## Favorite Quotes By Wikipedians

• Note for future reference: a Google search of "prison dwarf" does not turn up anything useful. --Fastfission 19:45, 20 July 2005 (UTC)
• (When asked the difference between a "Complaint Dept." and "Customer Service") - The diff is much like that between the old U.S. War Department and the newer U.S. Department of Defense. By pretending that customers don't have complaints and countries don't make war, they make it sound like we live in a fairy land filled with care bears who give strangers flowers all the time.
