En passant

Been working harder than I like to (in between returning from a sweaty holiday and flubbing badly at the Guv’nor’s annual quiz). So of course I went blog-surfing.

Surprisingly, Sonia Faleiro reads an Elle story about Playboy babes and their TV series. Strange. I mean, we men used to read Debonair and Playboy for the literary content – what would women appreciate in them?

And the ever-dependable Prufrock Two points me back to a Master. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Allan Stewart Konigsberg.

(How the fornication does one embed links in rediffblogs?!)

Don't go link crazy. Most annoying it is.

Ph, how about 'don't click'? Links mostly happen in my vela posts anyway.

"Hmm, I thought, I'll get boobs. If I didn't get them, I wouldn't be here. They were my best investment."

WOW... that Kendra (Playboy bunny #3)sounds like a card-carrying Mensa member.

If I remember the- ahem- pictorial-essays in Debonair, I'm shocked I wasn't reading it for the articles.

The entire dirt by Allen from 'Love and Death' went like this; "The question is have I learned anything about life. Only that human being are divided into mind and body. The mind embraces all the nobler aspirations, like poetry and philosophy, but the body has all the fun. The important thing, I think, is not to be bitter... if it turns out that there IS a God, I don't think that He's evil. I think that the worst you can say about Him is that basically He's an underachiever. After all, there are worse things in life than death. If you've ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman, you know what I'm talking about. The key is, to not think of death as an end, but as more of a very effective way to cut down on your expenses. Regarding love, heh, what can you say? It's not the quantity of your sexual relations that counts. It's the quality. On the other hand if the quantity drops below once every eight months, I would definitely look into. Well, that's about it for me folks. Goodbye. "

Btw, one good way to get access to Woody Allen quotes is to click on his movies in http://www.imdb.com and then read the 'movie quotes' section.

Much mirth!

But the comedy is also in his delivery. This amazing Marshall McLuhan moment for one.
