Winston Churchill's Wit

    Winston Churchill's Wit

    Discussion started by Canadiano - Aug 21, 2002

    So apparently he would drink a lot and sleep in the parliamentary meetings. One day, the guy next to him wakes him up and tells him that his "sentry post is open" (fly is down). Churchill says,
    "Well, is the sentry alert and standing at attention? Or is he sleeping on the sandbags."


    Another time, he is at a party of some sort, and a woman comes to Sir Winston and tells him that he is drunk in a bitchy manner. Says Churchill,
    "I'm drunk, and you're ugly. Tomorrow, I'll be sober, and you will still be ugly."


    told to me by a friend, who heard these from his boss.

    that guy was a classic drunk....

    the way to make the perfect martini according to winston churchill: "fill your glass with gin and glance at a bottle of vermouth across the room"

    i can think of a few bartenders who could use that advice....sorry fucks

    I think it's a good idea to at least touch the vermooth bottle to the shaker.
    It makes a nice 'kling' sound and announces to the room that it's ready to rock.

    yes... shaking bruises the liquor.

    BUT... the average 'shaker' is also a strainer, which is essential to a nice martini.
    the ice is on my wrist, not in my drink!

    I like a bit of a dirty matrini some times,
    but if the fucker just pours in olive brine
    from the bottle, I'll be sending it back.

    i never realised what a witty old chap sir winston was...apart from liking a drink or 10, he suffered from depression, which he called his 'black dog', when he was bad he would think about throwing himself under trains and shit like that, but fuck that, he did a pretty good job for a depressive alcoholic...hmmm, maybe a good biography to read, want to hear more of his wit
