In the last few days since the passing of Robin Williams the media focus has been on his battles with substance abuse and depression. While these are no doubt important aspects of Williams’  character, and if discussing them encourages those who face similar problems to seek help then I’m all in favor. But I think we should be careful not to lose sight of what made Williams the star he was, his sense of humor. To that end here are a few of his more memorable quips.


Talking  about having a colonoscopy: “I didn’t mind the camera; it was the crew that was painful.”


“Being a functioning alcoholic is kind of like being a paraplegic lap dancer — you can do it, just not as well as the others, really.”


“My God. We’ve had cloning in the South for years. It’s called cousins.”


“Do you think God gets stoned? I think so… look at the platypus.”

“God gave men both a penis and a brain, but unfortunately not enough blood supply to run both at the same time.”

On the immaculate conception:The night that Mary said to Joe: “Joe, I’m pregnant.”

And Joe went: “Holy mother of God,” and she went: “You’re right!”

“Oh Jesus Christ.”

“What a great name Joe! That is so much better than Schmul.”
