"""Deep Thoughts
   - by Jack Handy
"It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.",
"When you're riding in a time machine way far into the future, don't stick your elbow out the window, or it'll turn into a fossil.",
"I wish I had a Kryptonite cross, because then you could keep both Dracula AND Superman away.",
"I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.",
"I hope if dogs ever take over the world, and they chose a king, they don't just go by size, because I bet there are some Chihuahuas with some good ideas.",
"The face of a child can say it all, especially the mouth part of the face."
