pjthompson: quotes (quotei)

Random quote of the day:

“Humorists are very commonly the youngest children in their families. When I was the littlest kid at our supper table, there was only one way I could get anybody’s attention, and that was to be funny. I had to specialize. I used to listen to radio comedians very intently, so I could learn how to make jokes. And that’s what my books are, now that I’m a grownup—mosaics of jokes.

—Kurt Vonnegut, interview, The Paris Review, Issue 69, Spring 1977
