Much to my surprise, I came across this page of "Alex Boese Quotes"
on thinkexist.com. I was kind of flattered to find it, even though I'm sure the page was created by a computer trawling newspaper articles, and despite the fact that the three quotes (which I do recognize, and which I did say) are completely unmemorable. I think I've said some better things in my life. For instance, the first sentence of Hippo Eats Dwarf
is better: "We live in a hippo-eats-dwarf world."
And what about this quote from page 12 of Hippo Eats Dwarf
: "The fact is that men possess all the biological equipment necessary to produce breast milk." That's a quote worth committing to memory.
Or from page 79: "Drinking your own urine is said to help improve your immune system, give you nice skin, prevent aging, and fight gum disease. And that's just for starters."
Or from page 83: "To produce rat-milk cheese, you would need an awful lot of rats."
I notice that thinkexist has a "submit a new Alex Boese quote" link. So if anyone is interested, be my guest. Maybe you can even think of some things I should have said.
