Something to get in the Christmas mood.  An oldie but goodie.
“Most gods throw dice, but Fate plays chess, and you don’t find out until too late that he’s been playing with two queens all along”.  Terry Pratchett.

During filming of Airplane, Leslie Nielsen used a whoopee cushion to keep the cast off-balance. Hays said that Nielsen "played that thing like a maestro"

Tallulah Bankhead: "I'll come and make love to you at five o'clock. If I'm late, start without me."

"When all other trusts fail, turn to Flashman." — Abraham Lincoln.

"I have enjoyed very warm relations with my two husbands."
"With your eyes closed?"
"That helped."  Lauren Bacall

Master Chiefs are sneaky, dastardly, and snarky miscreants who thrive on the tears of Ensigns and belly dancers.   Admiral Gerry Bogan.

It's also what is in the fake sausage egg and cheese being sold at Dunkin' Donuts.  Eat real meat boys, not soylent green.   8)

"I'll just wait here for the kids to come-out for a swim. If they see me, they'll think I'm just the float".  :uglystupid2:  Alligators have one of the smallest brains in Nature.

A selfie from Curiosity (landed on Mars Aug 2012!) taken in front of 'Mont Mercou,' a rock formation that’s 20ft (6m) tall," JPL posted, "It's made up of 60 images from my MAHLI camera and 11 images from my Mastcam. Look close enough to spot a new drill hole – my 30th sample to date."
