Lloyd Kaufman's Quotes

  • In our racist, sexist society, Christmas is the eight hours when we stop killing each other and gratuitous overeating is encouraged so that the starving and other people in the world can die!
  • The person who goes to the Troma movie knows that he or she may love the Troma movie or, he or she may hate the Troma movie; but the movie goer knows that he or she will never forget the Troma movie.
  • I'm from the '60s but no one has ever accused me of being a hippie. I never had much interest in the Woodstock crowd, which partied to change the world, while real people were starving to death in Africa. I never liked Peter Paul & Mary or The Carpenters and, despite being the era of "free love", I still had to pay for it.
  • I like fat people more then I like thin people, things are always a lot more funnier when they happen to fat people.
  • The thing I find about the movie industry is that 99 percent of the people are absolute scum. They're horrible people, they really are. Very nasty killer rabbits who hate movies. But the other 1 percent are really the greatest, most wonderful people in the world. They love movies--the art of movies and the business of the movies.
