If you want sarcasm, look up Don Rickles on You Tube*, especially his roast of Sammy Davis Junior (White man lynched by angry black mob, should have been the headline - everybody laughed except Cassius Clay).

Google: 25 Memorable Quotes from Don Rickles, On Fear and On What's Funny, to see his own attitude to his act, pre Politically Correct era

*You tube, is a Glasgwegian insult apparently.

Yes, for anyone wondering about my recent spate of posts on various subjects and my journal entries, I am a class two genius on The Bromide - Von Helsinger scale (and 0.02 on the Wilsinger* modesty scale).

* That is of course the basis for the famous Australian folk song 'You'll come a Wilsinger Matilda with me.' Not sarcasm I know but self-mockery and depression because there is no whisky in the house at the moment.smiley - wah
