My mind reels with sarcastic replies!

Joey Comeau
“I love those dark moments in Peanuts. I love that they're in there, that Charles Schulz put the sad lonely bits of himself into the comic. I love the silliness too, the dancing Snoopy strips. The little boy Rerun drawing "basement" comics about Tarzan fighting Daffy Duck in a helicopter. Those are the bits that keep me reading. The funny parts! The fun parts. The silly bits that don't make any sense. And when I get to the sad lonely Peppermint Patty standing in a field wondering why nobody shook hands and said "good game," well, it works because that's not all she was. I try to think that way about everything. That's the kind of person I want to be.”
Joey Comeau, We all got it coming

“Sucking your thumb without a blanket is like eating a cone without ice cream!”

Helene Hanff
“I fail to see why you did not understand that groceryman, he did not call it 'ground ground nuts,' he called it ground ground-nuts which is the only really SENSible thing to call it. Peanuts grow in the GROUND and are therefore GROUND-nuts, and after you take them out of the ground you grind them up and you have ground ground-nuts, which is a much more accurate name than peanut butter, you just don't understand English.”
Helene Hanff, 84, Charing Cross Road

George Washington Carver
“NOTE-Always remove the brown hull from the peanuts even though the recipe does not say so.”
George Washington Carver, How to Grow the Peanut and 105 Ways of Preparing it for Human Consumption:

Jonathan Franzen
“Con questo non voglio dire che il depresso e insicuro Charlie Brown, l’egoista e sadica Lucy, l’eccentrico filosofo Linus e l’ossessivo Schroeder (che soddisfa le sue ambizioni beethoveniane con un pianoforte giocattolo e una sola ottava) non siano tutti avatar di Schultz. Ma il suo vero alter ego è chiaramente Snoopy: l’imbroglione proteiforme che fonda la propria libertà sulla certezza di essere in fondo adorabile, il trasformista che, per puro divertimento, può diventare un elicottero, un giocatore di hokey o il Grande Brachetto, e poi di nuovo, in un lampo, prima che il suo virtuosismo possa annoiarvi o sminuirvi, tornare a essere il cagnolino vivace che aspetta solo la cena.”
Jonathan Franzen

Charles M. Schulz
“Il re Luigi II? Beh, sottraendo Luigi XIV da Luigi XVI, si ha Luigi II! Ah, no? Diavolo! Mi pareva una risposta niente male!”
Charles M. Schulz

“Marcie, hai una macchina per cucire!
Non è mia capo… È di mia madre.
Perché non mi fai un costume da pattinaggio, Marcie?
Io non so cucire, capo…
Ecco! Puoi farmi un costume rosso con tanti lustrini!
Non sei una che ascolta, vero, capo?”
Charles M. Schulz

Charles M. Schulz
“Diciamo che il mio orgoglio aveva l’influenza, ok, Ciccio?”
Charles M. Schulz

Charles M. Schulz
“Marcie mi sta facendo un costume, Snoopy. Adesso è solo questione che io e te ci occupiamo del mio pattinaggio in modo che possa far bene nella gara... Come sono le mie figure?
Non sei un grande addolcitore di pillole, vero?”
Charles M. Schulz

Charles M. Schulz
“Mi vuoi più bene di quanto te ne voglio io, Ciccio?
Non so… Tu mi vuoi più bene di quanto te ne voglio io?
Non facciamo giochi da innamorati, Ciccio!”
Charles M. Schulz

“Alecto… what do you think would happen if people found out about you? Your abilities, your life, Mearth’s super 8 films, those powers of yours… how would they react?”

“I don’t know,” said Alecto, “but ordinary people like a show, especially when it’s a disturbing one. They enjoy seeing misery… probably because it allows them to pretend that they themselves are not so miserable, too. Also, they would probably find out about you, how you know about Personifications, how you saw the films… they would put us in cages and throw peanuts at us, I guess.”

“All joking aside, Alecto.…”

“Who is joking, Mandy Valems?”
Rebecca McNutt, Mandy and Alecto: The Collected Smog City Book Series

Charles M. Schulz
“Cosa succede, Patty? Stai piangendo…
Una lacrima non è piangere.”

Rick Riordan
“His office was on the third floor of the Humanities & Social Sciences Building, just down the hall from the interview room. On the office door was a Peanuts cartoon of Lucy in the psychiatrist's booth with the little DOCTOR is IN sign. Professor Mitchell, a man on the cutting edge of humor.”
Rick Riordan, The Widower's Two-Step

“Mr. Megishima has already begun the broth.
First he minced some garlic...
and then onion, red bell peppers and perfectly ripe tomatoes, building a flavor with a deeply complex acidity and body."
"What sort of stock did you choose?"
"Chicken. Already got it going in a stockpot.
In fact...
... it should be just about ready."
"Just the scent of that stock is enough to make you fidget in anticipation!"
"Man, I'd totally be happy just pouring that over some white rice and chowing down!"

"With the base stock ready, I'll add the veggies I cut up...
... along with some drumettes and other stuff.
Now to let 'em simmer in the pot until their flavors meld together. Then the broth'll be done."
"Another point to watch is the Char Siu pork he put together a moment ago. He made certain to rub it with a certain marinade before binding it."
"A special marinade?"
"Yes. It was made with garlic, soy sauce, sugar, sake, and one more intriguing ingredient...
Those, I believe, will be the key to his entire dish!
Holy crap! What the heck is with that overflowing giant tub of red peppers?!"
"Yes... he will use peanuts...
... to bring out every last drop of deliciousness red peppers possess!
