“Susie is having trouble with her computer so she calls Harry, the computer guy, over to her desk. Harry clicks a couple buttons and solves the problem. “So, what was wrong?” asks Susie. Harry replies, “It was an ID ten T error.” “ So what’s that?” asks Suzie. “Write it down,” says Harry. “You’ll figure it out.”

“He shook with rage. 'Look what you have done, you vandal. You have destroyed everything!'

'What did you expect me to do? Bend over and wait for the broom-handle?”

“Gummy was beaten up, strangled, shot and thrown on an ant hill. That's not the action of a lone killer; that's murder by committee. Who else round here has that kind of muscle? The Colonial Dames of America?”
Stephen Arnott, Jack Bleacher: a parody

Lee Child, Personal

“For every year humans had been modern, they had been primitive for seven hundred more, which left a residue, and by then the back part of my brain was firmly in charge - My tribe needs you gone, pal. And you're ugly, too. And you're a pussy.”
Lee Child, Personal
