Byrne and boredom are a man’s best friend…

Not to completely steal another person’s bit but I was bored and discovered some absolutely amazing John Byrne (comic book creator and artist of legendary runs on Uncanny X-Men, Superman: Man of Steel, and the Fantastic Four, and many others) quotes from Wikiquote.

Here are some higlights: (italtics are mine)

John Byrne on Latino women:

“Personal prejudice: Hispanic and Latino women with blond hair look like cheap hookers to me, no matter how clean or “cute” they are. Somehow those skin tones that look so good with dark, dark hair just don’t work for me with lighter shades. “

John Byrne on Steve Irwin, Croc Hunter:

I am GLAD this asshole is dead. Sorry for his wife and kids, but relieved they are in no further danger from his lunacy! ” 

“This guy should have been taken out of the croc pen, had his kids taken from him, and been thrown in the deepest, darkest, dankest pit the Australian judicial system has to offer. Preferably after being skinned alive. Asshole is too good a word.”

John Byrne on Joe Quesada: (clearly his caps lock key was broken this day)

“IF I CAN GO ALL REPUBLICAN FOR A MOMENT, IN QUESADA WE HAVE THE COMIC INDUSTRY EQUIVALENT OF BILL CLINTON. EVERYONE KEPT SAYING CLINTON WOULD “GROW INTO THE OFFICE”. AS HIS LAST DAYS SO CLEARLY DEMONSTRATE, THIS NEVER HAPPENED — HE REMAINED A SMALL-TIME POLITICO, WHO NEVER ESCAPED HIS BUMPKIN BACKGROUND. LIKEWISE, QUESADA — HE IS NOW EiC OF MARVEL COMICS!!!, YET HE CONTINUES TO ACT LIKE THE SMALL-PRESS PUBLISHER HE “USED” TO BE.”

John Byrne on the ‘War on Terrorism’:

“The only acceptable response, now that we are officially in a new world, is for the American government to go Old Testament on these motherfuckers. Operation Flaming Sword. Find them and kill them. And kill their wives, their children, their mothers, their fathers, their brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, uncles, butchers, bakers, candlestick makers. Go Super-Israel, and let them know what it feels like to be “at war” with the United States.”
