Back when I was living in Columbus, Ohio my friends and I started a quote wall. Whenever a bit of brilliance (or otherwise) poured out of someone’s mouth, somebody would yell “Quote!” thus nominating it for Quote Board status.

This is the modern-day equivalent of that classic piece of my past.

Check out all of the headers (so far) here,


Calm down, Mannie.

It’s just a painting,

Old Poop!
