Die NRA, eine Gruppe, die über Waffen entscheidet, wie wir anderen über Nutella. Ein bisschen ist gut, mehr ist besser und mir ist egal, wie schlecht es für mich ist, du musst es mir aus meinen kalten, toten Händen reißen.

The NRA, a group that feels about guns, the way the rest of us feels about Nutella. A little is good, more is better and you can tell me it's bad for me all you like, but you will pry it from my cold dead hands.

During WWII, we rushed into developing nuclear weapons, because we were trying to defeat the nazis, who - fun fact - pretty much all Americans agreed were bad at the time.

Abstinence is a healthy choice, that many teens will make. Either by choice, or, as I can attest, by circumstance.

Home improvement stores are a lethal combination of everything that can ruin a relationship: Spending money, reconciling tastes, long-term planning and fluorescent lighting.

9 out of the top 10 drug makers spent more on marketing, than they did on research. Drug companies are a bit like highschool boyfriends. They're much more concerned with getting inside you, than being effective once they're in there.

The ridiculousness of thinking that some sort of global Illuminati wrote down their plot for killing of 95 % of humanity on a giant granit post-it note and left their secret plan somewhere no conservative would ever find it: rural Georgia.

Machen wir weiter mit der Ukraine. Einem Land, von dem man, so wie beim menschlichen Blinddarm und Großmutter Mimi, nur hört, wenn etwas fürchterlich schief läuft.

Let's move on to Ukraine. A nation that, like the human appendix and your grandma Mimi, you only really hear about if something's gone horribly wrong.

The league should not ask anyone to miss the birth of their first child. That is a magic moment! Now, second child - that's negotiable. Same shit, different day. Third child - I'm not even sure the mother has to be there.

Basically, Amazon is the industry trend setter. They're the Michael Jackson of shipping: They're the best at what they do, everyone tries to imitate them, and nobody who learns a third thing about them is happy that they did.

Den Briten damit zu drohen, dass nur Salz und Essig auf den Tisch kommt, ist als würde man den Franzosen mit Wein und Baguette drohen, oder den Schweizern mit Schokolade und Nazigold.

Threatening the British by saying there will be only salt and vinegar on the table, is like threatening the French by saying there will only be wine and baguettes, or threatening the Swiss by saying there'll only be chocolate and Nazi gold.

David Cameron announced he is stepping down in the wake of a vote, which should make me happy, but it doesn’t. It’s like catching an ice cream cone out of the air, because a child has been hit by a car. I’ll eat it! But it’s tainted somehow.

Accusing America of creating Venzuela's crisis is about as fair as accusing O.J. Simpson of murdering Princess Diana. I'm not saying it would be completly out of character, it just happens to not be true in this particular instance.

It's interesting how your feelings on sueing the government can change a lot, based on who is saying it. It's like how, 'I'm getting off here', is a fine thing for someone to say, if they're standing next to the door of a train. But it's a rude thing to say, if they are masturbating on that same train.
