Quote: Porkpie Hats and Justin Bieber


I had to post a couple more funny quotes from Dean Koontz’s Odd Apocalypse. The story is told from the perspective of Odd Thomas, who sees dead people and tries to help them cross over to the afterlife by resolving whatever injustice is preventing them from moving on. This is one of Odd’s musings from his latest adventure which involves some wibbley-wobbley, timey-wimey stuff–resulting from the abuse of Nikola Tesla’s genius. (I have nothing against guys who wear porkpie hats. I just thought these were amusing.)

“Guys who wear porkpie hats are always, in my experience, up to no good–and pleased about it. Whether that style of headwear turns previously benign men into sociopaths or whether men who are already sociopaths are drawn to that style is one of those mysteries that will never be solved, though the Department of Justice has probably funded a score of scientific studies of the issue.”

I can’t resist a good rip on Justin Bieber, so I’ll include another Odd Thomas quote, which ties in to the porkpie hat reference.

“Women don’t find me as appealing as they do, say, that singer Justin Bieber. But I take comfort from the fact that Justin Bieber wouldn’t know how to escape from a walk-in freezer after being chained there by a couple of huge guys in porkpie hats. He couldn’t sing his way out of a spot like that; inevitably, he would be a Biebersicle.”

Any Doctor Who fans catch the reference above? Of course you did! Leave me a shout in the comments!
