not what you say at a time like that. So that's why it's funny, I think. In other words it's asking a perfectly legitimate question in a perfectly illogical situation.

Chuck Jones


Most secret societies have the urge to remain secret (and also the urge to remain societies, otherwise the whole thing becomes pointless). The Buccaneers, however, were so busy all the time trying to stay alive and relatively safe that secrecy didn't seem that much of an urgency to them, mainly because they got tired of so many secrets. They didn't carry large neon signs around saying they existed, but they'd probably tell you who they were and what they did if you happened to come across one and asked. Unlike most secret societies, the Buccaneers weren't that hard to find. They were, however, hard to lose.

Patriotism, that's some messed up stuff. All of them people, especially Americans, saying they love their country. I figure that by "country" they either mean its culture and people or the land itself; but you can't love everyone in a whole country, and if you love the land you can as easily love anyone else's land. A country is just something humans make up so they can have something in common with the people who live close to them. America was created by Americans so they wouldn't have to be Canadians.

"No," said the dragon uncomfortably, "I most definitely would not."

  • To die completely, a person must not only forget but be forgotten, and he who is not forgotten is not dead.
  • There is nothing which at once affects a man so much and so little as his own death.
  • When I am dead I would rather people thought me better than I was instead of worse; but if they think me worse, I cannot help it and, if it matters at all, it will matter more to them than to me.

The one duty we owe to history is to rewrite it.

Oscar Wilde

It came a time in the entrails of History when Buccaneers thought it'd be easier for them to pass vital information between themselves if they just put it all in a book, made copies for each Buccaneer and updated it every year or so with the discoveries that they made in the meantime. For the first edition, the Alzar nominated the experts on each of the faery species to write extensive texts on the appearance, behaviour, distribution and aproach of each of their subjects. The entry on "Stymphalian Birds" happened to be attributed to an ancestor of Rhog Kironoko, who had spent several years living near a flock of these birds, breeding them, eating their flesh and eggs, he spoke their tongue and had his wife, children and best friends all killed by them in their mating season. While other experts made very long texts for the entries of the creatures they spent their lives with (which have proved useful for following generations of Buccaneers), to this day, the entry on the Stymphalian Birds says simply "Fuck them".

Some men love truth so much that they seem to be in continual fear lest she should catch cold on over-exposure.

--Samuel Butler

Any fool can tell the truth, but it requires a man of some sense to know how to lie well.

--Samuel Butler

The best liar is he who makes the smallest amount of lying go the longest way.

There is no sacrifice greater than someone else's.

Why do I have this imagination? It's the only one I've got!

Hard work is simply the refuge of people who have nothing whatever to do.

Hard work may pay off in the long run, but laziness always pays off right now!

A lie is simply a great story that someone ruined with the truth.

Belkar: ...True.

I love mankind - it's people I can't stand.

Charles Schultz

You know a generation fails epicly when their vampires sparkle.

Captain Morgan Monkeyzen: Animals know since they're born what they need to do to be happy in life, and they do it if you'll let'em. Humans don't have a tiny-ass clue, so they ruin it for everybody trying to find out.

Granny Weatherwax: Magic's far too important to be used for rulin' people.

Witches Abroad

  • His plan was simple - not because Angelo was a man of simple tastes, but because he was himself a simple man. Simple plans were all the plans he knew how to do.
  • In the world there were, to Ogyte's understanding, four types of person: there were those who said "Let's stay home and make dinner" and there were those who said "Let's go to the moon". To the latter, there were those who replied with "Don't be foolish, that's impossible" and there were those who replied with "How?"
  • Whenever Zofia had to refer to something which she knew had happened in the past but wasn't quite sure on which point of the past this was, she always said that it happened a million years ago. At least this way people realized she was joking, except for Ogyte, who believed her and never learnt to count to one million.

If a man would get hold of the public era, he must pay, marry, or fight.

Samuel Butler

Ethics is something dumb people invented to keep smart people from doing stuff.

Captain Morgan Monkeyzen

I don't have prejudice against meself. My father was a white and my mother was black. Them call me half-caste or whatever. Me don't deh pon nobody's side. Me don't deh pon the black man's side nor the white man's side. Me deh pon God's side, the one who create me and cause me to come from black and white.

Maester Aemon: What is honor compared to a woman's love? What is duty against the feel of a newborn son in your arms... or the memory of a brother's smile? Wind and words. Wind and words. We are only human, and the gods have fashioned us for love. That is our great glory, and our great tragedy.

Chris Rock:

  • People are starving all over the world, what do you mean, "red meat will kill you"? Don't eat no red meat? No, don't eat no green meat … if you're one of the chosen few people in the world lucky enough to get your hands on a steak, bite the shit out of it!
  • We got so much food in America we're allergic to food. Allergic to food! Hungry people ain't allergic to shit. You think anyone in Rwanda's got a fucking lactose intolerance?!

Stretching his hand out to catch the stars, he forgets the flowers at his feet.

I second that individualism!

Everybody's so busy wanting to be down with the gang. "I'm conservative", "I'm liberal", "I'm conservative". Bullshit! Be a fucking person! Lis-ten! Let it swirl around your head. Then form your opinion. No normal, decent person is one thing, okay? I've got some shit I'm conservative about, I've got some shit I'm liberal about. Crime, I'm conservative. Prostitution, I'm liberal!

The 12th Doctor: You mean, the me who wore a bow-tie? The me that thought a fez - an item of apparel resembling an upturned plant-pot - was "cool"? The me that used the word "cool"? Still, not to worry. Sophistication and timeless sartorial elegance have been restored.


Roy: I hired you to be the party tracker!!
Belkar: And don't you feel stupid now?!?
Roy: No, Belkar, I don't think it's physically possible for me to feel stupid after talking to you.

  • It is not necessary for the public to know whether I am joking or whether I am serious, just as it is not necessary for me to know it myself.
  • Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad.

What to do if you find yourself stuck with no hope of rescue: Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far.

"The Buccaneer's Guide to Faerie" is a 21st century-written book of the authory of the Buccaneer wizard biologist Captain Morgan Monkeypen, its title giving alusion to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The book teaches several ways for human beings to find and distinguish the species of supernatural beings that populate the Earth, how to protect oneself from them and, ultimately, how to become one. Since its first publishing in 2056, it has become widely popular amongst Mythology-lovers and Neopagans, often used as a grimoire, and has been an essential instrument upon the Faerie Revolution of the Third Millenium. Despite several more unfortunate circumstances which had eventually led to bloody wars, "The Buccaneer's Guide to Faerie" has proved itself to be of interest even to the faery world, becoming one of the top five best-selling post-Renaissance books for faeries and witches of all the world, along with titles such as "100 Ways to Cook Water-Nixie", "Touristic Spots of Atlantis", "Fifty Reasons Why Kidnapping Children Stops Global Warming", and "Twilight".

Nay, every lone tenement, castle, or mansion-house, which could boast of any antiquity had its bogle, its specter, or its knocker. The churches, churchyards, and crossroads were all haunted. Every green lane had its boulder-stone on which an apparition kept watch at night. Every common had its circle of fairies belonging to it. And there was scarcely a shepherd to be met with who had not seen a spirit!

Monotheism is, to me, a great simplification. I mean the Qabalah has a great multiplicity of gods, but at the very top of the Qabalic Tree of Life, you have this one sphere that is absolute God, the monad, something which is indivisible. All of the other gods, and indeed everything else in the universe, is a kind of emanation of that God. Now, that’s fine, but it's when you suggest that there is only that one God, at this kind of unreachable height above humanity, and there is nothing in between, you’re limiting and simplifying the thing. I tend to think of Paganism as a kind of alphabet, as a language, it's like all of the gods are letters in that language. They express nuances, shades of meaning or certain subtleties of ideas, whereas monotheism tends to just be one vowel and it's just something like 'oooooooo'. It's a monkey sound.

Guardians of the Galaxy Annual 001

Elf: (on humans) Their precious free will, capable of conquering mountains and oceans, only brings out one trait in them: covetousness. Everything in their lives boils down to it. To have more than they already do. Gold, women, land, titles, glory... men only live to possess. It is both a great strength and a terrible weakness that makes them conquerors as well as thieves. Iwolena says that is what makes them so great and fascinating. That their paradoxes drive them to create so many new things.

Captain Morgan Monkeyzen: Being a pirate's not about knowing how to swordfight. It's about knowing how to avoid swordfighting.

There are only two rules of tactics: never be without a plan, and never rely on it.

Magic the Gathering

Some pirates achieved immortality by great deeds of cruelty or derring-do. Some achieved immortality by amassing great wealth. But the captain had long ago decided that he would, on the whole, prefer to achieve immortality by not dying.

The Colour of Magic

Perhaps on the rare occasion, pursuing the right course demands an act of piracy... Piracy itself can be the right course.

Pirates of the Caribbean

Shireen: You were a pirate once.
Davos: No, I was never a pirate. I was a smuggler.
Shireen: What's the difference?

Davos: Your father lacks an appreciation of the finer points of bad behavior.

I think Bush sent that girl to Kobe's room. Bush sent that girl to Kobe's room, Bush sent that little boy to Michael Jackson's house. Bush killed Laci Peterson. Bush was fucking Paris Hilton in that video. All to get your mind off the war. Bush lied to me, they all lied to me: "We gotta go to Iraq because they're the most dangerous country on Earth. They're the most dangerous regime in the world." If they're so dangerous, how come it only took two weeks to take over the whole fucking country? Shit. Man, you couldn't take over Baltimore in two weeks.

Shiver Me Timbers[edit]

Shiver my timbers, shiver my soul
Yo oh heave ho
There are men whose hearts are as black as coal
Yo oh heave ho
And they sailed their ship cross the ocean's blue
A blood-thirsty captain and a cut-throat crew
It's as dark a tale as was ever told
Of the lust for treasure and the love of gold
Shiver my timbers, shiver my sides
Yo oh heave ho
There are hungers as strong as the wind and tides
Yo oh heave ho
And those buccaneers drowned their sins in rum
The devil himself would have to call them scum
Every man aboard would have killed his mate
For a bag of guineas or a piece of eight
A piece of eight
A piece of eight
Five, six, seven, eight
Hulla wacka hulla wacka something not right
Many wicked icky things gonna happen tonight
Hulla wacka hulla wacka sailor man beware
When the money in the ground there's murder in the air
Murder in the air
One more time now
Shiver my timbers, shiver my bones
Yo oh heave ho
There are secrets that sleep with old Davy Jones
Yo oh heave ho
When the mainsail's set and the anchor's weighed
There's no turning back from any quest that's laid
And when greed and villainy sail the sea
You can bet your boots there'll be treachery
Shiver my timbers, shiver my sails
Dead men tell no tales

On Friday morn when we set sail,
And our ship not far from land,
We did there spy a pretty, fair maid,
With comb and glass in hand.
And the raging sea did roar,
And the stormy winds did blow,
While we sailor boys were up aloft
And the landsmen down below.
Then up spoke the captain of our gallant ship,
And a brave young man was he--
"I've a wife and a child in Bristol Town,
And a widow I fear she'll be."
And the raging sea did roar,
And the stormy winds did blow,
While we sailor boys were up aloft
And the landsmen down below.
Then up spake the little cabin boy,
And a pretty little boy was he--
"I'm more grieved for my daddy and mam
Than you for your wife may be."
And the raging sea did roar,
And the stormy winds did blow,
While we sailor boys were up aloft
And the landsmen down below.
Three times 'round our gallant ship--
And three times 'round went she--
For want of a lifeboat, all went down
To cold ruin and watery death,
To the bottom of the sea.

  • In the beginning the universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.
  • It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination.

And even if you get shot by a stray bullet, you don't gotta go to no doctor to get it taken out, whoever shot you will take they bullet back! "I believe you have my property!"

Preston: You can't just kill people because you're asked to.
Deadpool: Uh yeah, I can. I'm a merc. It's what I do. You may have also heard I have a mouth?

Zhaan: My dear, I've kicked more ass than you've sat on.

2D: I don't know why we're always the target of such a large amount of violence, but y'know, we're cartoons. I can't think of a single cartoon off the top of my head who isn't under constant attack.
Noodle: Never a dull day!

When Life Gives You Lemons[edit]

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

When life gives you lemons, save the receipt.

When life gives you lemons, say thank you, you ungrateful bastards.

When life gives you lemons, make apple juice, then sit back and watch the world try to figure how you did it.

Who the hell posted this in here? I´m calling the authorities.
