To put someone down effectively you have to be funny. Otherwise it won’t work. It’s why I like Gore Vidal. Unfortunately he is dead. And Tennessee Williams. He too is dead. People will let you down.
GG, and he is not the only one, called me ‘a looker’. This is rich coming from a gay guy. I was flattered. Let me not go off topic. Topic being, and I shouldn’t be laughing: Looks. Yes, so some Royal was born the other day and someone commented on her parents, saying that by the ‘looks’ of them she won’t be a looker. How much more cruel can you be? On all fronts. Being the scientist I am not I quickly computed that, given genes tend to jump a generation, she will not look like one of her parents. Not at all. She’ll look like her grandmother. I shan’t elaborate on this since I am going through a terrible spell of paranoia: The Mafia is onto me.
