Quotes: Mock the Week
Andy Parsons: (Re: Countdown) "I think Dictionary Corner would be quite happy to be unionised, because it is in fact a nine letter word".

Spinning The News

(Frankie on gay rights)
"(Concerning gay adoption) I'd have loved to have had a gay dad. You know how in the playgrounds it's always 'my dad will batter your dad', or 'my dad will outrun your dad'? 'Hey! My dad will shag your dad!... And your dad will enjoy it!"

(Stuart Francis on schooling)
"You are looking at a very proud Canadian, who is very proud of the education system in Canadia... I was horrible in school, I failed math so many times that I can't even count... I preferred French over Chemistry, because the Chemistry teacher and I just didn't have any, eh... rapport... One teacher told me I'd be a better student if I didn't spend so much time flirting, I immediately jumped off his lap... One teacher used to always say I wasn't very observant, but you know what? That was his or her opinion... I was going to join the debating team, but someone talked me out of it... In high school I was voted Most Likely To... Reminisce..." *trails off*

(Ed on piracy)
"Ooh, this music's so funky it makes me want to obey the law."
