Today's quote was submitted by Clarence

Billy Joel said "When you're competent, and you live in an age where there's a lot of incompetence, it makes you appear extraordinary" This quote is from 1998. Billy Joel was explaining why he believed he was one of the biggest musical stars in the world at the time. He was saying, I'm not great, everyone else if just worse! I love that. It reminds me of Norm McDonald's on SNL. He had been fired from the show. A short while later, he was invited to be the host. He was hilarious. He said “How did I go from being not funny enough to be in the building, to being SO funny that I should host the show.” Then he said, I didn't get any funnier, the show is bad now!
