There are some lines you hear or read that makes you do a double-take. You hear it or read it and say “what did he just say?”.
Here are some of my favorite phrases. Maybe you have heard these. It doesn’t matter who said them, I always chuckle thinking about them. Does anyone know who said them or where they came from? Which are actual quotes, which are written lines and which are non-sense?

I’ll post who said these later but feel free to guess. Do you have any double-take quotes?

  1. I’m pretty sure the first one is said by the government. *snort* Ha! Not! ๐Ÿ˜€

    “Norman Einstein”…Ha! I can’t stop laughing! ๐Ÿ˜€

    These are great…but, I’m not sure who actually said them first.

    I think Yogi Berra was famous for such lines. I like saying his “You better cut the pizza into 4 slices because I’m not hungry enough to eat 6”. ๐Ÿ˜€ and “I never said most of the things I said.” ๐Ÿ˜› “Pair up in 3’s.” Those are the only ones of his I can remember off the top of my head. ๐Ÿ™‚

    HUGS!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Or, George Bush’s quote about gynecologists:
