I found these on a site by Katie Budris. Test yourself.

Test yourself… how are Peter’s two arguments? sound? valid?
For core, focus on the batman argument… what is peter’s reasoning that parker lewis would beat batman in a fight?
Jeremy Usborne: Yeah, it’s all based on the seven sacred truths from the golden tablets found in the asteroid which crashed in Siberia in 1911. It’s a really great book, you’d love the chapter on Orgones.
Mark Corrigan: Orgones?
Jeremy Usborne: Orgones are the invisible molecules of universal life energy which govern our moods and our actions. Negative Orgones are the sources of all the problems in the world.
Mark Corrigan: And you believe that?
Jeremy Usborne: Well, how do explain all the problems in the world.
Mark Corrigan: I mean, I couldn’t just… There are so many historical and economic factors.
Jeremy Usborne: Exactly. You haven’t got a clue.
Mark Corrigan: But come on, Jez? Asteroids? Orgones? What would you say if I came home one day talking about that kind of stuff?
Jeremy Usborne: I’d say “That’s sounds fascinating, please tell me more.” See you later.
Or here’s another…
Jeremy Usborne: The good news is that in my last personality chart I was thirty percent up. Which was pretty wicked.
Super Hans: Your wellness levels must be through the fucking roof. You’re right on schedule, according to the book. Hardback book, based on tablets brought by an asteroid. Something you can rely on.
Jeremy Usborne: Yeah. What do you think about the… asteroid stuff?
Super Hans: What, are you having a few doubts?
Jeremy Usborne: No. God no. More sort of… thoughts.
Or another…. Cally (Jez’s new manager) justifies her belief in the sacredness of crystal skulls…

MARK CORRIGAN: In a factory…from glass.
CALLY: Oh sure, c’mon! Could you make that?
MARK CORRIGAN: No.
CALLY: Could ANYONE?
Are one in three fifteen year olds on drugs. No. We proved it in tests.
Great for testing your critical thinking skills:
So It’s a well known fact that if we got rid of the Queen, within a couple of years we’d be a communist state led by anarchists led by Ken Livingston.
Look at the French, they got rid of the Monarchy and they’re a bunch of Ar***oles. Do we want to be like the French?
We’ve got not not actual evidence that she is a witch, but then again we have no actual evidence that she is not a witch.
If you ask yourself why has The Sun witch-hunts against paedophiles, Muslims and Gypsies but never against actual witches? conspiracy theory?
In ‘Screwed the Pooch’ Brian is up in courst and the prosecution lawyer cross examines Peter…
Lawyer: Mr Griffin, which of the following two phrases best describes Brian Griffin: Problem Drinker or African-American Haberdasher?
Peter: Uh, do I-I guess problem drinker, but that’s uh-
Lawyer: Thank-you. Now: Sexual deviant or magic picture that if you stare at it long enough, you see something?
Peter: Well, sexual deviant, but that other one’s not even, eh-
Thirteen teenagers were trampled to death in a cow field at midnight after taking this [new drug ‘cake’].
