Weekly Wodehouse #23

As for Gussie Finknottle, many an experienced undertaker would have been deceived by his appearance and started embalming on sight

~P.G. Wodehouse


  1. Sometime back I started reading "The World of Mr. Mulliner" but laid it aside for some reason. I'm happy to say I've taken it up again. A book that makes me laugh out loud is a powerful book indeed.

  2. This is wonderful to hear! (And I must admit that I've never read that particular Wodehouse novel, so I'm going to have to put it on my reading list ;)

  3. It takes place in the Bar Parlor of the "Anglers Rest" and Mr Mulliner tells tales which you know are true because he himself will attest that he has never told an untruth.

  4. Very creative! But, of course, how do we REALLY know he has never told an untruth? Take him at his word? :P I'll have to check out this book later. My school library has a nicely supplied Wodehouse shelf or three, and I should be able to find it there ;)
