Hearing people say words is a normal part of life in our hectic modern world. Unless you’re completely deaf. I guess then it’d probably be pretty shocking. Well, unless you’re a deaf schizophrenic. Then you might not be too dismayed at hearing a disembodied voice. Unless of course it was the voice of that goodnatured-but-emptyheaded coworker who constantly says “Are we havin’ fun yet?” without realizing it makes everyone absolutely despise them.
Although…what if you were a schizophrenic who’s been deaf since birth? Then you wouldn’t even know what human speech sounds like. So if the voice of, say, Micheal Landon popped into your head one morning and started saying things like “Chew on that baby’s arm”, “Those dogs are laughing at you again”, or “You should probably masturbate into that aquarium” it would just sound like gibberish.
You wouldn’t even know it was the voice of the dreamy-eyed heartthrob who played “Pa” on Little House on The Prairie you were hearing, so the fear you felt wouldn’t even be mitigated by whatever fond childhood memories would’ve been conjured up by hearing his voice. Anyway, just some food for thought.
Celebrity last words!

“The narrator in ‘Hush Little Baby’ has a lot to learn when it comes to bribing children. Yeah, offer the kid a ring and a mirror, that’ll shut him up. And seriously, a horse-and-cart? Oh, is the baby is a peasant in medieval France? Because if not: Terrible gift.
“I’ve always wondered if anyone ever had the nickname “Suitcase”. Like: Mike ‘The Suitcase’ Winslow or something like that. I mean, it doesn’t seem particularly cool or anything, I just wonder, you know?”
Russian Physicist, Nobel Prize Winner
“Maybe I’ll become a reverse flasher….I’ll go to the park, stand in front of a couple young girls, and then slowly put on a warm coat.”
“Cutting your arms is kind of a cryptic cry for help. I wonder if anyone ever thought to actually spell out ‘HELP’ with the cuts. That’s a good tip.”

“Finding a dead body is always traumatic, but sometimes you get lucky when the corpse you stumble across happens to be wearing sunglasses. Obviously it’s still not the best experience, but for some reason it seems to soften the blow.
Like, imagine opening the bathroom door and finding your great uncle dead on the toilet. Horrifying, right? But now, imagine the same scenario, but this time he’s wearing some cool wraparound shades. See? Not quite as bad.”
United States Senator
“One thing that always annoys me in pornography is when they zoom in on one of the guy’s faces. Who watches porn to see some guy’s face? I can see that on the street.”
SAMMY DAVIS JR.
Actor, Dancer, and Singer
“I’ve always said that there are way too many towns named Stillwater. If you ask me, they should change some of them to be named ‘Toone’s Alley’ instead. That’s a much better name.”
Comedian and Actor
“One thing you don’t often see is a black ghost. Well I guess Ghost Dad was black, but then again that movie was probably fiction.”
Comedian and Actor
“They say living well is the best revenge, but I don’t know about that. Torture seems like it’d be pretty good revenge too.”
RICHARD M. NIXON
