So Quote Me . . .

A belated THANK YOU to Thumbup for nominating me months ago to participate in the 3-Day Quote Challenge a Day. To be more specific, it was a couple of weeks after the 4th of July (so I’m not that late).  With Halloween-tinged trickery, I deliberately applied malapropism to three well-known sayings:

“When the groin gets tough, apply lotion to it.”
— Mr. Magoo (a cartoon character who has extreme myopia)
mr-magoo

“Keep your hands close and your enemas closer.”
Book of Toilet Dilemmas (a rear book)

“Two bongs won’t win the fight.”
— Chee [a Cheech-wannabee]

Quote Challenged

Thank you kindly, vcreationss, for nominating me for the Quote Challenge. Because I’ve already done this challenge, I’m doing something a little different. Three of the attributions below are fictional, while one is not. Your mission is to determine how quote challenged I am. Which one is quoted by another? The answer is at the bottom of the post.

“Happiness is a warm gum.”
— Comedian George Burns in his nineties

“Forget putting my face on the $20 bill. Just put it in my pocket.”
