Good Quote: On Mirrors

"I had a parakeet that used to fly around the house and crash into these huge mirrors my mother put in. Ever heard of this interior design principle, that a mirror makes it seem like you have an entire other room? What kind of jerk walks up to a mirror and goes, 'Hey, look, there's a whole other room in there. There's a guy that looks just like me in there.' But the parakeet would fall for this. I'd let him out of his cage; he'd fly right into the mirror. And I'd always think, 'Even if he thinks the mirror is another room, why doesn't he at least try to avoid hitting the other parakeet?'"
