Guy with loudspeaker outside Wells Fargo center, 7/26/2016, c. 10:15 pm (running out of things to chant):
“Hillary is lame…I’ll just say anything…I need a date/I don’t discriminate/I like older women [woman in crowd yells out: “younger women too!!”]…fuck the borders! But not the boarders who are staying at my house–they’re pretty cool. You can’t fuck them……You can’t have your pudding if you didn’t eat your meat!” (two other guys started chanting with him)

Woman in red DNC (they make them?) tshirt on South Broad near Porter Street, watching the Philly Coalition for REAL Justice/Black Lives Matter and other protesters: “You know who Gil Scott-Heron is? Well, Gil Scott-Heron was wrong. The revolution *will* be televised!”
Me: “It was a Nike commercial.”
Woman: “We used to talk about revolution back in the 60s. Now everyone talks about revolution. I think the word ‘revolution’ has been cheapened.”
Me: “Well, it’s aspirational.”
(Her dog begins aggressively licking my pant leg)
Me: “Does he like cats? Has he been around cats before?”
Woman: “He had a few encounters but he can’t handle himself.”

re: Vermin Supreme (who was talking to police, and others, about something involving Vaseline and his nether regions)
Guy #1: “What are you going to name *your* pony?”
Guy #2: “I like him more on YouTube than I do in person.”
Guy #1: “I bet you could say that about anyone.”
