Are you tired of "That's what she said" jokes? Then this bot is for you! It will join a specified channel and respond to the configured trigger phrases with what she really said, i.e. a quotation from a notable woman. It will also respond to any direct message with a quotation.

Many quotes taken from this excellent resource: http://womenshistory.about.com/library/qu/blqulist.htm
