Snippets of interest

Have come across a book of answers that Charles Saatchi ( the name "Saatchi" means "watchmaker" in Iraqui Arabic), has given to lots of different types of questions eg
"Would you describe yourself as a gentleman?" to which Saatchi replied "Certainly. On the basis that a gentleman is a man who can play the accordion but doesn't". 

"What can adults learn from the young people of today?" to which he replies "Do infants enjoy infancy as much as adults enjoy adultery?"

If Saatchi could pose any question to Charles Darwin, James Joyce, Adolf Hitler or Henry V111, what would it be?

Charles Darwin : How was your theory of evolution received when you arrived at the Pearly Gates?

James Joyce : Have you ever tried reading one of your books?

Adolf Hitler : Would it all have been different if you had found success with your paintings?

Henry V111 : Which is more painful, gout or syphilis?

Time for a brush, a purr and slumber after so much thinking.
