Three Quotes to Make You Vomit

From a "News Article":

"Among Lola's tattoos is an elegant word string that wraps her right arm. It's a line, in Sanskrit, from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's 1943 fable 'The Little Prince': 'It is only with the heart that once can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.'"

Overheard on BART Last Night:

"Of course my mother-in-law died on 9/11, so I guess she was on the welcoming comittee for all those people in New York."

From the reader comments on a right-wing website:

"... [Y]ou have to consider that these people were essentially surplus. In other words, the least-functional 20% of the population of New Orleans has been eliminated. That obviously INCREASES the overall functionality of the New Orleans population."

... I should've ended with the tattoo one, shouldn't I? Would've been less depressing.
