Regarding corsets, I'm recalling something my wife's English grandmother said, "Any gal wearing a corset can hold her breath longer than any Navy Seal can ever hope to!"

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

Why did God make women both pretty and foolish? He made them pretty so that men would love them. He made them foolish so they would love men.

I don't know if this has been posted so here goes:

Couldn't find it on a search, but one that has stuck with me ever since I heard it in the movie:

from The Avengers:

LOKI: There are no men like me.

OLD MAN: There are always men like you.

How about one from the old British TV series. The Avengers was so long ago many don't know about it. The continuing characters were John Steed and Emma Peel.

Idiot baddie: But I was in the Brigade! (meaning officer service in Her Majesty's Brigade of Guards, in other words very upper class.)

John Steed: Oh really? Boys', Fire or St Johns Ambulance? (I think you USians have similar organisations.)

Cheers
John
