When I was in college, we were always keeping a Quote Board.  A new board for each semester, or event or trip.  Summer always yielded the best (read:  most ridiculous) quotes.  That tradition is about to continue here, with this running list.

“That Finding Nemo will get you every time!”  –my boss P on a report that some kids “got carried away” while watching a DVD at our program.  (All our movies must be PG-13 or less.)

“I didn’t know it was going to get dark tonight!” –me (In my defense, I was talking about the dark clouds from the impending storm, but of course it sounded totally stupid the minute it came out of my mouth.)
