The British monarch does have what historian Robert Lacey calls a “dry and slightly mordant sense of humor,” and has in recent years developed a stock line for whenever the cellphone of a visitor goes off: "You'd better answer that. It might be someone important."

These ambiguities, redundancies and deficiencies remind us of those which doctor Franz Kuhn attributes to a certain Chinese encyclopaedia entitled 'Celestial Empire of benevolent Knowledge'. In its remote pages it is written that the animals are divided into:
(a) belonging to the emperor,
(b) embalmed,
(c) tame,
(d) sucking pigs,
(e) sirens,
(f) fabulous,
(g) stray dogs,
(h) included in the present classification,
(i) frenzied,
(j) innumerable,
(k) drawn with a very fine camel hair brush,
(l) et cetera,
(m) having just broken the water pitcher,
n) that from a long way off look like flies.

"They made it sound as if, back in the day when Loeb and Einhorn were paying 1/8 of a dollar spreads to knuckle-dragging pit orcs, no rock-ribbed he-man trader with 10lbs of undigested beef in his lower intestine would would dare move his price away from where Loeb and Einhorn wanted it."

Not really a quote, but a thought:

Ed Balls, Labour Party Treasury spokesman, said the government should do more to spur building, as well as reduce the top value of homes that can be purchased under Help to Buy. He said that unless the government acts, there is a danger the BOE “will be forced to raise interest rates prematurely.”

Bloomberg journalists didn't use the excellent chance to make a headline "Balls indicating some premature actions."

The crowd hushed in unison as a glimpse of a figure appeared in the clouded distance.

He looked almost young yet his age was impossible to guess.
He was not tall, yet he had many tall ways.
As they stared, he sat upon a rock.

[...]



A scholar asked:
―Could you advise me of a proper vocation, Master?


He then said:
―[Bible-y gibberish]   So you see, the nature of the vocation must fit the individual.


―But I have no abilities, desires, or talents, Master, the man sobbed.


―Have you thought of becoming a stockbroker?
