The old "finished" collection

Facebook: [link]

About the quotes:
1.) I don't own any of the quotes in my collection (unless it's stated otherwise);
2.) Credit is given if the ORIGINAL author of the quote is known;
3.) Even if they are racist, sexist, etc. there is no offense intended; They are made strictly with entertaining purposes;
4.) I don't own any (copyrights), so you can use them however you want them;
5.) Possibly there are some grammar mistakes and it would be much appreciated, if you notice them, to let me know, so I can fix them asap;

Am I the only one who thinks the structure of the sentence is a bit off?
This would have made more sense to me:
"Reading poetry really inspires me not to read poetry." OR
"I find reading poetry really inspiring; as it inspires me not to read poetry".

And for all those who find this offensive, it is not something to be taken seriously. I love poetry but I also appreciate someone who is expressing himself (Its not out rightly offensive anyway) . And "creative" self expression gets extra points.

Yeah, I agree, it didn't have the same "zing" as the others. Maybe because he finds poetry so uninspiring? LOL

Oh seriously, you dont simply write these kinds of things. This might be quite offensive for people who like reading. Dude, post a sentence IF it's funny or inspirational, not this. This is crap.

One does not simply write these things...

People who don't like a certain style of literature generally don't like reading it, and trying to read it only would make them dislike it more. How is that offensive?
