What are your favorite quotes that give you a laugh?

They do not necessarily have to be intentionally funny, as long as they make you chuckle.

And all forms of humor welcome. It can be dry humor, satirical, sardonic, dark, etc..

Well, this one wasn't really meant to be funny, but when I saw it I laughed.

"History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it"
- Winston Churchill

He said something else that I liked, but I don't recall what the whole quote was. I think it was something like...

"Any man under 30 who is not a liberal has no heart. Any man over 30 who is not a conservative has no brain."

Come on, that's funny :P

i don't know if this made me laugh because of what it says or because it matches my opinion on drinking so perfectly.

One reason I don't drink is that I want to know when I am having a good time.

If it's true that our species is alone in the universe, then I'd have to say that the universe aimed rather low and settled for very little.
George Carlin (1937 - 2008)

The best minds are not in government. If any were, business would hire them away.
Ronald Reagan (1911 - 2004)

Everyone is a genius at least once a year. The real geniuses simply have their bright ideas closer together.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742 - 1799)

I hate life, I hate death and everything in between just doesn't interest me.
Chris Rapier

Being an icon is overblown. Remember, an icon is moved by a mouse....William Shatner.

N from Homer Simpson-
You can't keep blaming yourself. Just blame yourself once and move on.

The answers to life's problems ain't at the bottom of a bottle. They're on T.V.

What's the point of going out when you're gonna end up back here anyway.

The three little sentences that'll get you through life-

#2- Oh, good idea, Boss.
#3- It was like that when I got here.

"Somebody may beat me, but they are going to have to bleed to do it"-Steve Prefontaine

Love that quote

also this one by Socrates always makes me smile.

"True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing. And in knowing that you know nothing, that makes you the smartest of all. As for me, all I know is that I know nothing."-Socrates
