Vonnegut month: The meaning of life


The moral of the story is, we’re here on Earth to fart around.

(“David Barrancio Interview With Kurt Vonnegut”, NOW, PBS. Original airdate: October 7, 2005.)

This gets misquoted a lot as, “We are here on Earth to fart around. Don’t let anyone tell you different,” but the gist is the same.

    I’m remotely curious why someone ever felt they needed to add the last part. For emphasis presumably, but Vonnegut’s words are pretty stand alone, he was just that kind of bad ass.

    actually, the longer quote is from his novel “Timequake”.
