"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the wine I drink, I feel shame! Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the vineyards and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this wine, they might be out of work, and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, It is better that I drink this wine and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver" – Jack Handey

GUEST CORNER: "Deep Thoughts... by Jack Handey"--- I think the mistake a lot of us make is thinking the state-appointed shrink is our friend.
In his book Fuzzy Memories, Jack Handey writes: There used to be this bully who would demand my lunch money every day. Since I was smaller, I would give it to him. Then I decided to fight back. I started taking karate lessons. But then the karate lesson guy said I had to start paying him five dollars a lesson. So I just went back to paying the bully. Too many people feel it is easier just to pay the bully than it is to learn how to defeat him.
Here is my Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey moment for Tuesday! Why do we let the ones who reject us affect us???
DEEP THOUGHTS by Jack Handey "It's funny that pirates were always going around searching for treasure, and they never realized that the real treasure was the fond memories they were creating."

And now Deep Thoughts, by Jack Handey. "I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it."
FUNNY QUOTES. There's no half-singing in the shower, you're either a rock star or an opera diva. Josh Groban I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant. Robert McCloskey I just broke up with someone and the last thing she said to me was "You'll never find anyone like me again!" I'm thinking, "I should hope not! If I don't want you, why would I want someone like you. Unknown Mortal Trans-Siberian Orchestra I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying. Oscar Olivia Wilde I can stand brute force, but brute reason is quite unbearable. There is something unfair about its use. It is hitting below the intellect. Oscar Wilde Love is like a booger. You keep picking at it until you get it, then wonder what to do with it. Ariel Naya Rivera I put all my genius into my life; I put only my talent into my works.

Welcome to the Quotes Center One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries. --A. A. Milne Drawing on my fine command of language, I said nothing. -Robert Benchley Imagination is more important than knowledge. -Albert Einstein May you never meet a mouse in your cupboard with tears in his eyes! -J.

My favorite Jack Handey: One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh no,' I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' "He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. 'I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.
Jack Handey on the narrator of THE STENCH OF HONOLULU: "It's not me, and I'm not the Deep Thoughts guy. He's sort of a borderline psychopath. I mean, he's like a dangerous person who thinks he's normal. I hope it's not exactly like me. Maybe a little bit. Or more. Like the Deep Thoughts guy."
"To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kinda scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus and a clown killed my dad." Jack Handey
More thoughts by Jack Handey: To those who have read the book "Love Wins", today marks one more day of living in quasi *** on earth. Not to disappoint, perhaps tomorrow at least for me will be one more like heaven. Is there an actual place where, God in His omnipotence, deems sinners damned for eternity? Jesus tells us not to fear those who can destroy the body, but to fear the one who can send us to *** Again, is *** an actual place? In the old covenant God separates Israel from the rest of the "reprobates", (goats and the sheep), to me that seems cut and dry. In the new covenant or testament God grafts the gentiles in the Jewish tradition. And through the work of Christ allows those who believe in Him to not perish and have everlasting life. I think we need to make a distinction here. If the prophesy of Joel 2 is coming to pass then we need to make sure that although God is moving profoundly through this dispensation, this epoch in time, His word is still timeless. I don't believe we can "ju ...

New Thoughts By Jack Handey Jr Sometimes I think about a line from my favorite song; 'Mommy's got a squeeze box, Daddy never sleeps at night.' It's funny how different that song would be if you used bag instead of box.
Sitat 2 (også Jack Handey): "If you lived in the Dark Ages, and you were a catapult operator, I bet the most common question people would ask is, "Can't you make it shoot farther?" No. I'm sorry. That's as far as it shoots."
"When I die, I would like to go peacefully, in my sleep, Like my grandfather did. Not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car." ~ Jack Handey
Haven't done one of these in a while. Jack Handey quote of the day: "Whenever I start thinking that I'm not living up to my potential, I remind myself of the old farmer and his fight to the death with the insane pig. It's an exciting story, and it takes my mind off all this 'potential' business."
I want piñatas at my funeral so people can be happy, but filled with bees so they're not too happy.~ another Deep Thought by Jack Handey
Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey- When I was a kid my favorite relative was Uncle Caveman. After school we'd all go play in his cave, and every once in a while he would eat one of us. It wasn't until later that I found out that Uncle Caveman was a bear

Before there were snarky internet memes — way back in the dark ages of the '90s — there were Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey. For the uninitiated, Deep Thoughts was a brilliantly satirical Saturday Night Live segment that set wonderfully absurd reflections and non-sequitirs on life and love against a b...

I was looking for a famous quote and found this. Jack Handey was a bit on SNL some years ago. I can still hear the voice. Jack Handey Deep Thoughts: When you die, if you go somewhere where they ask you a bunch of questions about your life and what you learned and all, I think a good way to get out of it is just to say, 'No speaka English.'
Jack Handey never fails in putting a smile on my face. - The wise man can pick up a grain of sand and envision a whole universe. But the stupid man will just lay down on some seaweed and roll around in it until he's completely draped in it. Then he'll stand up and go, 'Hey, I'm Vine Man.'
Does anybody remember when " Deep thoughts by Jack Handey" were on Saturday Night Live! I have always thought that show was sooo funny! This makes me feel old, but I remember when Dan Akroyd, John Belushey and Bill Murray were on there. My mom would even watch it.Anyway, I think Deep thoughts was on Around the time that Phil Hartman was on, but not sure (RIP- he was great!)Anyway, I still have two of those books they printed with the funny sayings.They are all dry and sarcastic, but it was the way he used a soothing voice when he said them, made them all the more funnier, so... I decided I am going to start posting some for a good laugh! Hope some of you remember those.Here is the first one." If you are being chased by an angry bull, and then you notice you're also being chased by a swarm of bees, it doesn't really change things.Just keep on running." Lol. From the book " The Lost Deep thoughts(Don't fight the deepness) by Jack Handey.
“If God dwells inside of us like some people say, I sure hope He likes enchiladas, because that’s what He’s getting.” ~ Jack Handey
The Best Advice of the Year By Craig Ballantyne It was my golden age of television. When I was thirteen years old, I’d race home from my Sunday morning hockey game, rewind the tape in the VCR, lie on the family room floor out at the old farmhouse, and watch a recording of the latest episode of Saturday Night Live. Phil Hartman, Dana Carvey, Kevin Nealon. Colon Blow. Happy Fun Ball (still legal in 16 states!). Church Lady. Deep thoughts by Jack Handey. Those names and skits still bring a smile to my face almost 25 years later. Even Stuart Smalley. Do you remember that character played by Al Franken? Smalley was a parody of the self-help and affirmation world, with a catch-phrase he’d repeat to himself in a mirror, “You’re good enough, you’re smart enough, and doggone it, people like you!” It wasn’t a character that would elicit a great belly laugh, but a smile and a chuckle all the same. Stuart Smalley’s advice, however, won’t get you very far in the real world. Affirmations might give yo ...

"If u drop ur keys in river of lava, let em go, because man, they're gone"-Jack Handey (also how I feel bout the book the post office lost)
I guess I kinda lost control because in the middle of the play I ran up and lit the evil puppet villain on fire. No, I didn't. Just kidding. I just said that to illustrate one of the human emotions, which is freaking out. Another emotion is greed, as when someone kills someone for money, or something like that. Another emotion is generosity, as when you pay someone double what he paid for his stupid puppet. -- Deep Thoughts, by Jack Handey
if you double a recipe do you always double the ingredients?.deep thoughts by Jack Handey lol

A funny thing is if you're out hiking and your friend gets bit by a poisonous snake, tell him you're going for help, then go about ten feet and pretend YOU got bit by a snake. Then start an argument about who's going to get help. A lot of guys will start crying. That's why it makes you feel good when you tell them it was just a joke. ~ Jack Handey Deep Thoughts

GUEST CORNER: "Deep Thoughts... by Jack Handey"--- Instead of a trap door, what about a trap window? The guy looks out it, and if he leans too far, he falls out. Wait... I guess that's like a regular window.

If I were a rat rodder, I'd rat-rod right up to another rat rodder and say, "hey man, how's the rat rodding?" Of course, we'd both know how the rat rodding was, because we would both be rat rodding, but it would be like a bond between us rat rodders.* (*shamelessly rat-rodded from original quote by Jack Handey about surfers. See all you rat rodders in Detroit!)
A quiet Sunday morning: Winter's blue bruise spreading across the steel Cleveland sky, Fats Waller on the hi-fi, and reflecting back on the whirlwind that has been the last 3 months. Man, what a journey. Making cheese is so unlike any of the conventional culinary practices I've learned over the years. It's most closely related to making beer or wine, yet totally different in so many ways. It really is more like gardening - you are tweaking the metabolism of living organisms by controlling environmental factors.

Another thing gardening and cheese making have in common is that they both require patience as the biological processes need time to work their magical transformations. It it only fitting to end this "Deep Thoughts" portion of my broadcast with a Jack Handey quote: “Is there anything more beautiful than a beautiful, beautiful flamingo, flying across in front of a beautiful sunset ...

A question to the women out there... I thought this was a joke, but he really said it. "I called her crazy. I called her a bbut I never called her fat." Lance Armstrong said this. Is it ok to call women crazy and bjust as long as you don't call them fat?

Small things are important. Seconds are very small things but when you pile them up on one another they become a person's life.
