Who said it?

1. China is a big country, inhabited by many chinese.

2. I haven't committed a crime. What I did was to fail to comply with the law.

3. Whenever I watch TV and see those poor starving kids all over the world, I can't help but cry. I mean, I'd love to be skinny like that, but not with all those flies and death and stuff.

4. Sure there have been injuries and deaths in boxing, but none of them serious.

Charles de Gaulle, David Dinkins, Mariah Carey, Alan Minter.

De Gaulle may have been elaborating upon Hans Christian Andersen's immortal anthropological observation, in "The Nightingale", that "In China, you know, the Emperor is a Chinese, and all the people around him are Chinese."

You win smartarse. If I didn't know, I would have guessed: George Bush/Dan Quayle, Tony Blair (in the future), a Miss World contestant and Frank Bruno .

Well, the competition was pretty fierce, but I made it in the end. I thought No.3 was worthy of Bill Hicks and was greatly disappointed to see that it was (presumably) meant seriously. No.4 could be any boxer who has been elevated to the commentary box once a sufficient number of neurons have been pounded out through his earholes.

Now - as regards prizes ...

sound of room clearing

... large amounts of cash?

Prizes?...ahem..Aside from the massive satisfaction from winning out of such a huge number of entries... I am considering tantalising you (again) with an order for Beelzebub. However, I am waiting to see if I have joined the ranks of those with a job offer first, so that I have sufficient pennies to put something resembling food on the table.

If Beelzebub is too much (or whether it is or not), I've got a couple of cheaper ones out now, which may prove more digestible should you be forced to eat them.

It just goes to show, you can't believe anything you read in the papers and magazines.

I don't even know who Mariah Carey is. I just looked the quote up on Google.

I'll bet. That's like David Traynier claiming he's never seen a single carry on film in his life ;-)
