Paul Lynde quotes :
Politicians... talk in generalities and lies, and I think they've caused all our grief. They're so awful, they're really funny. I hate thinking this because my dad loved politics.Paul Lynde
My dad was a ham, too. He could sell those women anything. Of all his sons, I was the only one he could trust to sell as well as he could. I was proud of that.Paul Lynde
I don't know who the hell Paul Lynde is, or why he's funny, and I prefer it to be a mystery to me.Paul Lynde
