Here’s a continuation of last week’s sharing of a few brief “Zingers” for your reading enjoyment:

  • Actress: “I enjoyed reading your book. Who wrote it for you?” Author Ilka Chase: “Darling I’m so glad that you liked it. Who read it to you?”
  • Dorothy Parker: “Mr. Coolidge, I’ve made a bet against a fellow who said it was impossible to get more than two words out of you.” President Calvin Coolidge: “You lose.”
  • New York Mayor Ed Koch versus Andrew Kirtzman: “I can explain this to you but I can’t comprehend it for you.”
  • Frank Sinatra on Robert Redford: “Well at least he has found his true love. What a pity he can’t marry himself.”
  • Senator Fritz Hollings when challenged by his Republican opponent Henry McMastor: “I’ll take a drug test if you’ll take an IQ test.”
  • Reporter: “What do you think of western civilization?” Mahatma Gandhi: “I think it would be a good idea.”
  • Member of British Parliament: “Mr. Churchill, must you fall asleep while I’m speaking?” Winston Churchill: “No. It’s purely voluntary.”
  • Lady Nancy Astor: “Winston, if you were my husband, I’d put poison in your coffee.” Winston Churchill: “Nancy, if you were my wife I would drink it.”
