“Now and then an innocent man is sent to legislature.” Kin Hubbard

I was looking up some funny quotes and I kept running into this guy “Kin Hubbard”. It seems he was one of Will Rogers’s favorite’s. Rogers said he was, “America’s greatest humorist”. High praise, coming from the likes of Will Rogers who is my favorite of all time. Here’s are some of Kin Hubbard’s best quotes;

Now and then and innocent man is sent to legislature.

Flattery won’t hurt you if you don’t swallow it.

The only way to entertain some folks is just to listen to them.

We’d all like to vote for the best man, but he’s never a candidate.

When a fellow says ” It ain’t the money but the principle of the thing.” It’s the money.

There’s plenty of peace in a home where the family doesn’t make the mistake of trying to get together.

Nobody ever forgets where they buried the Hatchet.

Born in Bellfontaine Ohio,  Frank “Kin” McKinney Hubbard, was a Cartoonist who wrote a strip called “Abe Martin of Brown County”. It ran from 1904 to 1930 and I dare say influenced Will Rogers a little bit. Looks like a great trail of breadcrumbs to me… now I’m off to see if I can find some of his Cartoons online…Have a great day.
