Quotes That Will Live Forever [Jul. 23rd, 2004|03:14 pm]
Young Geoffrey

Nikita Krushchev, during a trip to the Grand Canyon, and asked what it made him of:

"It makes me think of sex. Everything makes me think about sex."

Note for the young'uns: Nikita was then Chairman of the Soviet Communist Party and had his finger on the other button.

I think I came across that quote ... somewhere, somewhen, but I laughed out loud when I read it yesterday. Although, I confess that the thought of seeing Kruschev having sex gives me the shivers.

That made me laugh.

I find it heartening and creepy at the same time.

Sex is a bloody powerful drive, isn't it? Speaking of creepy, it disturbs me to wonder if everything reminds Santa Claus of sex.
