My macro prof has a habit of making strange analogies and trying to use humor to demonstrate his points. Sometimes he goes so far with the humor that the point doesn't make sense, usually with amusing results. Some from tonight:
"You wanna see a loser? Look in the mirror!"
"You don't have to be the best at anything, and you can still succeed."
"[Adjusting interest rates to fix the foreign exchange rate] is like using a sledgehammer to beat a splinter out of my toe. I might get rid of the splinter, but there will be a lot of collateral damage."
"There's always a place where you can make the trade. Where did I find it? Behind the hotel last night."
