The Quotes That Never Were

I've messed with the English language many times before on this blog. Well, today I'm messing with it in the form of famous movie quotes. Why, you ask? Why do I do anything I do? (That's not a rhetorical question; I really want to know.)

I suspect others have come up with similar variations on some of the following, but as they say: Imitation is the sincerest form of laziness.
  • "What we have here is a failure to—What I'm trying to say is we're having trouble—Are you even listening to me?"
  • "Mama always said life was like a box of chocolates: pretty sweet, although nutty at times, and if you don't keep trying new things, it gets stale."
  • "With great power comes ginormous electric bills."
  • "The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was to convince the world its card was the eight of clubs."
  • "All work and no play make Jack repeat himself."
  • "I love the smell of napalm in the morning. In the afternoon, I prefer a really strong vinegar. At night, a burning sulfur is simply divine."
  • "The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club. I'm already breaking that rule. I am Jack's raging hypocrisy."
  • "You know how to whistle, don't you? You just put your lips together and blow. But not all the way together, and you also have to do this thing with your tongue."
I hope you found these funny. But funny how, I mean funny like a clown? I make you laugh, I'm here to amuse you?

Yes. Yes I am.


  1. Speaking of clowns, you reminded me of the oldie.

    What did one cannibal say to the other cannibal after they ate a clown?











    Does this taste funny to you?

    Sorry. I couldn't help it.

    1. Sorry, I just can't believe a cannibal would say "S C R O L L D O W N." Unless it's some sort of robot cannibal with a touch-screen interface. But wait, that would mean the clown would also be a robot. And really, the only thing I acn think of scarier than a robot clown is whatever would eat a robot clown. Thank you so much for the nightmares, Mr. Bates.

    1. Thanks, Alex. (You know, I thought that one was the most likely to have been done before. Perhaps not.)
