Easter Egg
First person to identify this quote wins:

All lies and jest,
Still a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest.

Yeah, well, next time in you're Oregon
You can have your free Taco Bell lunch.
Sorry, that's the established Easter Egg prize! ;)

An "Egg" for anyone actually physically located in the Pacfic Northwest
"If there were no God, there would be no atheists."

Name that quote.

GK Chesterton
But I had to search for it. I don't feel nearly as good about this one than if I had had the chance to answer the Paul Simon question!

Zach wins it!
On top of the correct ID of my quote from Chesterton, you were also the first Oregonian to claim you knew the Paul Simon quote, so I think you qualify. :)

Zach gets two
Sounds like Zach is owed two Taco Bells, which has been established to be the equivalent of one Olive Garden.

I beg to differ!
The second "Egg" (the Chesterton quote) was added only because Lokmer jumped in and stole the Paul Simon. My referencing the fact Zach knew the Paul Simon answer was intended merely to asuage his bad feelings about having to resort to cheap internet searches to ID Chesteron.
Of course, if Zach would prefer to gamble on getting a second Egg and hold his free taco bell in reserve... then yes you're right about the Olive Garden substitute.

Taco Bell
Ok, I know this may shock some of you, but I would actually use the Taco Bell coupon. An Olive Garden coupon would require me to alter my normal eating habits, which have been known to cause digestive problems.

Nah, just kidding. I'll take the Taco Bell though gladly, thank you.
