Words of Wisdom From Karl Pilkington

The funniest and most insightful person in the world
  1. Jellyfish are 97% water or something, so how much are they really doing? Just give them another 3%, make em water. It's more useful
  2. People who live in a glass house have to answer the door

  4. It annoys me that people like squirrels but not rats. At the end of the day they're the same thing, except squirrels have had a better upbringing
  5. If you can't do it, don't do it
  6. You've always got to expect the worse don't you? That's why we pop a seat belt on when we get in a car

  14. I'd rather live in a cave with a view of a palace than live in a palace with a view of a cave
    He said he'd also rather be ugly and look at good looking people than the other way around, how often do you look at yourself anyway?
  15. I've done some luxury flying which is brilliant.... but again, if the plane crashes, you're still dead. For that much money I'd want a little capsule that whizzed me off to safety if it was going to crash.
  16. They say it all started out with a Big Bang. But what I wonder is, was it actually a Big Bang or did it just seem big because there wasn't anything else to drown out the noise at the time?
  17. I found that being with happy positive people annoys me

  18. We've got a toaster and everything. So there is no reason for the wedding
    Weddings are more expensive than a toaster

  20. Everyone is living for everyone else now. They're doing stuff so they can tell other people about it. I don't get all that social media stuff, I've always got other things to do- odd jobs around the house. No one wants to hear about that.
