Inflationary Language

Victor Borge


  1. This is fivetastic! Like you, Sean, Victor was never borging. Lifteng my glass of Borgondy wone two you, his pones and music.:)

  2. CherryPie,
    he's [sic!] a class of its own, isn't he?

    Despite I happened to watch only two or three of his shows on TV, I remember Borge as one of the outstanding artists in his genre.

    following my inelevention, I am raising my glass [of Montepulciano] three you, three.

  3. He was a two-off wasn't he? Superbly witty.

  4. Mind you, I thought as a raconteur of much the same era Peter Ustinov came close, in a different way:

    "Comedy is simply a funny way of being serious.

    Contrary to general belief, I do not believe that friends are necessarily the people you like best, they are merely the people who got there first.

    Corruption is nature's way of restoring our faith in democracy.

    Courage is often lack of insight, whereas cowardice in many cases is based on good information.

    If the world should blow itself up, the last audible voice would be that of an expert saying it can't be done." Peter Ustinov (Sorry Seanso, you're just back and I am hijacking your blog and steering it my own way :)

  5. Dear Andrew,
    being based on good information, never would I blame or even attack you for "hijacking" my blog.

    PS: Be sure, my dear-est [sic] friend, I don't like you best.

    ha ha haha ...

    Peter Ustinov fits ideally in this category. Yes.
