Favourite one-liners

Post by Ivan on Tue Oct 11, 2011 11:50 am

First topic message reminder :

Mae West:-

“A man in the house is worth two in the street”

“You gotta get up early in the morning to catch a fox and stay up late at night to get a mink”

“When women go wrong, men go right after them”

“Men aren’t attracted to me by my mind. They’re attracted by what I don’t mind”

“It’s not the men in my life that counts, it’s the life in my men”

“A hard man is good to find”

“Keep a diary and someday it’ll keep you”

“She’s the kind of girl who climbed the ladder of success, wrong by wrong”

“I’ve found that too much of a good thing can be wonderful”

“I never hated a man enough to give him his diamonds back”

“Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before”

“Marriage is a great institution, but I’m not ready for an institution”

“Give a man a free hand and he’ll run it all over you”

“Sometimes it seems to me that I’ve known so many men that the FBI ought to come to me first to compare fingerprints”

On being told that ten men were waiting to meet her at her home: “I’m tired, send one of them home”

Why is it considered good for the Falkland Islanders, but bad for the Scots, to have the right of self-determination?

Politicians are people who, when they see light at the end of the tunnel, go out and buy some more tunnel.

How about a two- liner?

Last week was considerably enhanced by hearing the following story about Bob Dylan -

Annoying Person " Hey, Bob - I know you , but you don't know me..."

Dylan  " Let's keep it that way..."

Things could  only have been improved were I to have seen Michael Gove fall headlong into a full septic tank...

Restaurants that specialise in seafood often have a lobster tank from which you can "choose" your forthcoming meal.  I have always suspected that this was open to sleight-of-hand on the waiters' part, which now seems to be substantiated by a report from the USA about a big lobster being returned to the sea after 20 years gazing at diners through the glass of his tank home in Long Island NY.

I am grateful for confirmation that I can continue repeating my star turn in such fish restaurants by pointing to a lobster and loudly saying,
"I think I'd like to have that one again!"
