March Matchups: Battle of the Stupid & Humorous Quotes

We continue on with March Matchups and a real jim-dandy of a contest here at the Big Dick Dudley Memorial Coliseum. We've all said things that perhaps came out the wrong way or were just flat out dumb. But these folks are in the public eye and so their vocal flatulence remains on the books for all to see and these days courtesy of YouTube, can be heard as well. So away we go:

"You know the one thing that's wrong with this country? Everyone gets a chance to have their fair say." - Bill Clinton, former U.S. President.

"If somebody has a bad heart, they can plug this jack in at night as they go to bed and it will monitor their heart throughout the night. And the next morning, when they wake up dead, there'll be a record." - Mark S. Fowler, FCC Chairman.

"A 'No Parking' sign at a certain location means..." - multiple choice question on NY State learner's permit test.

"Any person who shall lead or drive a bear upon any highway shall be fined not more than $50." - Connecticut General Statutes, Section 6215.

The winner of this bout goes to Mark S. Fowler, FCC Chairman. You sound like a really up-beat sort of chap! Congratulations Mark!
