Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill was a quite a character. Here, for your
enjoyment, is a bit of a description of him:

(1) Seeing how rude Churchill was to his wife (and everyone
else), a lady once told him, “Winston, if I was your wife, I
would poison your tea.” Churchill replied, “And madame, if I was
your husband, I would drink it.” Ouch.

(2) At a dinner a party, a (different) lady thought Churchil had
had a bit too much to drink, and told him so: “Winston, you are
drunk.” Churchill’s answer: “And madame, you are ugly. The
difference is, in the morning, I will be sober.” Ouch Ouch.

(3 and final) The famous playwright George Bernard Shaw, once
wrote a letter to Churchill along these lines: “…I would be
delighted if you could attend the first performance of my new
play…You may bring a friend, if you have one.” Churchill was
not going to take that sitting down; his reply: “I apologize
that I cannot attend the first performance of your play, but I
will be happy to attend the second performance, if you have one.”
