Me carrying a briefcase is like a hotdog wearing earrings.
These are bagpipes. I understand the inventor of the bagpipes was inspired when he saw a man carrying an indignant, asthmatic pig under his arm. Unfortunately, the man-made sound never equalled the purity of the sound achieved by the pig.
When you say you agree to a thing in principle you mean that you have not the slightest intention of carrying it out in practice.
Otto von Bismarck
The hedonistic lifestyle is difficult to achieve when you're still carrying your own gear. Trust me that you don't feel glamorous with a 60-pound amp in your arms; it's a lot less sexy than toting a vodka gimlet and impossible to do in heels.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
