“Dang! Don’t you know that home is where you make it?” – From the movie “Joe Dirt”…, and other inspiring quotes for our lives!     

It’s funny how some words resonate with some but not with others.

It’s funny how a phrase by someone will stick with some people their entire lives, while the same phrase vanishes without ever being considered by others.

In most cases, these words of wisdom don’t require any special talent, gift or intellect.

In most cases, these words are just someone stating the obvious.

Drum roll please…,

Lastly, I’m going to leave you with a short conversation between Joe Dirt and his new found friend, Kicking Wing, who owns a fireworks stand out in the desert, from the movie Joe Dirt, 2001:

Joe: “So you’re gonna tell me that you don’t have no black cats, roman candles, or screaming mimis?”

Kicking Wing: “No.”

Joe: “Oh come on, man. You don’t got no lady fingers, fuzz buttles, snicker bombs, church burners, finger blasters, gut busters, zippity do das, or crap flappers?”

Kicking Wing: “No, I don’t.”

Joe: “You’re gonna stand there, owning a fireworks stand, and tell me you don’t have no whistling bungholes, no spleen splitters, whisker biscuits, honkey lighters, hüsker düs, hüsker don’ts, cherry bombs, nipsy daisers, with or without the scooter stick…or one single whistling kitty chaser?”

Kicking Wing: “No…, because snakes and sparklers are the only ones I like.”

Joe: “Well that might be your problem. It’s not what you like, it’s the consumer!”
