THE ABSURD TIMES — STILL

Omar Sharif and Lawrence of Arabia

THE ABSURD TIMES

We all mourn the passing of Omar Sharif and we can not say enough about him.

All I can do is say that this reminds me of the movie Lawrence of Arabia and the line that Anthony Quinn has to another. Actually, I remember the line incorrectly as I realized upon seeing the film again, but I like my version better. It is “THANK YOUR GOD THAT WHEN HE GAVE YOU THE MIND OF A FOOL, HE GAVE YOU A FACE TO MATCH!”

    Americans are fools and we elect….fools. If you have to appeal to Americans you’ll have to be ‘a man of the people’. That’s why Adlai Stevenson didn’t make it.

    In one of Ray Bradbury’s stories a fat woman yells “We’re common as dirt, and proud of it!”

    Yee-hah!

    I remember a line from Gene Wilder in Blazing Saddles. After the new, black, sheriff has had dozens of townsfolk call him names, he says “You have to understand: these people are the salt of the earth, the common clay, you know — Morons”
