4 QUOTES WITH «PUTRID»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word putrid.
1
Michael Eric Dyson
When you see the misogyny of hip-hop, it's so horrible, it's so putrid, it's so, you know, odious, that we know, we smell, we see it. The misogyny that is reified, that is reinforced, that is subtly reproduced in corporate America or in church life or in synagogues and temples and the like, is sometimes more subtly dealt with.
2
James Lind
They all in general had putrid gums, the spots and lassitude, with weakness of their knees.
3
Frank Miller
'Occupy' is nothing but a pack of louts, thieves, and rapists, an unruly mob, fed by Woodstock-era nostalgia and putrid false righteousness. These clowns can do nothing but harm America.

Jef I. Richards
There's so much truly putrid advertising out there it's embarrassing. But not all advertising is bad. Some of it is really quite mediocre.
