A Quote by Patrick Jake "P.J." O'Rourke on germans and farting

Because of their cuisine, Germans don't consider farting rude. They'd certainly be out of luck if they did.

A Quote by Patrick Jake "P.J." O'Rourke on life, rest, and stupidity

A hat should be taken off when you greet a lady and left off for the rest of your life. Nothing looks more stupid than a hat.

A Quote by Patrick Jake "P.J." O'Rourke on books, brothers, celebrity, determination, diet, exercise, imagination, libraries, life, majorities, population, and women

Imagine of all of life were determined by majority rule. Every meal would be a pizza. Every pair of pants, even those in a Brooks Brothers suit, would be stonewashed denim. Celebrity diet and exercise books would be the only thing on library shelves. And-since women are a majority of the population-we'd all be married to Mel Gibson.

A Quote by Patrick Jake "P.J." O'Rourke on circumstances, dogs, and people

People are all exactly alike. There's no such thing as a race and barely such a thing as an ethnic group. If we were dogs, we'd be the same breed. George Bush and an Australian Aborigine have fewer differences than a Lhasa apso and a toy fox terrier. A Japanese raised in Riyadh would be an Arab. A Zulu raised in New Rochelle would be an orthodontist. People are all the same, though their circumstances differ terribly.
