"...the point of public relations slogans like "Support Our Troops" is that they don't mean anything [...] that's the whole point of good propaganda. You want to create a slogan that nobody is gonna be against and I suppose everybody will be for, because nobody knows what it means, because it doesn't mean anything.

- Revenge of the Nerds (best movie ever!)

"It is the idea that people living close to nature tend to be noble. It's seeing all those sunsets that does it. You can watch a sunset and then go off and set fire to your neighbor's teepee. Living close to nature is wonderful for your mental health."

My actual yearbook quote, which was left unprinted by a yearbook editor who blamed me for tearing some signs off a wall (which I didn't do, amazingly enough), was "never been dumped/cause I'm known the most mackinest/never been jumped, cause I'm known the most packingest" from Paul's Boutique, which years later....

Andrew said...

I have to admit that I actually did use Radiohead for my quote. I don't know why I overlooked Paul's Boutique as a source of inspiration. I guess youth really is wasted on the young. Sigh.

CF Edley said...

Jesus. The only true thing about a bostonian really is that they are from boston. Good point. Point taken.

Andrew said...

Edley, are you really from Boston? I based the quotes purely on the little photos. Guess I hit the nail on the head. Go Pats!


my quote was "wait 3 minutes before restarting air conditioner" -Emerson Quiet Cool

CF Edley said...

jordan went to quiet school ?

Andrew said...

Yeah. That's why he's so soft spoken. I went to drunk school. That's why my punctuation is inconsistent.
