Brevity is the soul of lingerie*

In honor of blogger poetry day, here are some some pithy words from my boy Ogden Nash:

Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker.

I am so feeling that, good sir.

*Yes, a double-wammy. Can you guess which of my favorite 20th Century wits we can attribute that nugget of truth to? No cheating. Google searches are not allowed.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Willy Wonka, while in the invention room.... Prior to that he said:

"spring time, in the early ring time, birds sing, a ring a ding a ding time, hey hey" while riding a bicycle stirring whipped cream.

Do you want the whole scene?

I had to google it. Dorothy Parker. You were talking about brevity, right? Not candy? Though, I do enjoy both candy and liquor.

I love Ogden Nash...

'The cow is of the bovine ilk.
One end is moo,
the other, milk'

I agree w/Kristin--that quote is from Dorothy Parker, right?
