This quote can be interpreted two ways. For example, if you can't tell if it's a man or a woman, should you "fuck it" or fuck it? :?

We are made to travel life's journey hand in hand. There is someone ready to grasp your hand today. And someone hoping you will take theirs.

Remember to hang on to one another! :lol:

"Get it while you can."

Not sure who said or wrote it originally but it's something I live by, because it won't always be there, so if you haven't already, buy that limited edition Freak Out! before it's too late!

Quentin:

Well, folks
As you can see for yourself
The way this CLOCK over here
is BEHAVING
TIME IS AN AFFLICTION ...

This may be cause for alarm
Among a portion of you, as
From a certain experience
I tend to proclaim . . .
THE EONS ARE CLOSING!

[concerned mutterings from all in attendance]

Quentin:

Now what does this mean, precisely
To the layman?
Simply this:
MOMENTARILY, THE NEED FOR
THE CONSTRUCTION OF
NEW LIGHT WILL NO LONGER EXIST!

Of course, some of you will say:
"Who is HE to tell me from this LIGHT?"
But, in all seriousness, ladies and gentlemen
A quick glance at the erratic behavior
Of the large, precision-built
TIME-DELINEATING APPARATUS beside me
Will show that it is perhaps
Only a few moments now!
Just look how funny it's
Going around there!
Personally, I find mechanical behavior of this nature
To be Highly SUSPICIOUS!
When such a device
Doesn't go NORMAL
The implications of such a behavior
BODES NOT WELL!
And, quite naturally, ladies and gentlemen
When the mechanism in question
Is entrusted with the task of
The delineation of
TIME ITSELF ...
And If such a mechanism goes
ON THE BUM...
OR THE FRITZ...
Well
It spells TROUBLE!

Lady #1:

Make your checks payable to
The GREATEST PHILOSTOPHER known to MANKIND ...

Lady #2:

QUENTIN ROBERT DE NAMELAND!

Both Ladies: (singing)

Who is making
Those New Brown Clouds
Who is making
Those clouds these days?
Who is making
Those New Brown Clouds?
If you ask a philostopher
He'll see that you pays!

Quentin:

THANK YOU ... AND CALL AGAIN!

Greggery takes leave of the Therapeutic Assembly, only to discover the mysterious dust storm is still in progress...

Greggery: (miffed)

That geek has ripped me off!

Narrator: (confidentially to Greggery)

Perhaps it's a trend...
