I used to think he was god. Then I began to understand how he would have mocked me for that.
One of his remarks that I've always enjoyed stemmed from an early arrest:
I got arrested for saying shit in a town where the number-one game is called craps!In between episodes of shredding the socio-political fabric, he did lighter work:I remember him as Mr. Conductor, after Ringo left. And of course I saw him in this (didn't everyone?):
My all time favourites from him were the throwaway little "things you never see/hear."
You never see a big fat tall Chinese guy with red hair. You never hear someone say "Hand me that piano." You never see a wheelchair with a roll bar.
And of course, the legendary:
Here's something no-one has ever heard, ever:The world is a slightly tawdrier and cheaper place with him out of it.
"As soon as I put this hot poker in my ass I'm going to chop my dick off!"
You know why you never heard that? Right! Cause nobody ever SAID that!
I am the first person in the history of the world to put those words together in that particular order.
