[Classic] Dave Barry

“‘Brain sludge’ is a term coined by leading scientists to describe the vast collection of moronic things that your brain chooses to remember instead of useful information. For example: Take any group of one hundred average Americans, and sing to them, ‘Come and listen to my story ’bout a man named Jed.’ At least ninety-seven of them will immediately sing: ‘A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed.’ They will sing this even if they are attending a funeral. They can’t help it.”
