Mr Burns on Cheating

Paul sent me this hysterical bit of dialogue from an old episode of The Simpsons:

Burns: Tell me, Simpson. If an opportunity arose for taking a small shortcut, you wouldn’t be adverse to taking it, would you?

Homer: Uhh, not as such.

Burns: Neither would I. I’ve always felt that there’s far too much hysteria these days about so-called cheating.

Homer: Yes, a lot of — hysteria. [worried look]

Burns: Mm-hmm. If you can take advantage of a situation in some way, it’s your duty as an American to do it. Why should the race always be to the swift or the jumble to the quick-witted? Should they be allowed to win merely because of the gifts God gave them? Well, I say cheating is the gift man gives himself!

Homer: Mr. Burns, I insist that we cheat.

Burns: Excellent.
