I Am Not A Corpse!
& Other Quotes Never Actually SaidBook - 1996
A hilarious compendium of fictional quotes--that weren't said but should have been--by famous people throughout time, compiled by a well-known political humorist. Just because the history books didn't record it doesn't mean it didn't happen. It's entirely plausible, for instance, that Aaron, fed up with his older brother's miracles, could have blurted out the following: "Moses this. Moses that. Moses! Moses! Moses!" Or that Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, following the Bay of Pigs invasion, sent a telegram to JFK stating, "Close but no cigar." These and many other outrageous sayings that could have come from the mouths of well-known people--from U.S. presidents to ancient philosophers--are collected inI Am Not A Corpse! With no regard for historical accuracy and a gift for refreshingly original humor, Mark Katz offers the world a quote book unlike any other.
