“Just once, I’d like to clock out from work by sliding down a dinosaur”

In the opening sequence to the American animated sitcom The Flintstones, Fred Flintstone slides down a dinosaur and clocks out of work. ~Cindy~ posted on Twitter on September 11, 2013:

“Just once, I’d like to clock out from work by sliding down a dinosaur.”

The saying has been printed on several images.


Wikipedia: The Flintstones
The Flintstones is an American animated sitcom produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions. The series takes place in a romanticized Stone Age setting and follows the activities of the titular family, the Flintstones, and their next-door neighbors, the Rubbles. It was originally broadcast on ABC from September 30, 1960, to April 1, 1966, and was the first animated series to hold a prime-time slot on television.
