Ode to Jack Handy

In light of Jack’s wonderful suggestion yesterday, I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite Jack Handy quotes. On a side note, when I was a youth pastor, I used to put these in our announcement bulletins every week. Feel free to post your favorite!

  • “It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.”
  • “The next time I have meat and mashed potatoes, I think I’ll put a very large blob of potatoes on my plate with just a little piece of meat. And if someone asks me why I didn’t get more meat, I’ll just say, “Oh, you mean this?” and pull out a big piece of meat from inside the blob of potatoes, where I’ve hidden it. Good magic trick, huh?”
  • “Consider the daffodil. And while you’re doing that, I’ll be over here, looking through your stuff.”

  1. Haha. Nick, I love Jack Handy

    A few of my favorites.

    “The face of a child can say it all, especially the mouth part of the face.”

    “If you’re in a war, instead of throwing a hand grenade at the enemy, throw one of those small pumpkins. Maybe it’ll make everyone think how stupid war is, and while they are thinking, you can throw a real grenade at them.”

    “Ambition is like a frog sitting on a Venus’s-flytrap. The flytrap can bite and bite, but it won’t bother the frog because it only has little tiny plant teeth. But some other stuff could happen and it could be like ambition.”


  2. One of my favorites:

    “I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they’d never expect it.”


  3. Jack Handy quotes were used on Saturday Night Live in the early 90’s. They’re just random, funny quotes!!

    And I love those one’s you offered guys!! Too funny!


  4. This is one of my favorites:

    If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is “God is crying.” And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is “Probably because of something you did.””
