This came in email today. I've heard most if not all of these before. I believe i've heard them in the context of a standup act rather than as attributed below. The first one sounds more like Dennis Miller than Yassir Arrafat. Can anyone provide actual sources for these quotes:

I've heard all of them, but never with such bizarre attributions. Some of them I'm positive are George Carlin lines (or if they're not, they should be). I expect they're buried somewhere in ULRP...

I just heard a similar wisecrack on an old Gallagher video from over 15 years ago. But it wasn't mentally ill, it was "stupid people." As Gallagher put it, 25% of all people are stupid, but the unemployment rate is (or was then) 10%. Makes you wonder about the 15% who are in the workforce!
