"Bartisms"

Ferrari Forum is blessed with many members who are keen philosophers. Despite this, one clearly stands out as the first among equals - this man can only be Bart. So that his wisdom and insights are captured for future generations, I would like to ask everyone to list their favorite "Bartism":

Mine: Education is the key. Be smarter than everyone else

I agree with Boxer's pick. That is my favorite, but I'll look for a number two and post it.

My beast met and killed many butterflies in the desert. They had been eating yellow pollen. How do I know this? As they committed suicide on my car, a very bright yellow appear.

Too many Ferraris are not driven into butterflies. Bart - April 1, 2005

OK. The following are a few of my favorites:

(1) On his car:
"My machine is the fastest production road car of the 20th century.
Enought said." 7 May 2005

(2) On retirement:
"Kids will pay for my retirement. I want the children today to be well educated so they will make good money so the government will tax them for my needs." 13 Apr 05

(3) In response to Pete Cyr posting about his garage cleaning:
"Would you like to come over to my garage and do it again? You appeared to have fun doing it and I thought it would be nice to let you have some more enjoyment." 12 Apr 05 So thoughtful of you, Bart!

(4) A morbid side:
"I plan to have this as my retirement auto. They can bury me in it like my wife would like. " 7 Oct 2002

(5) Faithful:
"Me, I am too stupid to cheat on my woman...." 12 Dec 2004

(6) Drinking, Driving and Female Drivers:
"Why did I allow my woman to drive home tonight? Simple. I was drunk. She did OK but shifted at 2500 rpm. Rats.

I tried to tell her that the MB, which was passing her, should not be allowed to pass her at only 70 mph. Finally, she woke up and passed the MB. Going 50 mph in 6th gear is not my idea of driving my car correctly. Some of you may have a woman; therefore, you understand that nothing I say matters to her as to her ability to drive. Yipes!!!

Women should be obscene and not heard." 6 Nov 2004

Bart,

You are truly one of a kind. Thank you for your contributions. Dane

Imagine the book of quotes titled, "Bart: Greatest Hits."

We'd make millions.

The driver looked at me with disdain. His nose was so far up in the air, I saw his nose hairs.

Eating German cars is so much fun.
