Some of the difficult words I know are: sordid, disastrous, immaculate, pathetic and devastating. There aren’t really many people who say I’m precocious. The problem is I don’t know that many people. I know maybe thirteen or fourteen people and four of them say I’m precocious.”
“When we run out of body parts we look up new ones in a book that has pictures of all of them, even the prostate and the medulla oblongata.
