Citations absurdes, vachardes etc.

Dans un autre fil, Zelda remarque une de mes citations préférées de WC Fields :
"Quelqu'un qui déteste les chiens et les enfants ne peut être vraiment méchant"
["Anyone who hates children and dogs can't be all bad" in ze text].
J'adore ce genre de remarques teigneuses ou absurdes...
Par exemple, dans un polaR de Ian Rankin, description d'une fille très maigre : "I've seen more meat on a butcher's pencil!"

Si ça vous dit...

bon elle est connue mais j'avoue une petite faiblesse pour la réplique de de Gaulle au cri "mort aux cons" : "vaste programme."

merci ygg pour ce fil ! j'en ai d'autres certainement, même si elles m'échappent pour l'instant...

florence, elle est bien de groucho, ta citation ; on pourrait compiler un livre gigantesque rien qu'avec les siennes !

Une que j'aime bien et que je replace souvent : "Vous êtes capables du meilleur comme du pire, mais c'est dans le pire que vous êtes les meilleurs !"

C'est rare que je l'emploie de façon vacharde toutefois...

Il y en a une que j'ai entendue attribuer à Napoléon, mais que je n'ai jamais pu vérifier. Je ne me souviens pas des termes exacts, mais c'était un truc du genre :

"Inutile de voir des complots partout, quand l'incompétence peut expliquer tant de choses."

Si quelqu'un a la citation exacte, ça m'arrangerait, j'aimerais tant pouvoir la mettre dans ma signature

haha ! j'adore les deux. florence, je connais la version « N’attribuez jamais à la malveillance ce qui peut s’expliquer par la stupidité » mais jamais attribuée deux fois à la même personne. mais j'aime beacoup la tienne. merci gurvan pour ce lien, ce blog a l'air passionnant d'après mon premier survol ! bookmarké ; j'y retournerai.

jolie trouvaille alors. bon c'est un peu hors sujet pour ce fil (quoique... peut-être pas tant que ça...) j'adore ce site : expressio.fr, il donne l'explication et l'origine (lorsqu'elle est connue...) de tout plein d'expressions, dont certaines sont pour le moins inattendues... même pour une expression que tout le monde connaît c'est marrant de lire l'explication, toujours sur un ton léger voire grivois, et surtout les commentaires, qui sont généralement truffés de jeux de mots douteux (ce sont les meilleurs. ).

petit exemple :

Quote:
"Expression :
« Il ne faut pas prendre les enfants du bon dieu pour des canards sauvages ! »

Signification :
Il ne faut pas prendre les gens pour des imbéciles.
Il ne faut pas se moquer des gens.

Origine :
Qu'appelle-t-on les enfants du bon dieu ? Certaines personnes croient qu'il s'agit des anges !
Si c'était le cas, un chasseur de canards ayant oublié ses lunettes pourrait se méprendre et, un soir d'hiver, lors d'un passage à basse altitude d'un nuage d'anges migrateurs au-dessus de la toundra amazonienne, pourrait par hasard en mettre un au tapis.
Notez que cette bavure pourrait grandement lui faciliter une de ces très nombreuses recettes de cuisine où, après avoir mis ensemble plusieurs ingrédients dans un récipient, on met l'ange.

Bon, trêve de jeux de mots douteux et indignes de moi (quoique...), revenons à nos canards.
Les enfants du bon dieu, ce ne sont certainement pas des anges, puisque ce sont les hommes. C'est-à-dire vous, moi, ma soeur qui est aussi mon masseur, le policier qui vient de me coller une prune pour stationnement illégal et que je hais, le voisin du dessus qui écoute du rap à longueur de journée sans savoir que le bouton du volume peut aussi se tourner vers la gauche, ou ma très charmante voisine qui ne vit malheureusement pas seule.

Dans l'expression, les enfants du bon dieu, ce sont les hommes 'dignes de ce nom', donc intelligents, honnêtes et respectueux de leur prochain, qui sont opposés à des volatiles, supposés être de fieffés imbéciles.
Son origine exacte étant inconnue, le choix du canard sauvage au lieu du piaf, du macareux moine () ou de l'albatros à sourcils noirs () reste inexpliqué.

Mais si son histoire n'est pas connue, cette expression a tout de même été utilisée par des personnes relativement célèbres comme Antoine Blondin (), Michel Audiard () ou le Général de Gaulle."
"on met l'ange" (je sais, elle est débile, et pourtant à chaque fois je me marre !)

les commentaires sur cette explication valent le détour aussi. je vous donne juste le premier pour vous mettre l'eau à la bouche :

"Corollaire: "Il ne faut pas prendre les fils de Satan pour des poules d'élevage""
