I thought the OP was looking for real examples as in "If it ain't Stiff it ain't worth a fuck" (which was priceless). Instead everyone came back with their version of "It looks just like a Telefunken U47" (which is a classic too).

Which is it????

Confused,

P.S. - the extra commas are there to "Walkenize" the quote.

And of course, let's not forget to toot our community horn:

"How was that take?"
"It sucked. Come on in."

Are there any more of those shirts available, BTW?
