This quote is extracted at the end of a TV interview, coming right out of the famous mouth of Christopher Hitchens:

If you gave Falwell an enema, he could be buried in a matchbox.

Christopher Hitchens on Jerry Falwell, Fox News

Ouch! The sharp-witted, unapologetic and surprisingly erudite Hitchens comes up with yet another in-your-face quote, this time on the late Reverend Falwell. This quote implies that if you removed the shit from Falwell that he will be left of nothing.
