TONGUE LASHINGS

A BIT OF HUMOUR, BEFORE A THOUGHT THAT FLASHED THROUGH MY MIND

Gotta laugh at Tongue lashings in THE AGE today. These included:-

Earl of Sandwich: “Wilkes, I do not know whether you will die on the gallows or of the pox.”

Wilkes: “That, my lord, depends on whether I embrace your principles or your mistress.”

Bette Davis, as a Hollywood starlet passes:  “There goes the good time that was had by all.”

Dorothy Parker, reviewing the play I Am a Camera:  “Me no Leica.”

Margot Asquith, when movie star Jean Harlow sounded the ‘T’ in her first name: “No dear, the T is silent, as in Harlow.”

I wonder about the morality of seemingly intelligent people who can’t see permitting land rent to be privatised consigns their children–humanity for that matter–to lead terribly stunted lives?

Where’s religious morality on this question? As Pauline Hanson would say: “Please explain?” – but I think we might be waiting a long time for an explanation from the men in mitres.

“No, they have their reasons?”  Oh?  What might they be, then?

(BTW!)
