It's the dog that instantly learns to pee outdoors, never menaces or frightens children, plays gently with other dogs, won't jump on the UPS guy, never rolls in gross things, eats only the appropriate food at the right time, and never chews anything not meant for him. This dog does not exist. -Jon Katz

It was gross enough for fast food restaurants to ban, but apparently our government wants so-called pink slime to be a staple in your kids' lunches. -Jane Velez-Mitchell

Some of the natural world is appealing, some of it is terrifying, and some of it grosses us out. Modern people don't want to be dropped naked into a swamp.

Too many writers get into that gross-'em-out factor. -Octavia E. Butler

I just don't know the art of making friends with girls. And that's the reason why I've never had a single girl as a friend.

The Internet amplifies power in all respects. It can grossly exaggerate the power of the individual. -John Perry Barlow

Natto, Japanese ferment bean paste, will never cross my lips again. Spam Musubi, on the other hand, is something I love.

I had a doctorate in biological anthropology. I got a post-doc at CWRU dental school in 1983 teaching gross anatomy. -Mary Doria Russell

My role in the White House was grossly exaggerated by the press. Fortunately for the American people, when the president had to make a critical economic decision or a decision on a weapons system, he did not turn to me and say, 'Hamilton, what in the hell do I do?' -Hamilton Jordan

Back in the '60s and '70s, data were scarce, and while analysts knew that companies with fat gross margins lagged those with thin gross margins early in bull markets – and overachieved in the later phases – they couldn't do much about it. -Kenneth Fisher

When you buy my books, you kind of know what you're in for. It's kind of self-selecting. If you have a delicate sensibility, and you're easily grossed out, you probably will never read one of my books. -Mary Roach

Fletcherizing is gross. I tried it once. I tried to go until it's all liquid, and it just creeps you out to be focusing so much on your chewing. -Mary Roach

With 'Gone Girl,' I sat down, and suddenly the end credits were rolling; you just become so engrossed in it. -Atticus Ross

I think there is an enormous sea change happening in the global workforce. It has a lot to do with globalization. I think that people used to have a hope for a career or meaningful employment, and its been reduced to internships, part-time work or just grossly underpaid work. -Dan Gilroy

Nothing is worse than a beautiful girl fishing for compliments by saying how gross she is. On the flip side, I find genuine humility and modesty attractive. -Chris Evans

I think 'Bridesmaids' has changed things socially and culturally. Before, it was really difficult for women to do scatological humour without seeming gross. -Rebel Wilson

I spent the first 22 years of my life absorbing everything, like a big disgusting cell, and now I'm disgorging it with jokes added out into the world. That's a really gross metaphor. -Daniel Mallory Ortberg

When I was 22, I wasn't too proud to do anything. I was taking out trash, buying stinky vintage clothes, and pulling gross Kleenex out of the pockets. -Sophia Amoruso

Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine is a gross violation of that nation's sovereignty and an affront to the international community. -Rand Paul

Zombies, mummies – they're disgusting and gross. You don't want to make out with a mummy. At least, I don't. -Catherine Hardwicke

I learned to glitter the pumpkins for Halloween not because I went into it thinking, 'I'm going to glitter some pumpkins!' No. I bought all of these big, cold, slimy, disgusting pumpkins and tried to carve them, and it was gross, so I had to find something else to do with them. Glitter was life-changing. -Jen Lancaster

Americans are grossly deficient in basic micronutrients and especially those phytochemicals that arm our immune system to fight cancer. -Joel Fuhrman

This whole Oscar thing is so political. It's about how much a film grosses, and who's in it, and how well it has been promoted. -Lisa Cholodenko

In books or films, it is desirable to have a climactic battle scene, but the world does not operate in those gross dramatic terms. In Vietnam, there was a general aimlessness, not just in the physical sense, but beyond that in the moral and ethical sense. -Tim O'Brien

I've done about 15 movies and four television series in Mexico. My last two movies were the highest grossing in Mexican-cinema history – 'Nosotros los Nobles' and 'Instructions Not Included.' -Karla Souza

I used to trade stocks online, and I kind of felt gross, like, all I'm doing is making money off other people's creativity, and I'm not creating anything myself. -Nathan Fielder

My dance teacher will show me pictures of girls who are rhythmic gymnasts, and they are super skinny. But I don't want to be too skinny. I think that looks a little gross when you are dancing. You don't want to be a scrawny, bony thing. -Maddie Ziegler

When gross public debt exceeds 90 percent of GDP, economic growth tends to decline considerably. -Kevin McCarthy

I've never been able to shake the idea of family, which is to say I've never been able to shake my family. Being membered – being one limb of an immense grosser body – that's always been a fact to me. -Joshua Cohen

You cannot write a book unless it is totally inhabiting your imagination and you are totally engrossed with it. Which is a kind word for obsession. -Kate Forsyth

Beige curtains… there's nothing wrong with them. You're not like, 'Ew, gross! Beige curtains!' You just don't notice them either way. They're just, like, fine. -Riki Lindhome

There was a time when I thought dudes had friendship all figured out. The focus on eating things in front of giant screens, pretending to punch one another, competing over who can utter the grossest and most profane personal insults imaginable – this struck me as the very apex of human social exchange. -Lynn Coady

China should cut heavy industries' share in gross domestic output by 9 percentage points between 2013 and 2030 to meet its pollution cuts target. -Ma Jun

Gossipers derive pleasure from other people's misfortunes. It might be fun to peer into somebody else's personal or professional faux pas at first, but over time, it gets tiring, makes you feel gross, and hurts other people. -Travis Bradberry

I marketed pens – on the phone. But the beauty of the gig was that you had to call these strangers and say, 'Hi, how ya doing?' You made up a name, like, 'Hey, it's Edward Quartermaine from California. You're eligible to receive this grandfather clock or a trip to Tahiti.' You promise them all these things if they buy a gross of pens. -Johnny Depp

I don't like gross monetary inequities. I firmly believe that the wrong people and the wrong professions are being rewarded, and rewarded absurdly, and that the hardest work the obscenely rich do is ensuring that they preserve their privileges, status symbols, and bloated bank accounts. -Michael Dirda

There has been a failure to grasp how competing narratives fight for the attention of angry young Muslims, and we have grossly underestimated the appeal of the jihadist brand. -Maajid Nawaz

As long as poverty, injustice and gross inequality persist in our world, none of us can truly rest. -Nelson Mandela

Sometimes, I don't like making emotions your career; something about it is kind of gross. But, at the same time, I want to move people the same way the songs make me feel. -Nathaniel Rateliff

'The Art Student's War' is, at its core, a traditional American wartime love story. As such, it is timely and engrossing. By the end, all its principal characters 'have been to Hell and back.' -Floyd Skloot

PepsiCo is the largest food-and-beverage company in the United States, and the second-largest in the world after Nestle. If PepsiCo were a country, the size of its economy – sixty billion dollars in revenues in 2010 – would put it sixty-sixth in gross national product, between Ecuador and Croatia. -John Seabrook

I tell foreign companies that come here… 'Don't see Turkey as a country of 770,000 sq km and $800bn gross domestic product. This country has the potential to do so much business in the surrounding countries.' -Husnu Ozyegin

When I go into 'You're the Worst,' I'm very glammed up, and my hair and makeup is va-va-voom. Now what I'm having fun with in 'Grease' is, honestly, I go to rehearsals with zero makeup. When I get pimples, I get excited about it, like 'Yay! It helps the character!' The frumpier and uglier and grosser, the better with Jan. -Kether Donohue

Contentment is work so engrossing that you do not know that you are working. -Donald Hall

The natural law is, in essence, a profoundly 'radical' ethic, for it holds the existing status quo, which might grossly violate natural law, up to the unsparing and unyielding light of reason. -Murray Rothbard

The doctrines & miracles of our Saviour have required nearly two thousand years to convert but a small part of the human race, & even among Christian nations, what gross errors still exist! -Robert E. Lee

Caste may be bad. Caste may lead to conduct so gross as to be called man's inhumanity to man. All the same, it must be recognized that the Hindus observe Caste not because they are inhuman or wrong-headed. They observe Caste because they are deeply religious. -B. R. Ambedkar

We're seeking out such grossness in human behavior and want such mindless entertainment. 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' and some of these other shows are more racist. Or '16 and Pregnant.' Getting rewarded for being pregnant when you're a teenager? Are you serious? -Chelsea Handler

There's a book out called 'How Money Walks' written by Travis Brown. He's followed annual adjusted gross income from 1992 to 2011. Approximately $100 billion has moved to Florida from all over the country. Number two is Arizona. Where does it come from? It's come from New York; it's come from New Jersey; and it's come from California. -Rick Scott

When I go about my own politics, I meet Tea Party supporters who I can work with in Congress, that I find common ground with. I find Tea Party supporters who won't let me get a sentence out without judging me. To say that there is a 'Tea Party supporter' is a gross generality. -Cory Booker

I don't find anything upsetting or gross or degrading about fighting with a mental illness: Bipolar or Schizophrenia. -Kangana Ranaut

Robin is one of the most native and democratic of our birds; he is one of the family, and seems much nearer to us than those rare, exotic visitants, as the orchard starling or rose-breasted grossbeak, with their distant, high-bred ways. -John Burroughs

To have drunkards, idiots, horse-racing, rumselling rowdies, ignorant foreigners, and silly boys fully recognized, while we ourselves are thrust out from all the rights that belong to citizens, it is too grossly insulting to… be longer quietly submitted to. -Elizabeth Cady Stanton

I really like gross Chinese things. -Awkwafina

I don't wash my hair every day, which may sound gross, but it's actually really bad for my hair. -Selena Gomez

Woe to the man who is always busy – hurried in a turmoil of engagements, from occupation to occupation, and with no seasons interposed of recollection, contemplation and repose! Such a man must inevitably be gross and vulgar, and hard and indelicate – the sort of man with whom no generous spirit would desire to hold intercourse. -William Godwin

I feel like things are weirder in our food production chain than I can even make up. I wouldn't invent pink slime, but pink slime exists: It's a non-fictional entity. Like, that stuff grosses me out so much, I couldn't make it up. -Alexandra Kleeman

Certain shows, when it's all comedy, it's like when you eat something that's too sweet and it just tastes gross. You need that salted caramel. -Jonathan Krisel

It's funny because, if you're not an actor, people always tend to say, 'How do you memorize all those lines? Is that really hard?' I'm always like, 'That's just a small part of it. I have to seek my craft and my emotions' – you know, all this gross, actor-y stuff. -Sarah Baker

I am quite fortunate, because I can still be quite incognito. If you go out looking for attention, then you'll attract it, but if you're just getting on with your life, particularly in London where everyone is engrossed in what they're doing, you can keep a measure of anonymity. -Felicity Jones

I love Epsom salt and just use the inexpensive unscented ones from CVS. It's better than oils… those make the tub so gross, and I never feel like cleaning it right before I go out. -Julia Restoin Roitfeld

Intent to harm America is not required to make the mishandling of information criminal – it simply requires that the actor was grossly negligent. -Mike Pompeo

The documentary 'Certifiably Jonathan' has engrossing moments in it. How can it not? It's got a great subject – the extraordinarily voluble comedian Jonathan Winters, whose constant rush of words can be like a blizzard: beautiful, maddening, exhausting, and finally beautiful again. But it's not a great film. -Elvis Mitchell

Some of the most impressive judicial nominees are grossly mistreated. -Neil Gorsuch

It's the way tenure works, together with dismissal protections that tenured teachers have, that no other public employee has, which makes it almost impossible to remove a grossly ineffective and incompetent teacher or, in some cases, even an abusive teacher. -Campbell Brown

I had gross morning sickness til about 15 weeks and then gestational diabetes, and most annoyingly, from about week 20, I had pelvis issues, which saw me on crutches for the last five weeks of the pregnancy and has since developed into full-blown Osteitis Pubis and pelvic instability. -Zoe Foster Blake

Senator Badger did not call. During the whole of the last session of Congress, he did not call on me. He is a bitter partisan and is no doubt sensible that during the presidential canvass of 1844, he did me gross injustice. -James K. Polk

I did not expect to encounter what has beset me since my elevation to the presidency. God knows, I have endeavored to fulfill what I considered to be an honest duty, but I have been mistaken; my motives have been misconstrued and my feelings grossly betrayed. -Zachary Taylor

I was so engrossed in my sport, I wasn't thinking about the future from God's standpoint. I was thinking about just my sporting future. -Ben Zobrist

To be honest, I don't listen to much music! I've been so engrossed in it my whole life that when I drive around in my car, I'll listen to college lectures on philosophy and literature and world history, things like that, to kind of catch up on the college experience I missed. -Butch Trucks

Hollywood is a boys' club, and that's something I thought was a stereotype – and it's not. That really shocked me. Still shocks me. Everyone's helping their buddies out and pressing their buddies and playing tennis with their buddies and making movies with their buddies, and that grosses me out. -Emily Ratajkowski

Some actors occasionally waive their outlandish salaries and take a cut of the gross instead. -Jeff Giles

I've been in government and politics my entire career, and while I try to keep a level head and a reasonable tone in my commentary, even I can lose my head sometimes and let anger bubble over and burst out. It feels gross, looks ugly, and leaves a lasting mark. -Dana Perino

My problem with my parents growing up was not that I was afraid to cry in front of them – they always wanted me to cry because they wanted me to be okay, but it felt kind of icky and gross to cry in front of my parents. So my problem was the polar opposite – I didn't want to cry in front of them because I didn't want to give them the satisfaction. -Lucas Hedges

Entitlement is just the grossest kind of human behavior. -Jessica Parker Kennedy

If I could time-travel, I would either go to the '70s and watch the first 'Star Wars' film the day it opened, or to 1880s London, during the Jack the Ripper era, and experience the true grossness of that time. -Katherine Langford

It seems like a gross waste of time to continue our career predicated on the idea that we're going to divide opinion. What's more important is just doing something that you love. -Andy Biersack

Once I started getting paid to be a writer and not having lots of other gross responsibilities, like making the puzzle or whatever, then my ambition changed, and I thought, 'Now I want to be a good writer.' And that became my ambition. -Ariel Levy

I literally used to stare at my face in the mirror with hate and anger. I'd focus on those gigantic zits and just wail about what a monster I was, how I would never have a career because of my gross skin. I couldn't pass a mirror with out thinking about how hideous my skin was and how I wished I was someone else, someone with perfect skin. -Stephanie Beatriz

Spielberg may have intended 'Schindler's List' as the opposite of entertainment, but the film grossed $321 million and engaged audiences as only entertainment can, coaxing them to cry and shudder, leaving their hearts more heavy than broken. -Stephen J. Dubner

By 2030, up to 10 percent of the world's gross domestic product could be linked to space in some way. -Dylan Taylor

We need to invest in healthcare, in education, in the sciences. And in so doing, we will tackle one of the most intractable problems we face, which is gross wealth inequality. We can't fight climate change without dealing with inequality in our countries and between our countries. -Naomi Klein

It's not that the regulator doesn't want the banking industry to grow. The growth of the industry has always been in relation to the GDP (gross domestic product) growth. -Chanda Kochhar

One of the reasons 'Boogie Nights' is one of my favorite movies is because it's about people in this gross industry, but they actually treat each other kind of like family. And at the end of the day, they're really kind to each other, and I feel like that is what we have. -Jennifer Konner

'The Living And The Dead' is one of those scripts that you read and are instantly compelled and engaged by. It's intelligent, chilling, and engrossing. -Colin Morgan

I prefer situational or character-based humor to gross-out gags and comedic set pieces. -Ari Graynor

A movie has to get good reviews, high grosses – it has to beat expectations. The same thing with television and the ratings. But being curious isn't like that. It's not a public thing. It's private, and the test is a private one. You have to be on your toes. -Brian Grazer

Many of the top-grossing movies of all time are science fiction. -Bonnie Hammer

There are girls who find the giant beard 'gross' and 'creepy.' I know because they tell me. -Jason Mantzoukas

Increased fragmentation of production across international borders – a natural outgrowth of the gains from specialization – meant more trade for any given value of final production, thus adding to the major expansion in gross trade flows in the 1990s and 2000s. -Jerome Powell

I love gross kissing. I think it's the most fun thing to do. -Kate McKinnon

I put Tabasco sauce over everything. Or I put it on pretty much anything that wouldn't taste gross – I mean, I wouldn't put it on salad, but I like it on fried chicken, nachos… a lot of stuff. -Zach LaVine

There's something kind of horrific about milk. Think about it! Think about what we're doing. Milk is kind of gross. -Jordan Peele

I had physical disabilities as a kid. I had fine gross motor problems, so I didn't have natural dexterity in my hands. I also wore corrective braces on my legs, like in 'Forrest Gump.' -Apollo Robbins

I would be ignorant to say colorism doesn't exist; it's gross and disgusting. -Jurnee Smollett-Bell

I'm not conventional. I try to be raw and vulnerable and gross. -Krysten Ritter

My first kiss was in 7th grade. It grossed me out. I kind of freaked out! -Lauren Alaina

Just because I'm the top-grossing actress of all time does not mean I'm the highest paid. I've had to fight for everything that I have. It's such a fickle and political industry. -Scarlett Johansson

You can't really get as much done when you're worried about looking gross. -Lauren Lapkus

It's always a little gross when you're guarding someone and you can see, like, hair coming from underneath his jersey. -Blake Griffin

I like grown-up comedy, where it's about character and attitude and life as opposed to obvious gross-out and jokes. -Ricky Gervais

If I ran a national burger franchise – which I don't – I'd make it a rule that no two customers can be greeted with precisely the same words and that every third customer must be grossly insulted as a matter of course. Just to keep the atmosphere nice and lively. And to keep the staff laughing. -Charlie Brooker

Democracy in Myanmar cannot be achieved with discrimination and gross violations of human rights. -Winnie Byanyima

Investments in ICT will play a major role in generating stable, high-paying jobs and boosting the nation's gross domestic product. -Tae Yoo

It's absolutely amazing to me that anyone allowed their children to watch 'The Ren & Stimpy Show' in the '90s; it's dark, gross, nihilistic, and absolutely bizarre. -Emily V. Gordon

If you give me fro-yo without mangoes, you're dead to me. If you say that Hawaiian pizza is gross, we're done. -Chloe Kim

It's easy to see how non-profits become engrossed in catering to donors, which may or may not be the best thing at all times, while if a company is ultra-engaged with its customers, it's universally positive and helpful. -Andrew Yang

I'm not big on protein shakes – I think they're pretty gross, actually – so I have to make sure I eat enough meat, fish, and other good protein sources. -Elana Meyers

I live in Australia Zoo. I have a very private home. We've got three bedrooms, one bathroom… The carpets are rose-coloured, which grossed Steve out, but I love it. He let me do everything the way I wanted. The house is just warm and cozy and small. -Terri Irwin

Frankly, I find it very odd that, in a population that's more than 50 per cent of women, that Hollywood isn't producing more movies to cater to that audience. The demographic is being grossly underserved, in my opinion. -Phyllida Lloyd

My comedy isn't clean; it's just friendly. So I get asked to do a lot of clean shows. It's like, 'Oh, I have a clean vibe, but I say gross, weird stuff.' It's just, it's very gentle the way I say it. It's not upsetting or jarring to people, because I'm not very aggressive. -Josh Gondelman

In my viewpoint, experience is grossly overrated. -Naveen Tewari

I think something that's really important to me is trying to do what I can from my position of power that comes with having a social media platform to dismantle certain systems that I think are really gross and harmful. -Amandla Stenberg

SoulCycle feels gross, is gross, and I'm grateful to have found it. -Mary H.K. Choi

It's never a matter ever, ever – are – we're never trying to gross anybody out, or ever are we trying to shock people. We're just trying to make it funny in a way that makes the audience go, 'You know, that was the first joke they thought of, and they weren't afraid to do it.' -Jay Chandrasekhar

The Deep Cleansing Pore Strips have been a staple product in my life for years. I don't pop blackheads. I don't touch my face. I like that this allows me to feel like I'm getting them out without grossing myself out. -Madelaine Petsch

The U.S.' refusal to acknowledge the plight of displaced Haitians and maintaining inhumane practices of neglect, disrespect, and violence amounts to a gross violation of human rights. -Opal Tometi

As a community organizer who holds a degree in history, I understand the fascination with history. However, there is a tendency for many of us to get engrossed in the recounting of our history, which often amounts to purely intellectual activity without material action. -Opal Tometi

Christmas is the biggest holiday in numbers – in terms of gross amounts – because you have one and a half to two months. -Jacques Torres

I'm pretty sure that I've never confessed in an interview my weakness for McDonald's Filet-O-Fish. The cheese is fake. Who knows what that 'fish' really is. It is gross. It is amazing. -Laura van den Berg

The process of getting into Miranda mode is simply making sure I'm as gross as possible. I make sure I'm wearing funky clothes and a lot of lipstick, and I'm good to go. -Colleen Ballinger

Although our rules and laws are now officially colorblind, they operate to discriminate in a grossly disproportionate fashion. -Michelle Alexander

Regardless of any experiences in the past, for me it really is important to be engrossed in as much of the creative process as I possibly can. I was surprised with how much the eight years I spent on 'Castle' actually serviced that. I ended up, in a way, having a free education on that show. -Stana Katic

The gross demonstration of caffeine is that it prevents you from falling asleep. The slightly more nefarious aspect of caffeine is that maybe you can fall asleep, but we know that the depth of deep sleep you're getting if caffeine is still in your system is severely less. -Matthew Walker

Even though most of us love, love, love it when we're flush with cash, and we fantasize about what we'd do with more of it, we'd feel gross saying 'I love money' out loud. -Jen Sincero

Al-Qaida became the new Soviet Union, and in the process, Bin Laden became a demonic, terrifyingly powerful figure brooding in a cave while he controlled and directed the al-Qaida network throughout the world. In this way, a serious but manageable terrorist threat became grossly exaggerated. -Adam Curtis

Never did much art till I was in my 30s, except for painting video sets, designing record covers and T-shirts, and making zines and stuff. I thought I was too punk for art and felt grossed out by white-room galleries and art people. -Hunx

Perry Farrell is so gross, and his wife looks like a monkey. -Hunx

Falling off stages or making out with gross guys isn't something I'm very fond of. -Hunx

Several times, I've been talking with some gross person at a party and had them literally walk away – mid convo – to ruthlessly approach someone more famous. -Hunx

I like shows for atmosphere. I don't know, I think a plot-driven show is so boring and masc4masc and gross. -Hari Nef

I would have loved to have been an aesthetician. I love, like, anything to do with – I know this sounds kind of gross – but any kind of zit popping is so fascinating to me. -Katie Lee

Since he took power over half a century ago, Fidel Castro proved to be a brutal dictator who must always be remembered by his gross abuses of human rights, systemic exploitation of Cubans, unrelenting repression, and stifling censorship upon his own people. -Bob Menendez

I have ended up on so many weird Men's Rights Twitter accounts filled with weird anime. I don't know. It's so bizarre to me that people can think that way, and so I feel like I can decode them or figure it out. But you can end up so grossed out. -Perfume Genius

To me, when something's really funny, there's, like, a wildness to it, and it's very close to the wildness of something potentially tragic or gross. It's all very close to each other when you have that extreme level of feeling. -Perfume Genius

I don't sing. If I could sing or dance, I would have done something really gross in a G-string by now – when I wasn't working and was desperate – and ruined my career. -Jason O'Mara

I learned that on kids' shows, you have to eat a lot of stuff. A lot of the humor comes from food and gross-out humor. -Linda Cardellini

The accumulation and cross-generational transmission of wealth in the United States has gone way too far. When a young hedge-fund manager can take home a sum reminiscent of the gross national product of a small country, something is askew. -Howard Gardner

There is a lot of talk in the academy about the death of the humanities. Based on my readers' response and their interest in history and literature and art, the death of the humanities has been grossly overstated. -Deborah Harkness

All individuals in all cultures use the same thirty basic moral categories, concepts, or principles, and all individuals in all cultures go through the same order or sequence of gross stage development, though they vary in rate and terminal point of development. -Lawrence Kohlberg

Christina Grimie was one of my favorite people, not only because she was caring, she was humble, and she always felt like people mattered… but because the first thing she said when she met me was, 'Oh em gee – your videos are really gross, but for some reason, I love you.' -Shane Dawson

I remember in high school, I ate some nachos probably like an hour, half-hour before the game, and it's kind of gross, but a little of it came up while I was running – you know you get that burp – and I literally coughed at the same time, and it got caught in my nose, and it was during the game. -Chris Bosh

Smoking is gross. -Ryan Eggold

I probably get a bit more backlash in Australia than I do in America, to be honest. I was never invited to the Melbourne Comedy Festival because I was too gross, things like that. Which never happened in any other country. -Jim Jefferies

It's kind of wild and wonderful that 'West Side Story' continues to have a life after all these years. And when you see young people who are really engrossed by this film, that's so beautiful. -George Chakiris

It bothers me when people say 'shock comic' or 'gross-out' because that was only one type of comedy I did. There was prank comedy. Man-on-the-street-reaction comedy. Visually surreal comedy. But you do something shocking, and that becomes your label. -Tom Green

I bought a purse that was so grossly expensive, it's embarrassing. It cost $3,500, and it was by Louis Vuitton. The one thing about investing in something like that is that I get to pull it out years later, and it still looks cool and holds its value. -Ashley Roberts

In 2006 or something, I was recording the voices for this short, 'The Real Animated Adventures of Doc and Mharti.' I was having fun doing these really crappy Doc Brown and Marty McFly impressions. During the middle of a line, a burp came out naturally. It was just so funny and gross. -Justin Roiland

Don't say I was an inspirational teacher – my former pupils would laugh their heads off. I was grossly incompetent, but I hope I didn't do the children a disservice. -Greg Davies

Here's my problem: Hillary Clinton has been found grossly negligent of classified information. Period. She should not have any security clearance. That should be taken away from her. -Joe Walsh

I grossly underestimated the gravitational pull of America's justice system toward white supremacy. -Shaun King

Blame it on our short memories, the daily grind of the 24-hour-news cycle, or the endless barrage of information that comes at us on social media, but count me in the number of people who did not truly understand how utterly gross both Donald Trump and Bill Clinton have been to women, including their own wives, across the years. -Shaun King

Bill Clinton is just as gross as Donald Trump – so much so that the Clinton campaign can't really back Trump into a corner on his integrity or mistreatment of women because Bill's personal history is so damn awful. -Shaun King

I'm a gross human being. -Scott Speedman

I really believe, especially with 3D, you kind of have to approach it as this holistic thing. You have to kind of mount a 3D movie; you can't just add 3D as a kind of a special sauce sprinkled on top of a dish afterwards to give you an extra 20-percent in theater grosses, which I think is the way a lot of studios perceive it. -Paul W. S. Anderson

I was called a freak because I was so engrossed in music. -Orianthi

When I arrived at Liverpool, the budget was £20m gross. When I left, it was £17m, but still people said I must win the title. Manchester United had around £50m more every year, but they said I must compete against them. -Rafael Benitez

Our conviction that green cheese makes up a negligible fraction of the Moon's interior comes not from direct observation but from the gross incompatibility of that idea with other things we think we know. -Sean M. Carroll

Human beings are gross. -Devin Townsend

I'm a really active person. I feel gross when I'm not. -Devon Windsor

My ex-boyfriend didn't hear me fart once, and we were together six years. I hated the thought of grossing him out, so I think some things should be left to do privately. -Emily Atack

There was a task I had done in 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' where I had to put live worms into my mouth as part of the task. It was quite gross. -Hina Khan
