Richard Brinsley Sheridan was as famous for his plays as he was for his liberal opinion and was equally as famous for his wit. Sheridan was strolling through Piccadilly Square one day when he met up with two English lords. They decided to join him on his walk and took a position on either side of him.

"I say, Sherry," said one of the lords. "We were just discussing whether you were a rogue or a fool."

Sheridan immediately linked arms with both men and replied, "Why, I do believe I am between both."


  1. I love this! It's so witty. He and Churchill would make a good pair. Their repartee is so clever.

  2. Hee, Sheridan's a riot. I think my favorite Churchill quote was when he was dozing off during someone's speech in the House of Commons and the other guy snapped, "Mr. Churchill, *must* you fall asleep?", to which Curchill replied, "No, it is completely coluntary."

  3. Augh, Churchill not Curchill, sorry.
