fRoots have sent me a couple of compilations of this type and I plan to open my review by recycling the above quote. Funny thing is I feel a bit dishonest about plagerising myself and I'm not sure why.


It's cultural, Jamie. Just remember: you're allowed to be happy.

Hmm, you may be onto something there Adam. After all, today is Yom Kippur.

In Broadway Danny Rose Woody Allen's character tells Mia Farrow's that he feels guilty about everything and that we're all guilty in the eyes of god.
"Do you believe in god?" she asks.
"No," he replies. "But I feel guilty about that too."

Given the subsequent revelations about his private life, I think I ought to feel guilty about finding some of Woody Allen's stuff funny. But the fact that I don't, makes me feel guilty.

Jamele, if you don't plagiarise your own quote some other unscrupulous momzer will.
