Churchill was a man to turn an insult. 

How about the one where he was supposedly accosted at a party by a woman saying, "You are drunk!!" - to which he replied, "Yes, madam - but you are ugly and tomorrow I shall be sober"...

Would be his style according to other tales about him.

At a party, a women confronted Churchill and told him "If I was married to you, I would put poison in your drink"

Churchill responded:

Madam, if we are married, I would drink it"

Mark Twain

This is great ......

Love Mark Twain's witticism and sarcasm. The actor Hal Holbrook does a great imitation of him in his Mark Twain Tonight shows. I was fortunate to catch one of his live appearances in Milwaukee years ago.

I didn't see him live but did see the productions on television.  Holbrook did a brilliant job of imitating Mr Twain.

He does a wonderful job of this, and had apparently been doing it for decades until he passed away last month at the age of 95 - RIP Hal Holbrook.

Sad news about his passing. I missed that. Didn't see mention of his passing in the obituary topic. Going to rectify that oversight now.

Yes sad indeed, another great actor that had graced our screens in varied roles. Been in some great movies.

RIP
