  • “Funny how this 'surgery' happens to coincide with the finals of America's Got Talent. I'm just saying, keep an eye out for a 6'4" bearded man whose talent is smoking 8 cigars at the same time.”

  • “So I swam all the way over to America to avoid persecution just for the guy to die 16 years later? Nuts!”
