Some others I've collected over the years (my all-time favorite
is at the end):

Editor -- someone who knows that "carpe diem"
does not mean "fish of the day."

"Politics is show business for ugly people" -- James Carville

"These are my opinions. If they were the Biblical
truth, your bushes would be burning" -- Randy Lander

In this world, it rains on the Just and the Unjust...
but the Unjust have the Just's umbrella.

"Calling Windows XP 'the most reliable Windows ever' is like
calling asparagus 'the most articulate vegetable ever'"
-- Dave Barry

"The first Halloween prank ever, played by a group of Druid
teenagers, was Stonehenge. (`HEY! You kids get those rocks
OFF my LAWN!')" -- Dave Barry

The Internet is a way to be annoyed by people you otherwise
never would have met.

Asking whether a computer can think is like asking whether a
submarine can swim

"The legal system prevents us from killing each other. The
etiquette system prevents us from driving each other crazy."
-- Miss Manners

"When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping.
Men invade another country." -- Elayne Boosler

"[Literary-minded] men choose _Hamlet_ because every man sees himself
as a disinherited monarch. Women choose _Alice_ [in Wonderland] because
every woman sees herself as the only reasonable creature among crazy
people who think they are disinherited monarchs."
-- Adam Gopnik, _The New Yorker_

You couldn't get a clue during clue mating season in a field full
of horny clues if you smeared your body with clue musk and did
the clue mating dance.
