Im deadly serious.....and ....

Churchill was amazingly snark gifted, and one of the best was this exchange with Mr Wilde..

Dear Mr Churchill - Here are two tickets to the premier performance of my play; bring a friend, should you have one.

to which he replied..

Dear Mr Wilde

I regret I am unable to attend your performance on that day due to a prior engagement, but will attend the second performance; should there be one.

Churchill was a master of the quip.

I will poorly paraphrase one of his, which is one of my favorites.

Miss, you are ugly.

Sir, you are drunk.

Yes mam, but in the morning I will be sober.

It’s ok long as it remains civil Very Happy my favorite though the ones that ask a question and get a truthful answer then disregard. Like “what do you mean I can’t use a bunch of cheap chinese shit and make it work? “ But there is some damn fine knowledge here so it balances out and keeps us coming back Very Happy I renewed my little gold star just yesterday so I can support all of this Tomfoolery.

Better to remain silent and let people think you're stupid than to open your mouth and erase all doubt.
