  3. "How do you spell ‘Perot’?"

  4. "No need for exit polling; just count the people in line wearing masks vs those not wearing them."

  5. "I may have came for the voting, but I’m staying for the race war."

  6. "Are they honking because they support democracy, because they *hate* democracy, or is it just because we’re blocking the road?"

  9. "Do we Democrats have to wait in line EVERY time we vote today?"

  10. "I haven’t seen lines this long since Charlie Sheen’s birthday party."

  11. "Welcome to the Houston drive-thru polling place. I’ll need to see your driver’s license, Social Security card, organ donor card, birth certificate, Blockbuster Video membership ca— oh, Republican? Sorry, go right ahead."

  12. "Sir, you can check my backpack all you want, but we BOTH know what this empty bottle is for."

  13. "Wait, this isn’t the line for COVID testing?"
