I like to water them with ice cubes.” “I saw a bank that said ‘24 Hour Banking,’ but I don’t have that much time.”

Then he said, ‘I’m sorry, I thought you were someone else.’ I said, ‘I am.’” “I like to use ‘I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter’ on my toast in the morning, because sometimes when I eat breakfast, I like to be incredulous.

The good news is it skips a generation. So, if I’m lucky, my kids will kill themselves.”
