Remembered quote from years ago

Fish are great to have around but they have limits. If you ask a fish detailed questions about philosophy or mathematics it will just look at you and say “bloop”. But if you ask the fish “Could you hum the first few bars of Roxy Music’s 1979 international smash hit single “Dance Away” for me?” the fish will respond with: “bloop bloop bloop bloop bloop bloop bloop bloop bloop bloop bloop bloop bloop bloop” which is both accurate and helpful.

        I hear it has automated red light cameras at each intersection.
        Hows bout Pittsburg? Never been to Pittsburg.

  1. I wish I could have a t-shirt with this quote on it. Although it might be a little long for a t-shirt, which might encourage people to read it, which would mean some people would linger, and okay, no.
    But still, I love this.
