Weird Quotes From Famous People
Weird quotes from famous people come in all forms and sizes. These quotes are sometimes powerful enough to get a man fired, often come from anger and fear and sometimes are just displaced attempts at humor. From an actor speaking out against his former employers and a film director making a bad joke to two of the most iconic speakers of our time and a man who gets tongue tied on occasions, these are quotes that just make a person shake their head.
- Charlie Sheen – It’s hard to pin down a single weird Charlie Sheen quote. Since the actor was fired from “Two and a Half Men,” he has been a walking sound bite. He started out talking about how AA was a cult and that he didn’t need it because he was “winning.” He also claimed to be a “total bitchin’ rock star from Mars.” He then began ripping on his former co-stars and show runners, calling them “fools and trolls.” He finally referred to himself as a “warlock” and said his veins are full of “tiger blood.” You don’t get weird quotes from famous people any stranger than those from Charlie Sheen.
- Lars von Trier – Lars von Trier is one of the strangest, most provocative filmmakers working. However, he might have killed his career when he became the source of very weird quotes from famous people. While promoting his movie “Melancholia,” he began insulting a fellow filmmaker for being pretentious. He made a joke at her expense but then ended the statement with “OK, I’m a Nazi.” He was joking and he is not a Nazi but the comment earned him a quick ban from the Cannes Film Festival. In the same interview, he expressed a desire to make a hardcore porn starring Kirsten Dunst.
- Yogi Berra – Of all the weird quotes from famous people, none are more iconic than those by Yogi Berra. Some of the quotes he invented are used today in normal speech, such as “it ain’t over ‘til it’s over.” Others just make you shake your head in disbelief. Things like “I didn’t really say everything I said” to “You can observe a lot by watching,” Yogi Berra made the obvious lyrical. Who else can say “the future ain’t what it used to be” and make all the sense in the world?
- The Ultimate Warrior – Former professional wrestler, The Ultimate Warrior, opened his mouth and all that came out was weird quotes. From famous people in wrestling, none were as quizzical as the Warrior. The Warrior was meant to be an otherworldly fighting machine and often spoke of himself in the third person, as a supernatural being. A typical quote is "I look above to the gods, and when you fall below the skeletons of the Warriors past, the power of the Warriors will become the eighth Wonder of the World!" Into his career, he used large words, some out of context, and made himself sound smarter and superior to those around him. It made him look foolish in the end.
- George Bush – The best weird quotes from famous people came from the mouth of a former U.S. President, who often fumbled his words and misused phrases, creating unintentional humorous moments. From "I'm telling you there's an enemy that would like to attack America, Americans, again. There just is. That's the reality of the world. And I wish him all the very best" to "Throughout our history, the words of the Declaration have inspired immigrants from around the world to set sail to our shores. These immigrants have helped transform thirteen small colonies into a great and growing nation of more than 300 people," it doesn’t get better than George W. Bush.
