The Writers Almanac this morning had these words of wisdom from S.J. Perelman --

"I guess I'm just an old mad scientist at bottom. Give me an underground laboratory, half a dozen atom-smashers, and a beautiful girl in a diaphanous veil waiting to be turned into a chimpanzee, and I care not who writes the nation's laws."

Joe

I think he speaks for all of us. And nobody was better at articulating such sentiments than S. J. Perelman And His Electric Vocabulary.

I could never understand why they wanted to turn beautiful girls into chimpanzees. They always lost me there. Loved the outfits, loved the headquarters. Great way to impress beautiful girls. Use what you have boys!
