Banned Books and Pink Mustaches

Every Christmas I give Jacob a banned book. This year's pick: Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut.
Looking especially Vonnegutesque this Christmas
 A few quotes from the novel:
“One might be led to suspect that there were all sorts of things going on in the Universe which he or she did not thoroughly understand.” 

“That's one thing earthlings might learn to do, if they tried hard enough: ignore the awful times, and concentrate on the good ones.”  
“...when a person dies he only appears to die. He is still very much alive in the past, present, and future, always have existed, always will exist.”
This one, which I have considered needlepointing on a pillow:

“Goodness me, the clock has struck-Alackday, and fuck my luck.” 

And one more that is hilarious.

 “He had a tremendous wang, incidentally. You never know who'll get one.”
So it goes.
