Finally, "Expect nothing and ye shall not be disappointed".

Good one. I've heard it as The Eighth Beatitude: Blessed is he who expecteth nothing, for he shall not be disappointed.

Gary Larson is a genius......

Sounds like something my Auto Mechanics teacher would say. Kids can't be talked to in this manner anymore, they're too delicate........

We use to say this all the time when i worked as Sears with a slightly different slant.  "All of our customers bring us joy.  Some when they arrive others when they leave."

Steve, I'll join the Club. I'm a Cheeseburger guy too.

(and, Gary Larson saved my sanity in the 80's-90's)

Back in Viet Nam the pilots had a lot of things that we couldn't say plainly over the radio so someone invented the "Falcon codes".  I still have a copy around here someplace.  This was falcon code 269 except a little more explicit. "Excuse me sir, but I believe you have mistaken me for someone who gives a .....!"  I'm sure most of you can fill in the blank.  Yes, there were over 300 codes.

I once told a lady that I worked with..."I hate to see you go, but I love to watch you walk away..."

Can't do that anymore...

When I was a deputy sheriff, one of my favorite partners was a black deputy who would pull a coin from his pocket and say, "Here's a dime. Why don't you go call somebody who...." with an extremely evil smile. Imagine Dave Chappelle delivering the line and you'll be in the ballpark. 

Another of the best things he said was once, describing a delinquent taxes demand letter from the IRS. According to him, it read, "You best un-ass them 2300 balloons most rikki-tik, junior." :lol:

A co-worker of mine once owned a grocery store.

When he had to fire an employee, he would use this line.

"I don't know how we could ever get by without you, but starting tomorrow, we're going to try".  :lol:

Another favorite of Dad's: 

"You learn something new every day, if you're not careful!" :lol:

And another, which he'd often say as he beat me at Hearts: 

"Once again, skill and cunning beats ignorance and superstition." 

Later on, I'd hear that one put even better as: "Old age and treachery triumph over youth and enthusiasm." B)

Here's one that I remember from my dad.

"Pizza is like sex. When it's good, it's really good. When it's bad......It's still pretty good!" ;)

The corollary - There is no bad sex, just some better than others.
