Context Please

A random correspondent sent me a text message with his “Quote of the Day, So Far” from Senator Ron Gould:

Today I crawled out of a woman’s attic, took a shower and came to the Capitol.

    I guess that is the context.

    That’s pretty good, but I’m still proud of my own out-of-context quote in the Boston Globe during the DNC Convention.

    “Yours must be anal.”

    I was, of course, referring to the tendency of the Massachusetts delegation (who were seated in front of the AZ delegation) to carefully assign seats to all their members, while we were free to pick our own.
