Strange way of looking at things...

By
Real Estate Agent with Royal LePage Prince George
If you're not familiar with the work of Steven Wright, he's the famous
 erudite scientist who once said: "I woke up one morning, and all of my stuff
 had been stolen and replaced by exact duplicates." His mind sees things
 differently than most of us do, to our amazement and amusement. Here are
 some of his gems:


 1 - I'd kill for a Nobel Peace Prize.


 2 - Borrow money from pessimists -- they don't expect it back.


 3 - Half the people you know are below average.


 4 - 99% of lawyers give the rest a bad name.


 5 - 82.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.


 6 - A conscience is what hurts when all your other parts feel so good.


 7 - A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.


 8 - If you want the rainbow, you got to put up with the rain.


 9 - All those who believe in psycho kinesis, raise my hand.


 10 - The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.


 11 - I almost had a psychic girlfriend... but she left me before we met.


 12 - OK, so what's the speed of dark?


 13 - How do you tell when you're out of invisible ink?


 14 - If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked
 something.


 15 - Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.


 16 - When everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.


 17 - Ambition is a poor excuse for not having enough sense to be lazy.


 18 - Hard work pays off in the future; laziness pays off now.


 19 - I intend to live forever... so far, so good.


 20 - If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?


 21 - Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.


 22 - What happens if you get scared half to death twice?


 23 - My mechanic told me, "I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your
 horn louder."


 24 - Why do psychics have to ask you for your name?


 25 - If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.


 26 - A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.


 27 - Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.


 28 - The hardness of the butter is proportional to the softness of the bread



 29 - To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is
 research.


 30 - The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.


 31 - The sooner you fall behind, the more time you'll have to catch up.


 32 - The colder the x-ray table, the more of your body is required to be on
 it.


 33 - Everyone has a photographic memory; some just don't have film.


 And an all time favorite-


 34 - If your car could travel at the speed of light, would your headlights
 work?

Dora, Steven Wright just like Gallagher (and myself just so you know) completely see the world differently than everyone else. Loved these and know that early bird-mouse with cheese one well. Everything is not absolute. I call it a cross wired brain. What some see, I completely see the opposite INSTANTLY.

I am a big fan of quotes, if you think about it, it's like wisdom in little bites, sometimes they can say so much more.

Some of these are really funny. What we won't say off the top of our heads.

If a car is travelling at the speed of light, there must be a real estate agent behind the wheel!

Thanks for the laughs,   Laurie

Dora, thanks for the "quotes".  I do plan on using a couple of them.

And while we are on the subject, I'd like to know; "What's the point of having a cake if you can't eat it"?
