Quote Mangling

I love quotes because they pack a lot of energy into small packages without requiring a long winded and jargon filled explanation. I also like extending quotes to give another take on the wisdom imparted by the original text because I’ve learned to never believe anything 100 percent; including my own twisted and anguished thoughts. Here are some snarky Bulldozer00 quote enhancements:

  1. “When the going gets tough, the tough get going – right out the door with the cash.” (English proverb + Bulldozer00)
  2. “I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody – another key to failure is trying to piss everybody off.” (Bill Cosby + Bulldozer00)
  3. “A lot of people mistake unnecessary complexity for sophistication – and those people are usually managers.” (Dan Ward + Bulldozer00)
  4. “If you are indispensable, you’re unpromotable – but at least you know how to directly create value.” (Unknown + Bulldozer00)
  5. “I love deadlines because I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by – and the angst they instill in the managers who dictated them.” (Doug Adams + Bulldozer00)
  6. “Multitasking is not for serious work – it’s for managerial make-work.” (Bjarne Stroustrup + Bulldozer00)
  7. “I believe that there is such a thing as objective truth, but a lot of people have an objective truth that differs from mine – and those people are wrong.” (Cynthia Tucker+ Bulldozer00)
  8. “Debugging is like farting, it’s not so bad when it’s your own code – except when you crap your pants.” (Unknown + Bulldozer00)
  9. “What we need is more people to lose their temper in public – unless people in power are in the vicinity.” – (Watts Wacker + Bulldozer00)
  10. “The point of quotations is that one can use another’s words to be insulting – D’oh! and WTF?.” – (Amanda Cross+ Homer Simpson + Bulldozer00)
