Joke 605

The wit of Oscar Wilde from Will & Guy.  You may know some of them but Wilde always bears repeating.

  • A poet can survive everything but a misprint.
  • A true friend stabs you in the front.
  • All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That is his.
  • Bigamy is having one wife too many. Monogamy is the same thing.
  • Men always want to be a woman’s first love – women like to be a man’s last romance.
  • America had often been discovered before Columbus, but it had always been hushed up.
  • There is nothing so difficult to marry as a large nose.
  • There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.
  • I am not young enough to know everything.
  • Always forgive your enemies – nothing annoys them so much.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
