Uncle Quotations

My uncle's dying wish - he wanted me on his lap. He was in the electric chair.
Rodney Dangerfield

I pray to be a good servant to God, a father, a husband, a son, a friend, a brother, an uncle, a good neighbor, a good leader to those who look up to me, a good follower to those who are serving God and doing the right thing.
Mark Wahlberg

Gilbert K. Chesterton

Jimmy Carter was - he still - he remains to this day America's most ex of ex-presidents. You just can't believe that we elected this doofus. He was a bright enough guy and sort of well-meaning. But he was about as prepared to be president of the United States as your goofy old uncle, you know, the one that memorises baseball statistics.
P. J. O'Rourke

My uncle Sammy was an angry man. He had printed on his tombstone: What are you looking at?
Margaret Smith
