Smart Quotes.

Daniel Radosh

The Elizabeth Smart case is generating some of the funniest quotes I've seen in a long time. I'll periodically post my favorites, and yours if you send them in.

SLC Police Chief Charles Dinse, on why the cops hadn't gone looking for Brian Mitchell when the Smarts first mentioned him: "All we had to go on at that time was a name and a description." Really, how do you expect us to work without GPS coordinates, he did not add.

Wally Cromar, employee at the Wild Oats Natural Market Place, frequented by Mitchell and his followers: "We get a pretty diverse group of people in here — hippies and vegans — so you try not to think about people being strange."

Jason Kirchner, neighbor who spotted Mitchell around town: "I saw him at food festival, Taste of Utah, last year. He had those flowing robes on. I gave him some curry. And then when I saw that face on the news I turned to my wife and said, 'That's the guy we gave the curry dish to.'" Wait, curry is the taste of Utah? I hope it's vegan.
