We used to have one of these long ago run by... the poster who um, yes. Well it's better not to mention her. [Tear]

Often when I see particularly funny/poignant/profound bits in posts, I cut and paste them into a file to use as possible .sigs (with acknowledgement, of course).

Therefore I thought I'd start this thread for contributions from around the board of worthy sayings. The quote that prompted this thread:

quote:
jedijudy:
I don't need an AK47. I am a Mom, and I know how to give "the look".

Another one at random (I have a very large number)...

quote:
Kenwritez:
Damn! My extra taco at lunch snatched the Unimix out of the mouths of some starving Sudanese. Bad me. Maybe I'll console myself with a handful of pretzels and kill off some Bangladeshis. If I'm really lucky, that pepperoni pizza for dinner can take down most of India.

I didn't take down the names of threads they appeared, but iirc jj's is from the Cowboys and Indians thread and Ken's from an old one in Purgatory about the evils of fat Christians.

This I think from the same thread as Ken's:
quote:
jugular:
I like being fat. I am happy being fat. In fact, I feel called to fatness. Being a lardass has been a very important part of my faith journey. If I didn't cry at Little Athletics because I kept coming last, Mum would never have sent me to Sunday School. Because I'm fat people do not perceive me as threatening. Women can be open and honest without thinking I want to root them. When I laugh, my whole body has a good time.

Does no-one grazing on the threads think, 'Oh! That is so cool! My Shipmates are so witty, clever, bizarre, intelligent (choose which applies). I'm going to preserve wot they said forever...'

[Angel]


Next up we have one of my favourite posters:


~~~ QUOTES FOR ALL SEASONS by duchess ~~~


Dude, you know exactly what I meant in my clear way of speaking.


Throw a shrimp on the barbie and burn it baby.


Magic 8 ball sez: Eye candy does not cut it, chicky.


I want to kick his a*& in Christian love.


Magic 8 Ball Sez: Spank.


I intend to try to keep the Dorian Grey thing going on until I snag me a nice young hot thang. [Ed. note: [Eek!] ]


Bite me. I say that dripping with Christian Charity.


Wow. Somebody's got crushy-poo.


I scare all the single men away in my church. ... If I looked more like Pamela Anderson, they might work through their fear.


I love him as my brother in Christ but I seriously long to kick his a**.


.....


Steel yourself friends, Magic 8 ball season is not far off:
"I am trying to hold off since not only is it time consuiming, but also I try to keep that spirit reeled in till holiday shopping time, when I can use it more freely."

Good to see this thread back again ( [Tear] )

There are so many quotes and sig's worthy of mention. One sig that always used to make me smile, forgive me I forget which shipmate it is: 'I came, I saw, I made notes in the margin'.

Here are three quotations that I particularly like (I have others):

Sixteen hours of anti-Christian, anti-Semitic, proto-Nazi, racialist, nationalist, fatalist, elitist, neo-pagan, pompous, screaming, gibbering, incestuous, violent, glorious, wierdness; belted out in cod-medieval alliterative German by great singers, unfit for any other music, specially bred for the purpose by Knights Templar genetic engineers in secret underground fortresses....
That's ken describing the Ring Cycle

Welsh is the language that wants to be Gaelic when it grows up. It is also the only language where "sheep farmer" and "pimp" are the same word. The only thing the Welsh have got right is their way of dealing with English holiday homes.
From Lurker (a Scot)

This is my blood of the new covenant, shed for you and for many, so that you can fart about doing whatever you like and ignore what I've been banging on about for the last three years, but that's alright, really, no, that's fine. Don't mind me.

Nothing makes me laugh harder, think longer, study more nor entertain me like the Ship. Alas, my "Ship" file is only filled with real names, addresses, phone numbers, recipes, song links, etc. No quotes.

I feel so ashamed. Coot, from this day forward, when I read a brilliantly executed, far-fetched or nonsensical comment from a Shipmate, it's going to be copied and saved and shared.

This is how to answer the brainless morons like Priest, who Smudgie was responding to, with a well argued case, rather than just rudeness.

Ah, Eigon, yes, I have that one of ken's too. lol [Overused] (Though I have 'giant' where you have 'great').


~~~And now some put downs~~~
(The understated favoured over the frontal assault)

quote:
babybear on being on-topic in answer to someone in Hell:

We have asked the question. We have answered the question. The answer is that you are talking a load of bollox.

best wishes and big hugs,

bb

"Do be a good little weenie and stick with the program." Erin


"Oh boo-fucking-hoo, (Name Removed). Cry me a river." paigeb.


"Thank you for sharing. Now, who are you again?" Erin.


"...feel free to address your concerns to your waste paper bin. It'll care more than me." Sarkycow.


"dozy airheaded meringue-wearing slappers" Norman the Organ, Defn. of a Bride.


"All the warmth and emotion of a moribund trout trapped in a sandbag." Diapason.


"Trust me, dear heart, homosexuality is not the doctrine of the incarnation and Lambeth 98 was not Nicea." Professor Yaffle, now Callan.


"Sometimes, there is a groundswell of consensus that someone's posts are pure and unadulterated crap, in content, presentation or both, and that it's time they knew it." Cranmer’s Baggage.


"I am impressed that I have managed to post "so many liturgical solecisms in one post". I reward myself with a gold star." daisymay

.


And my newest addition:

"Word has it that many Pagan priestesses also breathed as part of their rituals, and so I'm sure you will endeavor to stop doing so at your next service.)"
Mertseger, for those such as priest concerned with the adoption of pagan rituals into xtian ones.


[My quotes file is not systematic nor regular, so if you've said cool and/or witty and/or outrageous things which are absent from it, that isn't a reflection of their quality or my appraisal of it - just that I either didn't see 'em or wasn't very motivated about cutting and pasting at the time!

Father Gregory posted this on the "How have Liberals contributed to Christianity?"--

Liberals(I have usually found ... assuming I could recognise one if I saw one) are people ... and being people, they generally have something good to contribute.

Then, minutes later, posted this on "How have Evangelicals contributed to Christianity?"--

And I already have to get up at 6.15 if I'm cycling to work - there is no way on earth I'm going to get up an hour earlier so I can drink a glass of warm water with lemon juice (goes straight to the bowels, apparently - not sure what it does there) and do an exercise to find my emotional core before breakfast. I don't have an emotional core at 5.30 am.

A couple from my quotes file:

"Sometimes the message of the Holy Spirit to those who have ears to hear is that the thing they are being told is a load of rubbish and they would be better off in the pub." - Amos

" Mmmm? Religious disagreements? Eh? Boys playing theological football in the park, deacons for goalposts? Mm? Marvellous. Oh no! The ball's gone near the road! Screech of breaks - splat! Mummy mummy, that boy did it! Take that you horrid Catholic. Mmmm? Marvellous." - Dyfrig

A quote I like is
quote:
A man stands on a mountain on a planet orbiting a medium star. The Star orbits the center of a galaxey. The galaxey is one of many. And the man proclams himself greater than God
Another one I like is
quote:
It is not the number of people at a funeral but the number of tears.

The day of my funeral, Kelly's going to come forward and place a single rose on my casket. Someone will ask what I meant to her, and she'll answer, "He taught me 'f*ck me running.'"

It's legacies like this that are truly priceless. [Eek!]

We had a great thread called "Things yout therapist would never tell you" that collected a lot of classics. My favorite was from Cusanus:

Mousethief, you apparently met one of the top ten contenders for the title of Thickest Racist of the Year. I wouldn't worry about him pouring petrol through your letter box. He'll probably pour it into his A:drive and try to email it to you.

Oh, admire my sig while you are here, cos in a couple of days it's going to be replaced by a really good quote about postmodernism that I have to look up when I get that library book back.

me sig:
"The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity."

Although I'd usually go for the "laughed so hard I bust a gut" kind of quote for this thread, Timothy the Obscure just posted this on the US election thread in Purgatory, and it had me nodding so hard my head nearly rolled off my neck:

"I certainly agree that Democrats, and the left in general (to the extent one can characterize the post-Clinton Democrats as "left") have made a terrible mistake in allowing the right to act as if it held trademark rights on the language of morality. People tell pollsters they vote on the basis of "moral values" which seems to mean nothing more than "other people's sex lives." I vote on the basis of moral values too: the moral value of social and economic equality; the moral value of caring for the sick; the moral value of not bombing civilians (or anyone else if you can help it); the moral value of not allowing corporations to exploit and rob workers and communities; the moral value of leaving a livable planet for our grandchildren. These are in no way less serious "moral values" than the sexual virtues that conservatives make so much of (indeed, I consider them far more morally serious and substantive than personal chastity). All the liberals I know are liberals because they believe liberalism to be a morally superior philosophy, and for many of them, that conviction stems from religious belief (Christian or otherwise). We need to say that louder."

(In honor of Wood's retirement)

Way back when I first joined the Ship, I copied down something Wood had in his sig. I thought it was the most repsectful phrasing of disagreement that I had ever seen, and really attracted me to the site. Here it is, straight form my quote wall:

quote:
I've thought about it. I know what I am talking about. I am aware of the literature. I completely understand what you are saying. My opinion is different.I'll credit you with the intelligence to work out what that means for yourself.
