Karl Pilkington Quotes

A slug is always on its own. It’s a lonely insect. And we’ve got a toaster and everything. So there is no reason for the wedding. To me, a cat is an easy pet, they don’t need any spoiling or looking after.
I’d rather live in a cave with a view of a palace than live in a palace with a view of a cave.
I’d say the best is when I was in Africa, I saw a hippo in a house. Someone had a pet hippo. And they’re meant to be one of the most dangerous animals on the planet, and they had one that was sort of just wandering in and out of their house, just sort of roaming about.
