SOME AMUSING STEVE WRIGHT SAYINGS (and look-alikes)
From various sources, some from memory, grouped in a semi-random
--- big picture ---
A friend of mine once sent me a post card with a picture of the
entire planet Earth taken from space. On the back it said,
"Wish you were here."

I went to the museum where they had all the heads and arms from
the statues that are in all the other museums.
I like to go to art museums and name the untitled paintings...
Boy With Pail... Kitten On Fire.
--- restaurants ---
I went to a restaurant that serves "breakfast at any time". So I
ordered French Toast during the Renaissance.
I went to this restaurant last night that was set up like a big
buffet in the shape of an Ouija board. You'd think about what
kind of food you want, and the table would move across the floor
There's a pizza place near where I live that sells only slices.in
the back you can see a guy tossing a triangle in the air.
--- stores ---
I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything
I worked in a health food store once. A guy came in and asked me,
"If I melt dry ice, can I take a bath without getting wet?"
I went to a 7-11 and asked for a 2x4 and a box of 3x5's. The
clerk said, "ten-four."
I was in the grocery store. I saw a sign that said "pet
supplies". So I did. Then I went outside and saw a sign that
said "compact cars".
I went down the street to the 24-hour grocery. When I got there,
the guy was locking the front door. I said, "Hey, the sign says
you're open 24 hours." He said, "Yes, but not in a row."
I love to go shopping. I love to freak out salespeople. They ask
me if they can help me, and I say, "Have you got anything I'd
like?" Then they ask me what size I need, and I say, "Extra
I saw a small bottle of cologne and asked if it was for sale. She
said, "It's free with purchase." I asked her if anyone bought
I met this wonderful girl at Macy's. She was buying clothes and I
was putting Slinkies on the escalator.
There was a power outage at a department store yesterday. Twenty
people were trapped on the escalators.
I bought my brother some gift-wrap for Christmas. I took it to
the Gift Wrap department and told them to wrap it, but in a
different print so he would know when to stop unwrapping.
--- appliances ---
For my birthday I got a humidifier and a de-humidifier... I put
them in the same room and let them fight it out.
Ever notice how irons have a setting for *permanent* press? I
don't get it...
I couldn't find the remote control to the remote control.
I invented the cordless extension cord.
--- telephones ---
I saw a close friend of mine the other day... He said, "Stephen,
why haven't you called me?" I said, "I can't call everyone I
want. My new phone has no five on it." He said, "How long have
you had it?" I said, "I don't know... my calendar has no sevens
I plugged my phone in where the blender used to be. I called
someone. They went "Aaaaahhhh..."
Today I dialed a wrong number... The other person said, "Hello?"
and I said, "Hello, could I speak to Joey?"... They said, "Uh...
I don't think so... he's only 2 months old." I said, "I'll wait."
I don't like the sound of my phone ringing so I put my phone
inside my fish tank. I can't hear it, but every time I get a call
I see the fish go like this <<<>>><<>><<<<. I go down to the pet
store -- "Gimme another ten guppies, I got a lotta calls
--- apartments ---
My roommate got a pet elephant. Then it got lost. It's in the
I installed a skylight in my apartment.... The people who live
above me are furious!
All of the people in my building are insane. The guy above me
designs synthetic hairballs for ceramic cats. The lady across the
hall tried to rob a department store... with a pricing gun...
She said, "Give me all of the money in the vault, or I'm marking
down everything in the store."
While I was gone, somebody rearranged on the furniture in my
bedroom. They put it in *exactly* the same place it was. When I
told my roommate, he said: "Do I know you?"
--- houses ---
In my house there's this light switch that doesn't do anything.
Every so often I would flick it on and off just to check.
Yesterday, I got a call from a woman in Germany. She said, "Cut
Doing a little work around the house. I put fake brick wallpaper
over a real brick wall, just so I'd be the only one who knew.
People come over and I'm gonna say, "Go ahead, touch it... it
In my house on the ceilings I have paintings of the rooms above...
so I never have to go upstairs.
One time the power went out in my house and I had to use the flash
on my camera to see my way around. I made a sandwich and took
fifty pictures of my face. The neighbors thought there was
lightning in my house.
All the plants in my house are dead -- I shot them last night. I
was teasing them by watering them with ice cubes.
I have a microwave fireplace in my house... The other night I
laid down in front of the fire for the evening in two minutes.
Winny and I lived in a house that ran on static electricity... If
you wanted to run the blender, you had to rub balloons on your
head. If you wanted to cook, you had to pull off a sweater real
I bought a house, on a one-way dead-end road. I don't know how I
I went to the hardware store and bought some used paint. It was
in the shape of a house. I also bought some batteries, but they
weren't included. So I had to buy them again.
My house is made out of balsa wood, so when I want to scare the
neighborhood kids I lift it over my head and tell them to get out
of my yard or I'll throw it at them.
The other night I came home late, and tried to unlock my house
with my car keys. I started the house up. So, I drove it around
for a while. I was speeding, and a cop pulled me over. He asked
where I lived. I said, "right here, officer". Later, I parked it
on the freeway, got out, and yelled at all the cars, "Get out of
My house is on the median strip of a highway. You don't really
notice, except I have to leave the driveway doing 60 MPH.
--- cars and driving ---
For a while I didn't have a car... I had a helicopter... no
place to park it, so I just tied it to a lamp post and left it
running... (slow glance upward)
I hooked up my accelerator pedal in my car to my brake lights. I
hit the gas, people behind me stop, and I'm gone.
I replaced the headlights in my car with strobe lights, so it
looks like I'm the only one moving.
I play the harmonica. The only way I can play is if I get my car
going really fast, and stick it out the window.
I put a new engine in my car, but forgot to take the old one out.
Now my car goes 500 miles per hour. The harmonica sounds
I watched the Indy 500, and I was thinking that if they left
earlier they wouldn't have to go so fast.
I had to stop driving my car for a while... the tires got dizzy.
My neighbor has a circular driveway... he can't get out.
I used to work in a fire hydrant factory. You couldn't park
anywhere near the place.
I have an answering machine in my car. It says, "I'm home now.
But leave a message and I'll call when I'm out."
Last year we drove across the country. We switched on the
driving... every half mile... We had one cassette tape to listen
to on the entire trip... I don't remember what it was.
I saw a sign: "Rest Area 25 Miles". That's pretty big. Some
people must be really tired.
A cop stopped me for speeding. He said, "Why were you going so
fast?" I said, "See this thing my foot is on? It's called an
accelerator. When you push down on it, it sends more gas to the
engine. The whole car just takes right off. And see this thing?
This steers it."
I was going 70 miles an hour and got stopped by a cop who said,
"Do you know the speed limit is 55 miles per hour?" "Yes,
officer, but I wasn't going to be out that long..."
One time a cop pulled me over for running a stop sign. He said,
"Didn't you see the stop sign?" I said, "Yeah, but I don't
believe everything I read."
I got my driver's license photo taken out of focus on purpose. Now
when I get pulled over the cop looks at it (moving it nearer and
farther, trying to see it clearly)... and says, "Here, you can
The judge asked, "What do you plead?" I said, "Insanity, your
honour, who in their right mind would park in the passing lane?"
When I get real bored, I like to drive downtown and get a great
parking spot, then sit in my car and count how many people ask me
if I'm leaving.
Yesterday I parked my car in a tow-away zone... when I came back
the entire area was missing.
--- sleeping ---
I can remember the first time I had to go to sleep. Mom said,
"Steven, time to go to sleep." I said, "But I don't know how."
She said, "It's real easy. Just go down to the end of tired and
hang a left." So I went down to the end of tired, and just out of
curiosity I hung a right. My mother was there, and she said "I
thought I told you to go to sleep."
I hate it when my foot falls asleep during the day because that
means it's going to be up all night.
When I woke up this morning my girlfriend asked me, "Did you sleep
good?" I said, "No, I made a few mistakes."
I was trying to daydream, but my mind kept wandering.
One night I walked home very late and fell asleep in somebody's
satellite dish. My dreams were showing up on TV's all over the
My girlfriend does her nails with white-out. When she's asleep, I
go over there and write misspelled words on them.
--- socks ---
I got up one morning and couldn't find my socks, so I called
Information. She said, "Hello, Information." I said, "I can't
find my socks." She said, "They're behind the couch." And they
I went into this bar and sat down next to a pretty girl. She
looked at me and said, "Hey, you have two different colored socks
on." I said, "Yeah, I know, but to me they're the same because I
go by thickness."
--- records ---
I bought a self learning record to learn Spanish. I turned it on
and went to sleep; the record got stuck. The next day I could
only stutter in Spanish.
I was going to tape some records onto a cassette, but I got the
wires backwards. I erased all of the records. When I returned
them to my friend, he said, "Hey, these records are all blank."
--- fishing ---
Last year I went fishing with Salvador Dali. He was using a
dotted line. He caught every other fish.
There's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore
looking like an idiot.
--- dogs ---
I bought a dog the other day... I named him Stay. It's fun to
call him... "Come here, Stay! Come here, Stay!" He went insane.
Now he just ignores me and keeps typing.
I put contact lenses in my dog's eyes. They had little pictures
of cats on them. Then I took one out and he ran around in
The other day, I was walking my dog around my building... on the
ledge. Some people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of
I spilled spot remover on my dog. He's gone now.

H, one part O. I don't trust anybody!

up his glass of water from the stool)... I like to live on the
I bought some powdered water, but I don't know what to add to it.
--- childhood ---
I was born by Caesarian section... but not so you'd notice. It's
just that when I leave a house, I go out through the window.
When I was little, my grandfather used to make me stand in a
closet for five minutes without moving. He said it was elevator
I didn't get a toy train like the other kids. I got a toy subway
instead. You couldn't see anything, but every now and then you'd
hear this rumbling noise go by.
When I was a kid, I went to the store and asked the guy, "Do you
have any toy train schedules?"
When I was a little kid we had a sand box. It was a quicksand
box. I was an only child... eventually.
When I was five years old I was on a merry go round. There was a
gunshot nearby. The horses stampeded. There I was running down
the street on a purple wooden horse.
When I was eight, I played Little League. I was on first; I stole
third; I went straight across. Earlier that week, I learned that
the shortest distance between two points was a direct line. I
took advantage of that knowledge.
I used to own an ant farm but had to give it up. I couldn't find
tractors small enough to fit it.
My friend Winnie is a procrastinator. He didn't get his birthmark
until he was eight years old.
My school colors were clear. We used to say, "I'm not naked, I'm
in the band."
When I have a kid, I want to buy one of those strollers for twins.
Then put the kid in and run around, looking frantic. When he gets
older, I'd tell him he used to have a brother, but he didn't obey.
Babies don't need a vacation, but I still see them at the beach...
it pisses me off! I'll go over to a little baby and say, "What
are you doing here? You haven't worked a day in your life!"
My friend has a baby. I'm recording all the noises he makes so
later I can ask him what he meant.
--- not-all-there ---
You know how it is when you're reading a book and falling asleep,
you're reading, reading... and all of a sudden you notice your
eyes are closed? I'm like that all the time.
Well, you know when you're rocking in a rocking chair, and you go
so far that you almost fall over backwards, but at the last
instant you catch yourself? That's how I feel all the time.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I
think I've forgotten this before.
Lots of comedians have people they try to mimic. I mimic my
I got a new shadow. I had to get rid of the other one... it
wasn't doing what I was doing.
If you can't hear me, it's because I'm in parentheses.
Four years ago... no, it was yesterday. Today I... No, that
wasn't me. Sometimes I... No, I don't.
--- suicide ---
I once tried to commit suicide by jumping off a building... I
changed my mind at the last minute, so I just flipped over and
landed on my feet. Two little kittens nearby saw what happened
and one turned to the other and said, "See, that's how it's done."
I was going to commit suicide the other day, but I must not have
been serious because I brought a beach towel.
--- books ---
I was reading the dictionary. I thought it was a poem about
What's another word for Thesaurus?
Why is the alphabet in that order? Is it because of that song?

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
--- miscellaneous ---
My dental hygienist is cute. Every time I visit, I eat a whole
package of Oreo cookies while waiting in the lobby. Sometimes she
has to cancel the rest of the afternoon's appointments.
One day I got on the usual bus, and when I stepped in, I saw the
most gorgeous blond Chinese girl... I sat beside her. I said,
"Hi," and she said, "Hi," and then I said, "Nice day, isn't it?,"
and she said, "I saw my analyst today and he says I have a
problem." So I asked, "What's the problem?" She replied, "I
can't tell you. I don't even know you..." I said, "Well
sometimes it's good to tell your problems to a perfect stranger on
a bus." So she said, "Well, my analyst said I'm a nymphomaniac
and I only like Jewish cowboys... by the way, my name is Denise."
I said, "Hello, Denise. My name is Bucky Goldstein..."
I got into an elevator at work and this man followed in after
me... I pushed "1" and he just stood there... I said, "Hi, where
you going?" He said, "Phoenix." So I pushed Phoenix. A few
seconds later the doors opened, two tumbleweeds blew in...we were
in downtown Phoenix. I looked at him and said, "You know, you're
the kind of guy I want to hang around with." We got into his car
and drove out to his shack in the desert. Then the phone rang.
He said, "You get it." I picked it up and said, "Hello?"... The
other side said, "Is this Steven Wright?"... I said, "Yes..."
The guy said, "Hi, I'm Mr.Jones, the student loan director from
your bank. It seems you have missed your last 17 payments, and
the university you attended said that they received none of the
$17,000 we loaned you. We would just like to know what happened
to the money?" I said, "Mr. Jones, I'll give it to you straight.

that's much better...
I had a friend who was a clown. When he died, all his friends
went to the funeral in one car.
My girlfriend and I went on a picnic. I don't know how she did
it, but she got poison ivy on the brain. When it itched, the only
way she could scratch it was to think about sandpaper.
I'd like to sing you a song now about my old girlfriend. It's
called, "They'll Find Her When the Leaves Blow Away 'Cause I'm Not
Raking 'Til Spring."

their feet, what happen if you strap toast on the back of a cat
and drop it?

Every so often, I like to go to the window, look up, and smile for

weatherman on TV was confused. "It was supposed to be hot today."
I was in a job interview and I opened a book and started reading.
Then I said to the guy, "Let me ask you a question. If you are in
a spaceship that is traveling at the speed of light, and you turn
on the headlights, does anything happen?" He said, "I don't know."
I said, "I don't want your job."
SIMILARITY / ANALOGY:

Two babies were born on the same day at the same hospital. They
lay there and looked at each other. Their families came and took

in the same hospital, on their deathbeds, next to each other. One
of them looked at the other and said, "So. What did you think?"
My grandfather gave me a watch. It doesn't have any hands or
numbers. He says it's very accurate. I asked him what time it
was. You can guess what he told me.
