i once had to give an oral reading of my dissertation performance thesis on all restrictions being valuable to the creation of interesting theatre.

Which meant i got to read out to a panel of judges the line:

"And i quote, open quote, Quote me as saying I was mis-quoted, end quote, Groucho Marx 1938"


also to get in that joke (masquerading as a very serious illustration of my entire premise) i had to track down a published book of "collected quotes" in print that contained the aforementioned quote.

@mxsiege CJ, I impressed by your dedication to a great bit and I doff my hat to you

@Garrison i dont know why my professors were concerned i might fail my degree, i took things very seriously.
