I don't generally read science fiction, but a friend recently sent me a copy of a favourite book to help me through my convalescence: Callahan's Key by Spider Robinson. I quite enjoyed the humour, including the Dan Quayle quote featured at the beginning of each chapter (the book is set in 1989 when Quayle was relevant). While I, up here in Canada, was basically aware of his reputation, I had no idea that his sayings were so weird and funny. I've posted some of my faves below, and there are more at The Quotations Page and Brainy Quote.
