Common sense tells us the earth is flat, the universe rotates around it, and everyone loves us.

Take my lariat — I can’t carry it.

Where there’s smoke, there’s coughing.

A theremin marathon.

American voters expect and respect deception from their politicians; candor is unprofessional.

See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil, what’s that smell?
