“Sometimes she looks like a primary schoolgirl and sometimes a pensioner going shopping.” – The North Korean Foreign Ministry in a written statement. That is to say, premeditated. Proofread. The opposite of impromptu misspeech. (Hopefully they mean some hypothetical schoolgirl and not 60s coke-bottle glasses schoolgirl.)
“He’s never commented about profitability in a public setting! This is historic! We’ve never once had to think like this.” – Conde Nast employees squawking to the New York Observer after publisher Chuck Townsend told them they’d actually have to make money now.
“Our first day back was Wednesday and it was — I’m going to keep saying this because I hope it embarrasses them — a seventeen-hour day, which I think is cruel and mean.” – Katherine Heigl complains about a long day on Grey’s Anatomy, a day that producers painstakingly rearranged (to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars) to accommodate her movie promotion schedule.

“And getting up here I say it is the best road trip in America soaring through nature’s finest show. Denali, the great one, soaring under the midnight sun. And then the extremes.

And then in the summertime such extreme summertime about a hundred and fifty degrees hotter than just some months ago, than just some months from now, with fireweed blooming along the frost heaves and merciless rivers that are rushing and carving and reminding us that here, Mother Nature wins. It is as throughout all Alaska that big wild good life teeming along the road that is north to the future.” – Former Gov. Sarah Palin’s farewell speech, exemplary of her daily struggle with the english language.
