Quotes, Creeds, And Other Funny Sayings

Recommended Posts

Okay, so it's been a few weeks/months since we had a thread for quotes so...

 

Let's try a new one... any funny words to share on specific, non-political and/or non-religion topics, professional groups of people, etc... just keep it clean and keep in mind that while taking a "shot across the bow" at politics itself is okay, don't start debates please.

 

---

 

Engineering/Engineers:

 

 "It ultimately falls to every engineer to design a simpler system faster than the universe can design a better idiot, so far, the universe is winning" - Engineers Creed [unofficial]

 

 "The concept of engineering is two fold, not to fold" - Uncredited

 

Programming/Programmers:

 

 "There are 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary, and those who don't" - Uncredited adage

 

Politicians (Keep it friendly please)

 

Generalized:

 

 "Reader, suppose you were an idiot.  And suppose you were a member of Congress, but I repeat myself" - Mark Twain

 

 "Tact is the ability to tell someone to 'Go to Hell' in such a way that they look forward to the trip." - Winston Churchill

 

Specific:

-Al Gore (Former U.S. Vice-President) talking with Jay Leno

Jay Leno: "How do you feel being treated like a movie star?" 

Gore: "Well, it's not all all easy. For example, I'm in this huge feud with Lindsay Lohan now."
Leno: "Really? Can you give us a little more?"
Gore: "No, she knows what she did."

 

- Dan Quayle

Too many to select just one...
