Next quote selection poll up, for Typewriters.
We had only one quote at the poll's beginning, but have had some worthy additions since.

Per the instructions given out by Thunderbird on the C2C Discord, attached is my audition for my quote.

EDIT: Since the forums won't let me post the actual MP3, I simply dumped it into a ZIP file.
