By Larry Lansburgh
“The World’s Greatest Snappy Comebacks” includes:
calm words spoken by a prisoner sentenced to death by hanging
biting comments from a ventriloquist’s dummy who criticized his human for moving his lips a gracious response from a woman who was the world’s leading arms dealer.
You’ll also find classic remarks from the greats—Winston Churchill, Dorothy Parker, W.C. Fields, Mae West, and some people who are all but unknown today.
The book is not simply a list of quotations; it provides behind-the-scenes stories that led to people’s witty remarks, and the pages are filled with photographs.
Larry wrote “The World’s Greatest Snappy Comebacks” because someone insulted him, and he couldn’t think of a Snappy Comeback.
