If you've been keeping up with your ex-Hall of Famer and/or hooker news, you know that former linebacker Lawrence Taylor was recently sentenced to six years of probation for having sex with an underage prostitute. Interviewed on the verdict this afternoon, Taylor was probed on the question of whether or not he knew the girl was underage and if the answer is no, as he claims, how could he have not known? Taylor offered a whole bunch of explanations, all of which had him loosely quoting various men who would probably rather not have their words sullied by his extracurricular activities. Herewith, the rationales offered by Taylor, and the individuals from which he cribbed the lines. Sayeth Taylor:

* "This was a working girl who came into my room. She told me she was 19. It is what it is." [David Tepper claims to have popularized the phrase 'it is what it is.']

* "I made a phone call to a friend and he made a phone call. It's the world of prostitution. You never know what you're going to get." [Forest Gump]

* "I didn't pick her up on no playground" [Jeffrey Epstein; exact quote: "It's not like I picked her up on a playground."]

* "I don't card them. I don't ask them for a birth certificate." [Alan Greenspan]

* "I have used the services before. It's one of those crimes you never think you're going to get busted." [Raj Rajaratnam]
