    Default Funny, interesting or weird quotes from books

    Read a book and you wanted to share that funny passage/phrase with someone? Or maybe you read a weird line that's so weird and odd it made you laugh? Or just made you go ?
    Anything goes, from weird to interesting, from "oh my god, i can't stop laughing" to "my god, is this author insane?".
    Share and bring a smile on our faces cause we so need them these days.


    For the moment, I have no ideas, but I'm sure you do, so go on and post
    for all
    And remember, sharing is caring

    He uncovered his wrist and showed her his Leo tattoo. She looked at it and nodded soberly but then looked at him with bright eyes. “Holy sh*t! You're the guy who dec**d the lion, aren't you? I thought you looked familiar!”
    He hated YouTube. He wished it would die of mad cow disease.

    “You have Elijah Prophet’s computer,” a voice said. It was being processed through a voice changer, which you could buy at a spy store or a toy store. It was a cheap one; the guy sounded like Darth Vader with a severe case of asthma. “Return it, or we will take it by force.”
    “Whatever. Get a better voice changer and call me back.”
    “You ignore us at your peril.”
    “Do I? What d’ya got, boy? Whip it out and show me, or f*** the hell off before I rip off your face and eat it.” He flipped the phone shut and dropped it in his pocket, picking up the piles of paper. Once he’d gathered them up, he noticed a female barista who had been walking by had stopped and was staring at him, looking shocked, probably due to his threat. He flashed her a friendly smile and headed for the door.
    What? He never said he was Miss Congeniality.

    Lady Bracknell: May I ask if it is in this house that your invalid friend Mr. Bunbury resides?

    Algernon: Oh! No! Bunbury doesn't live here. Bunbury is somewhere else at present. In fact, Bunbury is dead.

    Lady Bracknell: Dead! When did Mr. Bunbury die? His death must have been extremely sudden.

    Algernon: Oh! I killed Bunbury this afternoon. I mean poor Bunbury died this afternoon.

    Lady Bracknell: What did he die of?

    Algernon: Bunbury? Oh, he was quite exploded.

    Lady Bracknell: Exploded! Was he the victim of a revolutionary outrage? I was not aware that Mr. Bunbury was interested in social legislation. If so, he is well punished for his morbidity.

    Algernon: My dear Aunt Augusta. I mean he was found out! The doctors found out that Bunbury could not live, that is what I mean so Bunbury died.

    Lady Bracknell: he seems to have had great confidence in the opinion of his physicians. I am glad, however, that he made up his mind at the last to some definite course of action, and acted under proper medical advice.

    I just had discussion with my friend about sharing books and such stuff and after we finished (and I won btw) we remembered this quote, some would say that his whole books are hilarious and they're probably right

    ‘So people you know at Brazeneck send you stuff?’ said Ridcully.
    ‘Oh, yes,’ said Ponder.
    ‘For free?’
    ‘Of course, sir,’ said Ponder, looking surprised. ‘The free sharing of information is central to the pursuit of natural philosophy.’
    ‘And so you tell them things, do you?’
    Ponder sighed. ‘Yes, of course.’
    ‘I don’t think I approve of that,’ said Ridcully. ‘I’m all for the free sharing of information, provided it’s them sharing their information with us.’
    ‘Yes, sir, but I think we’re rather hampered by the meaning of the word “sharing”.’


    From Unseen Academicals Discwold Novel by Sir Terry Pratchett

    this one was funny for me to
    “If you want me to suck that thing, you better get it down to lip range.”

    “Where’s my treat, Puppy Boy? I’ve been wanting to see it for ever so long.
    I didn’t know you were an elephant shifter.”

    and they are more
    i agree with shade its very funny on some parts

    “It’s an admission of perjury as well as utterly disgraceful conduct. Why did he agree to write it?”


    “I am in the process of nailing Mr. Humphrey Griffin to the wall so thoroughly that future generations will mistake him for a tapestry,” said Crane.

    just the image it created reading it:

    “You will play with Martin.” Jonah pointed his doll at Dante in a
    no-nonsense manner. “I’ll bring my tea set when I come back.”
    Dante wasn’t sure what he feared more at this moment, facing the
    Ultionem for what’d happened to his coven or having tea with Jonah
    and his plastic friends.

    Forever yours - Lynn Hagen

    “If you boys are going to exchange looks like that, you might want to warn a lady. I’ll skip my hormones and just let—as my granddaughter would say—your hawtness warm up my menopausal flareups.”

    “My son and his boyfriend live in Miami Beach, and I’ve been to the White Party, so get over yourselves.

    Now, Nick, not many of the folks here know you’re queer as a three dollar bill, but save the gay panic for someone who cares. Take a lesson from Danny here and relax, don’t do it when you wanna come.” She did a little disco dance.

    - Broken Road Cafe - T.A Webb

    The dialogue in this book had me in stitches

    Again from the Broken Road Cafe, what can i say i love it................

    Abe was the first to reach him. 'Baby, it's not what it looks like.' Dan was incredulous. 'Are you f*****g kidding me? You have a c**k in your mouth and one in your ass, and it's not what it looks like?

    Oh my f*****g God. You not only threaten me, you quote Joan Crawford. If I weren't a big old 'mo, I'd marry you.' Charity snorted. 'Honey, you couldn't afford me. And I'd have your balls for breakfast
