a character in a crime novel I read recently....


"That is such a clit car"

"Clit car?"

"Yeah, every cunt has one"

Here's a short monologue from Tropic Thunder. I haven't seen the movie, yet I've started using this every time someone say something stupid. Online or offline, doesn't matter. Everybody knows you never go full retard.  ;D

Think about it a minute.

She started telling me this when I was a kid. Hate to admit it, but it took me awhile to unravel what she was telling me.

"I am trying to decide if this horse is stupid, or pretending to be stupid."

"Horse says you are a spirit walker. A man who's been to the other side and returned. A man who cannot be killed in battle. *pause* Horse is definitely stupid."
