"There are a lot of ‘Irish’ pubs in America, but they just don’t have the ‘craic.’ You know the word ‘craic,’ don’t you? Craic is a special fun atmosphere that Irish people can produce. Some Irish people have more craic than others. There are all kinds of craic. There’s good craic, mighty craic, savage craic, and deadly craic. Then there are boring people who have no fun inside of them. We call that minus craic."

"So what separates a great barber from an average barber?" “Well, I can only speak from my own experience. But I learned a lot of rules in school, and I didn’t really get good until I had the confidence to break them.”

"It’s a Spaghetti Monster pin." “How would you describe the Spaghetti Monster?” “It’s a semi-serious, semi-parody religion. If you substitute the word ‘Spaghetti Monster’ for the word God, it exposes religion to critical thinking. Because of the cultural reverence for the word ‘God,’ so much of religion flies under the radar of critical thinking. But if you think about it— the word ‘God’ is just a noise we make, just like ‘Spaghetti Monster’ is a noise. Both are placeholders for a concept, and neither is more valid than the other. The whole point of the Spaghetti Monster is not necessarily to say that God isn’t real, but to point out the flaws in our conceptualization of him.”
