In honor of April Fools, I thought we should extend this one more day with some foolish quotes. Quotes from stupid people. I won’t tell you which one I made up myself.
In the game of life, life always wins.

-President George W. Bush
Now I don’t feel comfortable mocking former or current presidents, but Bush said some pretty incredible stuff. I love the guy, he had this local, smarmy charm.

-President Barack Obama
You do realize that he was born in Hawaii, right? Foolish quotes for sure…

-Rose in the film Titanic.
