Favorite Bloom County quote
I've used this so many times it's amazing:

"...The narrow, suffocating zealotry masquerading as parenting in this country." - Steve Dallas

3. I LOVED that one!
I can picture the little granny smacking the general over the head with her cane now!

5. "'I lost the body,' says Bedfellow."
Milo questions Sen. Bedfellow about rumors that he was involved in Jimmy Hoffa's murder..."Did you drown him in the swimming pool?" So fucking hilarious, I had this strip magnetted to the fridge for most of my childhood, and laughed everytime I saw it.

7. I still like Opus' poetry the best
My personal fave:

How I love to watch the morn,
With golden sun that shines,
Up above to nicely warm
These frosty toes of mine.
The wind doth taste of bittersweet,
Like jasper wine and sugar,
I bet it's blown through others' feet,
Like those of...Caspar Weinberger.

*snort*

11. My wife's favorite -
It's been on our fridge for years -

"Attention, dark world of electronic gratification -
I would like to announce my intellectualization!
No more TV! No boob tube-a-roo!
'Twas turning my noodle to video goo!
Yes, there's something much better for smart chaps like me -
From what I have heard, it's known as 'to read'!

Books! I'll read books! Be they large or quite dinky!
Straight from the shelves all musty and stinky!
Faulkner! O'Neill! Twain and Saul Bellow!
I think I'll curl up with a few of those fellows!
Yes, I'll soon be well-read! Such a fab thing to be!
I've allowed plenty of time, at least an hour - or three."

8. MMPH ...
Context: Milo is running down the game plan for the debate. Usual stuff. Mudslinging, personal attacks, etc.

A lone voice shouts from the back "ISSUES!".

Last panel has Opus tied upside-down to a tree bearing a sign saying "Blasphemer".

All he can say is "MMPH...". So classic, I cut it out, and still have the yellowed newsprint copy taped to my workplace door.

10. Several...
"Arf arf arf bark bark bark!!"--the media, chasing after the Senator for "Girdlegate."

"Hi! Oh, gross..."--guest TV reporter Christie Brinkley, reporting an ax murder incident.

"Let 'em wonder." --Tess Turbo, commenting on whether or not her audience can sense her hidden, sensitive side. Opus, trying to mimic her onstage gyrations, punctuates it with an "Oof!"

"Someone get Cher out of the mayonaise!"--Opus, talking in his sleep

"Well, YOU can just rock me to sleep tonight!"--Binkley, responding to Milo's query as to whether or not Adam and Eve had navels

"Neither will God, Ma."--Steve, responding to his mother's revelation that she's accidentally married someone else while still being married to Steve's father, whom she thinks "won't be very happy about this."

"Hold it girls--contradiction city."--Steve's sister, sorrority girl extreme, jailed during a political demonstration.

13. Binkley reading the paper...
Starts choking and gagging, Milo gives him the Heimlech and Binkley shouts out, "The Nicaraguan rebels are the moral equivalant of our founding fathers! Star Wars will work! The president doesn't use grecian formula 44!" then says "I... I just couldn't swallow it all."

With just a few minor changes that's pretty much how I feel everyday.
