      Notes [1] It also goes far beyond “Frenemies” where Batgirl/Barbara Gordan says, as an excuse, “O have a library book I need to write for the library. So people can read e you gotta have books for the library. Otherwise, it’s just a big empty building, I guess,” which is a bit funny but not true!   The Portable Curmudgeon collects an outrageous number of quotes, mostly from people who you have heard about. Some quotes are sidesplitting, and most of them sum up a piece of life in a wonderfully sarcastic fashion. Personally, I could have done without the "subject" headings; the quotes frequently don't address the subject very well.5/5(5).
