tongue and cheek!

One day Chan master Yangqi (Yang-chi, 992-1049), after meditating with the large assembly of monks, got up to give the formal lecture on the way of enlightenment. Gazing out at all the monks, he instead began laughing. “Ha! Ha! Ha! What’s all this? Ha! Ha! Please go to the back of the hall and drink some tea!”

Richer than God

In the movies we sometimes hear: "He's got more money than God!"

It sounds dramatic and impressive but it's really nonsensical. In this sense, anybody is richer than God. God doesn't have a cent to his name. God is about Love not Money. Yet He is possessive: "Every hair on your head is bought and paid for."

Say it again, Popeye!

"A crinimal is worse'n a aminal - he is a emeny to all hoomans." Popeye
