Lucky Moran: Is this truly an act of war?
Otis Redwing: To some, it is.
Lucky: But seriously, how can a cartoon make so many people so angry?
Otis: Heresy. In a strict interpretation, any visual representation is heresy.
Lucky: But how can cartoonists be heretics if they're not Muslim? You can only be a heretic if you actually believe in that particular religion.
Otis: It's because the heresy IS on the people who follow that strain of Islam. It's heresy if they ALLOW the disrespect to continue. That's why the one guy was screaming, "The prophet is avenged" instead of "I just greased the heretics." By avenging the prophet, HE was no longer a heretic and thus could get gunned down in peace.
Lucky: You mean in a hail of gunfire.
Otis: TomAY-to, tomAH-to.

... so you're telling me you have no memory of what it was like when you went to college?
HELL no! I was stoned out of my mind most of the time!

Two women sitting at a table.
“… and so after they’ve got me all prepped for the
operation, right before they put the sedative in the IV to knock me out and
roll me in there, the doctor is going over the post-op instructions again, and
then she just pops out, ‘and no intercourse for two weeks’
“and I look over at my husband and I swear to God that man
has a look in his eyes that is saying, ‘The doctor is saying my WIFE can’t have
intercourse for two weeks!’
“I so wanted to punch him in the sack. But there was the doctor and these prep
nurses all around me.”
The woman’s friend said.
“You should have said something.
One of them would’ve probably punched him in the sack for you.”
