    Andy Rooney On Prisoners:

    Did you know that it costs forty-thousand dollars a year to house each prisoner? Jeez, for forty-thousand bucks a piece I'll take a few prisoners into my house. I live in Los Angeles. I already have bars on the windows. I don't think we should give free room and board to criminals. I think they should have to run twelve hours a day on a treadmill to generate electricity. And if they don't want to run, they can rest in the chair that's hooked up to the generator.

    Andy Rooney On Ads In Bills:

    Have you ever noticed that they put advertisements in with your bills now? Like bills aren't distasteful enough, they have to stuff junk mail in there with them. I get back at them. I put garbage in with my check when I mail it in. Coffee grinds, banana peels...I write, "Could you throw this away for me? Thank You."

    Andy Rooney On Fabric Softener:

    My wife uses fabric softener. I never knew what that stuff was for. Then I noticed women coming up to me (sniff) "Married' (walk off). That's how they mark their territory. You can take off the ring, but it's hard to get that April fresh scent out of your clothes.

    Andy Rooney On Morning Differences:

    Men and women are different in the morning. The men wake up aroused in the morning. We can't help it. We just wake up and we want you. And the women are thinking, 'How can he want me the way I look in the morning?' It's because we can't see you. We have no blood anywhere near our optic nerve.

    Andy Rooney On Phone-In-Polls:

    You know those shows where people call in and vote on different issues? Did you ever notice there's always like 18% that say "I don't know." It costs 90 cents to call up and vote and they're voting "I don't know." "Honey, I feel very strongly about this. Give me the phone."(Says into phone) "I DON'T KNOW!" (Hangs up looking proud.) Sometimes you have to stand up for what you believe you're not sure about. "This guy! probably calls up phone sex girls for $2.95 to say "I'm not in the mood".

    Andy Rooney on the Word Cripes:

    My wife's from the Midwest. Very nice people there. Very wholesome. They use words like 'Cripes'. 'For Cripe's sake.' Who would that be, Jesus Cripe's? The son of 'Gosh' of the church of 'Holy Moly'? I'm not making fun of it. You think I wanna burn in 'Heck'?

    Andy Rooney On Grandma:

    My grandmother has a bumper sticker on her car that says, 'Sexy Senior Citizen.' You don't want to think of your grandmother that way, do you? Out entering wet shawl contests? Makes you wonder where she got that dollar she gave you for your birthday.

    Andy Rooney On Answering Machines:

    Did you ever hear one of these corny, positive messages on someone's answering machine? "Hi, it's a great day and I'm out enjoying it right now. I hope you are too. The thought for the day is 'share the love.' Beep." "Ugh, yeah...this is the VD clinic calling.... Speaking of being positive, your test results are back. Stop sharing the love."

    ROFLMAO! Nice. :)

    Computers make it easier to do a lot of things, but most of the things they make it easier to do don't need to be done.

    Don't rule out working with your hands. It does not preclude using your head.

    Here are a few more:

    I don't like food that's too carefully arranged; it makes me think that the chef is spending too much time arranging and not enough time cooking. If I wanted a picture I'd buy a painting.

    If you smile when no one else is around, you really mean it.

    We're all proud of making little mistakes. It gives us the feeling we don't make any big ones.

    We've sent a man to the moon, and that's 29,000 miles away. The center of the Earth is only 4,000 miles away. You could drive that in a week, but for some reason nobody's ever done it.

    Hehe. I like this guy. :)
