Quote Of The Day – 'Did You Ever Wonder…" Edition

“No, no, no, Mr. Rooney. The first rule is the witness never gets to ask any questions… even if he’s a journalist.”

Federal Judge Colleen McMahon, her head in her hands, admonishing CBS’s Andy Rooney on the witness stand at the trial of the owner of a celebrity speakers bureau accused of bilking his customers of speakers fees. Even the oath was too taxing for Rooney, as this section of the story indicates.

Rooney, 86, entered the courtroom muttering, and he balked when asked to swear to tell “nothing but the truth, so help you God.”

“I don’t know about God,” he said, taking the witness chair.
