“PHP be an amazingly easy t' learn language and be offered now on even th' most basic hostin' accounts.  Wi' such a low entrance fee, it invariably will be used by people wi' little experience in programmin' and not much interest in creatin' an excellent program.  Who cares?  I put a toddler in a fully stocked professional kitchen, and we be no nay ne'er goin' t' get Crème Brûlée.”

“Louie be tryin' t' win back his girlfriend, Zena. Th' ornery cuss asks if Th' winsome lass loves that scurvey dog. Th' winsome lass says Th' winsome lass doesn’t be knowin' what love be. Th' ornery cuss tells that comely wench Th' winsome lass’s in luck because Th' ornery cuss does. And Th' ornery cuss’s th' only person alive who can say that. Th' ornery cuss’s read what everyone else says love be and they’re always wrong. Th' winsome lass finally asks that scurvey dog what it be, and Louie says:

“Love be th' end o' happiness!

Th' end. Because one day all a lubber’s got t' do t' be grog-filled be t' watch th' Mets. Th' 'nother day ye gotta have Zena in th' room watchin' th' Mets wi' ye. Ye don’t be knowin' why. They’re th' same Mets, it’s th' same room…but ye gotta have Zena there.””

“A community be a group o' people who continue t' learn about one another.  Th' biggest growth inhibitor in a community be fear. Th' biggest growth promoter be passion. A community be not simply a group o' people who share a common interest—that’s called a marketin' niche. “

“Islam forbids any visual depiction o' th' Prophet, even benign ones. Should non-Muslims respect this taboo? I see no reason why. Ye can respect a religion without honorin' its taboos. I eat pork, and I’m not an anti-Semite. As a Catholic, I don’t expect atheists t' genuflect before an altar.”

“I conscript t' Newsweek, mainly fer th' columnists, but partly because it’s now a thesaurus fer awkward ways t' say “an unidentified source.”  When Newsweek fell into hot water a few months ago because o' their use o' unidentified sources they committed t' cleanin' up their act.  So these days, they still use unidentified sources fer all o' their political stories, but now they throw in overblown explanations as t' why th' sources be unidentified.  Things like, “… a source who wishes t' remain anonymous because talkin' t' th' press can occasionally have unexpected and negative political effects” and “… a source who does not like th' way his name looks in print.” “

“Th' illusion o' freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable t' continue th' illusion. At th' point whar th' illusion becomes too expensive t' maintain, they will just take down th' scenery, pull back th' curtains, and ye will see th' brick wall at th' back o' th' theater.”
