Cynical Quotations

The French are said to eat more bread per capita of population than any other people, which is natural, for only they know how to make the stuff palatable [ed: and because the French have such picky palates that only they could tolerate such a diet].

— Ambrose Bierce (with addition by Guy Smith)
