Here's a selection of some of the other better lines we received this week:
"We do chicken Wright."
"Therefore never send to know for whom the chickens come home to roost; they come home to roost for me."
"When I said America's chickens have come home to roost, I didn't mean in my living room."
"Shouldn't you be in the Oval Office?"
"The yolk is easy and the burden is light."
"Ya know, it's really just a figure of speech."
"I didn't say you were deficient. I said, different."
"I can't believe how fowled up the media are!"
"Every time I open my mouth, someone gets their feathers ruffled!"
"And Barack, Barack, Barack to you too."
And today's Loony Tune special: "Looky here, I say, son, I'm not chicken, just a loud-mouthed schook!"
