Jot, What a great list! I almost fell out of my chair laughing at the triathlon quotation. I've never seen the Marx quotation on a t-shirt, but I've loved it for years. Thanks for taking time to share!Susan
My pleasure. I actually have more, but a lot of them are of a different vein.The "fruit flies like a banana" gets me every time because of the dual nature of the second part...that it can be both that a species of flies like bananas or that fruit is capable of flight.
