Churchill: "Bessie, you're ugly, and tomorrow morning I shall be sober" A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on. If Hitler invaded hell I would make at least a favourable reference to the devil in the House of Commons. Man upon seeing Churhcill leaving the bathroom without washing his hands : At Eton they taught us to wash our hands after using the toilet.
Churchill: At Harrow they taught us not to piss on our hands. Unknown MP sitting behind Churchill on the back benches during his twilight years, to adjacent colleague, sotto voce: He's not what he used to be. They say he's gone senile.
