“They’re like London buses. You don’t get one for 5,000 years and then all of a sudden two come at once.”

    ““They’re like London buses. You don’t get one for 5,000 years and then all of a sudden two come at once.” Yeah, and my Mom used to say of NYC buses, that they come in bunches like bananas.
