Spoken by an attractive, thirty-ish, female narrator on the reality-TV
show, It Takes a Killer:

“He told his wife that the only reason he married her was so that he could
have ‘a steady piece of ass’.”

Quote or no, is there nothing that can’t be said on the public airwaves
during prime time by anybody?! She could have phrased that as “sex on a
regular basis.”


All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
