    February 27 is NO BRAINER DAY. I think, if the day only had a theme song, it would be:

    For a be-careful-what-you-wish-for opinion, an “in the KNOW BRAINER might say this:

    The brain is a thinking machine whose chief use is to find reasons to keep thinking as we already do. –-Evan Esar

    Yet, what good is thinking if we can’t say what we think:

    Should headstrong opinions ever be repressed?
    ‘twould be a shame to leave them unexpressed.
    Relative thinking gets no respect from the majority;
    To impress, you must express opinions with authority.

    But let’s look at it scientifically:

    Men’s minds are merely neurons;
    Men’s brains are but computers.
    Men’s eyes: brain switch-offs in the head
    When activated by women’s hooters.


    In my humble opinion, that’s enough to think about on NO BRAINER DAY. If you have an opinion, save it….unless it agrees with mine.

      I don’t want to think about it.

      No problem, Ricardo. I know you’re a big Oz fan, but as Scarlett O’Hara said in that “other” 1939 film, “Tomorrow is another day.”

      Muse, you know how people say this is my day. Well this is my day. Why? That’s a no brainer.

      Great clip. Great movie.

      You got that right, Don. Outside of CASABLANCA, I guess I watched WIZARD OF OZ more than any other movie (especially when I was younger).

      @”unless it agrees with mine.” – hopefully and fortunately, it does… 🙂 I also loved “Oz” as a kid and I did watch it several times… as for “Casablanca”, I still continue to watch it – each time it’s on some TV channel… so welcome to the “Oz & Casablanca” fan club and play it again, Mister Muse! 🙂

      Melanie, you’re obviously a gal after my own heart — if I only had one! I’m off to see the wizard…..

      I missed the whole day, and went about thinking over too much stuff.

    February 27 is NO BRAINER DAY, the one day in the year which provides all the excuse I need to do a post requiring no intelligent writing on my part (as opposed to all those posts for which I had no excuse). This will be, in other words, a post of others’ words. I will, however, endeavor to be clever as ever by never resorting to quotes irrelevant to the subject of the day.

    The world is more like it is now than it has ever been before. -Dwight Eisenhower

    Those who survived the San Francisco earthquake said, “Thank God, I’m still alive.” But of course, those who died, their lives will never be the same again. –Calif. Senator Barbara Boxer

    If you take out the killings, Washington actually has a very low crime rate. -former Washington D.C. Mayor Marion Berry

    More and more of our imports are coming from overseas. –George W. Bush

    A low voter turnout is an indication of fewer voters going to the polls. -Dan Quayle

    If it weren’t for electricity, we’d all be watching TV by candlelight. -George Gobel

    Ignorance has its virtues: without it, there would be mighty little conversation. -Evan Esar

    There is nothing so stupid as the educated man, if you get off the thing he was educated in. -Will Rogers

    The word ‘genius’ isn’t applicable in football. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein. -Joe Theisman

    Sometimes they write what I say and not what I mean. -Pedro Guerrero

    I’ve never had major knee surgery on any other part of my body. –Winston Bennet

    Most ignorance is vincible ignorance: we don’t know because we don’t want to know. -Aldous Huxley

      At first I was thinking no Yogisms? But then Yogisms make sense when you think about them. Like “Some guys don’t like to swing on 3 and 0 because they swing.” But today is a day I can relate to and will enjoy. Because “You can’t hit and think at the same time.”

      In a way, these quotes make sense too if you think about them, otherwise they wouldn’t be funny. I would’ve included some Yogisms (and Goldwynisms), but I’ve already done posts on them on SWI. Whether they still exist or not, I haven’t checked, but maybe I’ll do so and, if they’ve been deleted, repeat them here (as best I can) when my brain can’t think of anything else to write about.

      Personally, I notice that I can only be wrong when I’m sure I’m right.

        I think the same could be said of Tea Party members (except they never notice it).

      There’s a lot of unintentionally funny stuff here, most of which I hadn’t heard or seen before. I imagine that you are well aware of this, but, just to be sure all are, Gobel, Esar, and Rogers were not being stupid… they were intentionally being clever and funny.

      Keep up the good work!


    • mistermuse 6:37 pm on February 27, 2014 Permalink | Reply

      Right, Pat. Of course, Aldous Huxley wasn’t being unintentionally funny either – in fact, he wasn’t being funny at all. That’s why I saved his quote for last, to end on a serious note.

      Thanks for your comment.
