Some of my favourite quotes from imaginary clipart figurehead of the Church of the Subgenius, Time Magazine's #1 "Phoney Or Fraud" of the 20th century, the one and only J.R. "Bob" Dobbs:

"Don't just eat that hamburger, eat the HELL out of it!"
"F**k 'em if they can't take a joke, joke 'em if they can't take a f**k!"
"Pull the wool over your own eyes."
"You'll PAY to know what you really think."
"When two or three are gathered in my name, am I not there? Do you not feel my hands in your pockets?"

"I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together, in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was hurricane. "

— John Green (Looking for Alaska)
