"As a father, ah, I eagerly await my daughter’s sixteenth birthday when she can get her driver’s license, and for the same reason most fathers do. Because, she can drive me from bar to bar and then home again while I explore the vagaries of intoxication. Girls do the best driving job in regards this exacting responsibility. Teenage boys tend to be too irresponsible."
"O’Brien Singh invented the Female Shower Turban. It’s made out of a simple bath towel -- who would have figured it when looking at a cotton gin? Huh? Well: O’Brien Singh was a Sikh from India, a plumber/cab driver in Charleston, SC, who never got a buck or a rupee for his gift to American women. But, his attitude was this: since he was married for twenty-two years to a lady from Miles and Miles of Rhode Island he more than got his money’s worth -- she was from Warwick after all -- and everything was fair and square."
