Monday Misquotations

by zydecopaws on May 18, 2009

Since no BBQ is happening tonight due to leftovers from yesterday still being consumed, I figured it would be a good time to pull out some more dubious research into BBQ quotations by famous (and not so famous) people. So with no further delay…

Those who cannot remember the past BBQ are condemned to repeat it. — George Santayana

What would you attempt to BBQ if you knew you could not fail? — Robert Schuller

Build a barbecue that even a fool can use, and only a fool will want to use it. — George Bernard Shaw (was he referring to this one?)

Barbecue is popular because it combines the maximum of temptation with the maximum of opportunity.  — George Bernard Shaw

Health food makes me sick. — Calvin Trillin (actually, I think this is a real quote)

I have never let my schooling interfere with my barbecue. — Mark Twain

It’s not the BBQs in my life that count, it’s the life in my BBQs. — Mae West

Good barbecue comes from experience, and experience–well, that comes from poor barbecue. — Cousin Woodman

Nothing has really happened until it has been recorded. — Virginia Woolf (usually misquoted as “no pictures, didn’t happen”)

And, as stated above, no pictures with this post, so it really didn’t happen…
