Quote of the Day

Tragedy is if I cut my finger. Comedy is if I walk into an open sewer and die.

- Mel Brooks

[Update: Note the comments below. I think Daniel's version is correct.]

I think your quote is slight wrong. He said comedy is when you walk into the sewer.

I'm glad you mentioned that because that was the way I remembered the quote. It was listed the other way in Oxymoronica by Mardy Grothe.

I hope that the version you cited is the correct one. It has more punch and makes more sense.
