What is there to say about Tuesday

I used to have a set of seven pairs of socks, each with a day of the week on them. Now, at the point of purchase, these seemed like genius, a guarantee that I would know which socks to wear each day, but as time went by, I realised the folly. Monday got paired with Wednesday, one of Thursday was lost forever and don't even get me started on Friday.

So it may well become with putting the day of the week in the title.

There are, after all, only so many ways to mention Tuesday. Even with the power of Uncle Google and a lateral mind, the number of ways to use the word Tuesday are surely finite. For the record, there are exactly 138 million* records returned to the query "witty comments with Tuesday in the title"

I did stumble across some quotes, some of which you may find funny, albeit that none of them include the word "Tuesday"**, many of which seem to be relevant for much of my working day so for your Tuesday delight, here they are (and "who said them" details included for Golfy, who has a very inquisitive mind):

* I am guessing the search bot got bored after that and gave up
** Are you with me in thinking that the search bot may just be making it up?
