8/10

I like it because it's making fun of something that just happened. That's why I love "Best Week Ever" so much.
For the life of me, I cannot figure out how a man can love a woman when a woman is just a screaming clear area with a wig on and a large middle where the smells come from.

Graven is correct.  In "Amadeus" whenever the Emperor of Austria (played with a brilliant hilarity by Jeffrey "Ed Rooney" Jones) had made a decision, (even when it made no sense, and flew in the face of all logic and reason presented to him) he simply said "There it is" and the discussion was over.  His subjects knew it must be done.

I guess it's some arrogant statement about how I wish people would respond to my posts....heh heh
Well.  There it is.

You mean Febo is correct.

You were correct because every time the Emperor said it, it was something of a non-sequitor, so, "I don't get it" is the correct reaction! :wink:

Cute, but it sounds a lot like a bumper sticker . . . 4/10.

Gosh, I'm torn.  Points for Lewis Carroll, but negative points for choosing a weakish Carroll quote in a sea of strong ones.

I'm going to go with 5/10.

8/10, but as someone said already (I think) it contradicts itself. Don't know if thats kind of the idea though :)

I have no idea who the guy is who said/wrote my quote, please tell me. (a senator or someone?)

faugh.  You just don't get it.  You probably haven't even read the Hunting of the Snark.

And as for yours... first of all, the "signature" signature shows a blatant and disgusting disregard for meta-data, and so much the worse if it's meant to be ironic.  And the Sagan quote is cute (everyone loves paradox and heaven forfend that I should insult the great prophet Carl), but is fundamentally trite.  

4/10

See?  I can be generous.
