    I hear Hillary roasts a baby, though.


    Did you make holiday cookies?
    This is the one issue that is a thorn between us so we probably are better off discussing cookies.

    An old favorite:

    Aristocratic bitch to Churchill:

    "Sir, if you were my husband, I'd poison your tea."

    Churchill's reply:

    "Madam, if you were my wife, I'd drink it."

    Amirite, @Leo2, @Dangemouse?
    The exchange attributed to Sir Winston Churchill and Viscountess Nancy Astor went thus - "Winston, if I were your wife I would put poison in your coffee." To which Churchill replied, "Nancy, if I were your husband, I should drink it!"

    Winston was noted for somewhat acerbic retorts. When the plump Tory-hater Bessie Braddock dismissed Winston harshly for being inebriated, with the words "Winston - you're drunk!" His rather unkind repost was "That may be so Madam, but you are ugly - and in the morning I shall be sober."

    The exchange between Churchill and George Bernard Shaw was hardly more cordial. Shaw sent Churchill two tickets to the opening of his latest play, with these words on the invitation "Bring a friend - if you have one." Churchill is said to have replied that he could not make the first night, but would come on the second night "if there is one".
    Thanks from Babba, Blueneck, Panzareta and 1 others
