but I don't care too much for money

I always preferred to think of it as "I don't care for too much money", sung with a Spanish accent. I don't know why.

Paul McCartney did express some displeasure at those who changed the lyrics to "Yesterday". Instead of "I said something wrong", they changed it to something like "I must've done something wrong". Paul saw it as the narrator as equivocating, not completely owning up to his mistake.

Returning to quotable quotes, I'll share one since until now it's nowhere on the Internet. Before I was a teenager, in the 70s, an edition of Mad Magazine had a panel mocking modern art, where the painter gave the following gem while explaining his painting to an on-looker. It was so choice that I decided to commit it to memory, which I'm glad I did:

"It symbolizes man's inner quest for himself as he listens to the vibrations of two molecules in communion with a yak."

___________


America is a country where a great many people believe that the moon landings were faked



My wife has a niece who believes that, just because it looks like you can see a flag waving in one of the videos. She also believes the dinosaurs left about ten thousand years ago. She has a college degree but these days that means almost nothing. She isn't dumb, but the only thing she's really good at is having babies. She's had five so far.

Yes, never underestimate the lack of intelligence of the American people.

Be it moon landing, dinosaurs, or stolen election: idiocy seems to be running rampant.

There are three types of people in the world: those who can count, and those who can't.
May the cards fall in your favor.
