Madness is to believe that only reality is sanity.

Who can guess where this came from?

First prize is for the correct answer is...I won't sleep with you.

:shock:

Aaaah, shiz! I wanna say I know this... and in fact I've had some internal conflict whilst pondering this idea...Dickens comes to mind for some reason, as does Shakespeare... and Hamlet (Shakespeare's work). Only because I'm sure I heard this from a teacher when we were reading these two authors, of course.I wanna know. Tell me!Maddy (:

Rad I would like nothing better than to have the wit to make up the quote, but I didn't and neither to the best of my knowledge did little Willy Shakespeare. :wav: Keep guessing.Hint: Think: Musical stage play.

Ummm, I said it...and that's my story no matter what lies Des makes up.JasonWill you sleep with me? I had the balls to tell the truth.
Again? You want to sleep with me again?Now if you told the truth then I can't give you the prize of not sleeping with mebecause your answer would be correct, but if I say you didn't say it, then according to what you sayI have told a lie, in fact no matter what I say I have lied, so I cannot even agree that you said it.Therefore you cannot have the prize, but I suspect this is all just a ploy to prove you said it, so you can stop me from giving the prize to someone else, so I will keep the prize for myself. However that doesn't mean I have to sleep alone, because I would be lying if I said that too.After this I think I better give a Second prize of a half a packet of Tylenol, I am keeping half the packet for myself. :wav::wav:

No Hylas, Googling won't help. I tried to do that without a reference coming up. LOLNo not Sweeney Todd. It is spoken by the leading character in a 1964 musical stage play that was made into a movie later.I think you are all pretending to not know the answer. LOL :wav:

Des:I think you think we're all a lot more literary than we are. A lot more in touch with the Arts. That our erudition more closely matches your own than it really does.1964. I think that's about when Hello, Dolly came out. And Fiddler on the Roof. And Funny Girl. And probably several other less notable ones.But I don't know any of them well enough to know that line.Which I guess means I don't get to not sleep with you.C

"Erudition?"So you think there was a special edition for Europe, Cole? I'll have to check on that. :wav: You're in the right ball park with those titles.But around 1964 it just seemed that there was one good stage show after another.The 60s seemed to be full of them all seeking to share their insight into the meaning of everything.I wouldn't be surprised to find out that the number of good shows in that era numbered around the 42 mark.I accidentally heard the line the other day when I was playing the DVD of the movie.I suppose I had heard it before, but it seemed to be more relevant, more needed, than ever before.So I posted it here for a bit of fun and a tease when I found that Google didn't reference it.All shall be revealed tomorrow.In the mean time, sweet dreams unless you find that impossible. :wav:

Oh goodness. Can't you just limit it to telling where the quote came from? Do you really feel obliged to reveal ALL?
