“Bungee Jump is to Suicide as General Anaesthetic is to Lethal Injection. You only know the difference on the way back up.”
Matt Greene, Ostrich

“I can tell my parents are unhappy by the way they smile at waiters. In that small act of ingratiation I can see the custody battle to come.”
Matt Greene, Ostrich

“Simon Nagel is an Alkaline Jew and his grandfather was in a concentration camp (I forget which one. It’s definitely not Auschwitz but it would be one of the other top answers in Family Fortunes if they ever did that round).”
