Caption: I just looked at our books. We could go into the red this month. The red. Calm down. I haven't been unprofitable since I was seven. Even my business loaning lunch money to poor 4th graders was profitable. I charged 12 percent, plus an origination fee. There's not time to reminisce about the glory days! Very bad man.

Caption: New novel? Yeah … but it needs a title. All the men in town loved Wanda. They loved Wanda so much, a dance was made in her honor. It was called "The Wanda" and all the men danced it through the countryside … But some of the men became disoriented, dizzy and confused, and many of them never returned. But to everyone's relief, a lucky few finally found their way back to town. How about this title - "Somebody stop me from writing this drivel." Not bad, but I prefer - "Not all those who Wanda are lost."

Caption: Armstrong, I'm not qualified to give you dating advice. When it comes to that stuff, I'm the worst. Because Randy's advice is as good as it gets. There's nothing to improve on, so it's a bad investment. But if someone gives me glaringly bad advice, I can easily spot the errors, correct them, and compile it all into a best-selling advice book. Dating tip #1: Dating is not an investment. Beautiful. Keep 'em coming.

Since it happened in 2001, that comes out to $298 when you factor in compound interest and opportunity cost. Very bad man.

Image Number: 126136
Caption: I'm reading a book called "Leviathan Wakes." It tells a story from the perspective of two different protagonists. Dr. Noodle. Neither knows just how much their stores are connected. It's like I've always thought: what if I'm not the only protagonist in my own life? What if there's somebody out there who's living the other half of my story? What if we're both on separate roads that are fated to converge at some pivotal, all-important moment? And what if I don't recognize this person's significance to my life and so we fail to connect?! I still think boring everyone you meet with your whole life story is a bad idea. But if I don't recognize their significance, they might recognize mine.

Caption: If you had awful, disgusting fish-breath, would you want someone to tell you? Nice try, amateur. But you're talking to the woman who wrote "The Art Of The Insult." It was a best-seller in 1941. You just quoted chapter 48, paragraph 7: "The Plausibly Deniable IF-sult." Yeah. Right, you made that up. Nice try. Chapter 42: "Sarcastic Dismiss-sult."

Caption: I notice you ain't bought my new cd yet. I thought you was supposed to be my friend, Big L. Dang. You know what, Clyde? You're absolutely right. I mean, that'd be just as bad as if, hypothetically speaking, I had written five books over the last few years ... including a new on called "Run! Vampires, Werewolves, the One That Got Away; and Other Demons ... " And you didn't buy any of them. Hypothetically speaking. Glad you agree. I accept cash, cash or cash. Thug 4 life. Dawn. By Butler.
