(The object of war is not to die for ur country but to make the other bastard die for his." - orcpac


Umm that is a misquote

General Patton said that in his speech to his beloved 3rd army and the true quote goes like this:

"No one wins a war by dieing for their country. You win a war by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his."

The correct quote, as seen above, is in Call of Duty. It shows "random" quotes when loading maps, that's one of the more heavily rotated ones.

Well, my favorite mis-quote is a horribly mangled version of The Smashing Pumpkin's "Everlasting Gaze".

I think it was posted by VampireChick, which made me want to projectile vomit.

haha. i think most of the quotes are mis-quotes. I think they're funny, but i don't put too much into their validity.
