Someone just gave me the idea (thanks Urban Hiker), just give your favourite SW quotes/jokes..I need to hear them all, so I can amuse myself using them.
I'll start..

"My friend is a radio announcer, when he walks under a bridge you can't hear him talk".

p.s, Steven! obviously.sorry.
I came, I saw, I concurred.....

    Funny man. I actually saw him in McDonald's in my hometown once. I was there with my girlfriend at the time, who we will call RottenVagiant for anonymity purposes. Anyways, I whisper to RottenVagiant: "hey that's Steven Wright", and she says "who?". So I repeat "Steven Wright...he's a famous comedian". She turns and looks at him, then turns back to me and yells "he's not famous!". Everyone heard, and I looked over at him and said "sorry, she drinks a lot" or something similar. He chuckled. I think he was just relieved that I didn't bug him for an autograph like the other McPatrons did.

    True story.

    I have two very rare photographs.
    One is a picture of Houdini locking his keys in his car.
    The other is a rare photograph of Norman Rockwell beating up a child.


    I planted some bird seed. A bird came up. Now I don't know what to feed it.

    The sky is falling...no, I'm tipping over backwards.

    [Referring to a glass of water:] I mixed this myself. Two parts H, one part O.
    I don't trust anybody!

    Last year I went fishing with Salvador Dali. He was using a dotted line. He
    caught every other fish.

    A cop stopped me for speeding. He said, "Why were you going so fast?" I said,
    "See this thing my foot is on? It's called an accelerator. When you push down
    on it, it sends more gas to the engine. The whole car just takes right off.
    And see this thing? This steers it."

    And this has always been my favorite:
    I love to go shopping. I love to freak out salespeople. They ask me if they
    can help me, and I say, "Have you got anything I'd like?" Then they ask me
    what size I need, and I say, "Extra medium."

    haha that one is amazing. I love Steven Wright. I'm not sure how long I could see him live before the delivery became wearing though :D

    The other day I accidently put my car key into the door of my house and it started up. So I decided to take it out for a drive. Cop pulled me over, said "where do you live", I said "right here".

    his delivery on that one kills me every time.

    How about the one where the lights fused in his apartment,
    "the only light I had was the flash on my camera, I took sixty pictures in the kitchen to make a sandwich.....the neighbours called the police, they thought there was lightning in my house".
