"When this girl at the museum asked me whom I liked better, Monet or Manet, I said, 'I like mayonnaise.'"

"She just stared at me, so I said it again, louder. Then she left. I guess she went to try to find some mayonnaise for me."

-- Jack Handey. "Deepest Thoughts."

Hegel, Kant, Nietzsche? Feh.

Handey deals with the real problems of real people in a refreshingly straightforward manner. When will he finally get his due acclaim?

Likes mayonaisse? Then why doesn't he live in Belgium?

That reminds me of a quote from Ocean's 11:

Danny: And I always confuse Monet and Manet. Now which one married his mistress?
Tess: Monet.
Danny: Right, and then Manet had syphilis.
Tess: They also painted occasionally.
