Sorry Ladies, But We
Couldn't Pass This Up

'A man's only as old as the woman he feels.'
--Groucho Marx. If it helps any, just think of this as a wry companion to the previous post.

...explains a lot.
...and it goes both ways.

...when I close my eyes and touch the parts of my skin that have never hit sunlight, I feel pretty young myself, so there's another way it goes.

It indeed goes both ways, as we noted in our earlier exploration of the "cougar" phenomenon.

Kass, you are a gem.

I wonder which comedian really is the master of the one-liner. Groucho has to be a contender and I suppose Bob Hope. For the Brits I would nominate Ken Dodd – not sure how well he is known outside the UK but he made the Guinness Book of Records for the world's longest ever joke-telling session: 1,500 jokes in three and a half hours (7.14 jokes per minute). He’s in his eighties now and still performing. I’m not sure he’d be the master of the one-liner but I’d put money on his as the master of the throwaway. Only living actor to ever play Yorick – seriously, look it up.

Jim, thanks for teaching us something about Ken Dodd. I will indeed check him out online. As for Bob Hope, despite his having been born in my own town of Cleveland, I don't think he remotely deserves to be considered in this company. To me, he will forever be the king of cornball comedy.
