Top 10 wits

To perpetuate the known cliche that laughter is the best medicine, here’s my top 10 wits of all time.

1. Oscar Wilde, who on his deathbed was heard to say, “Either those curtains go, or I do.”

2. Samuel Beckett – “We are all born mad, some remain so.”

3. Stephen Fry – “Many people would no more think of entering journalism than the sewage business – which at least does us all some good.”

4. Dorothy Parker– “Wit has truth in it; wisecracking is simply calisthenics with words.”

5. Samuel Clemens, A.K.A. Mark Twain – “An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.”

6. Groucho Marx – “From the moment I picked up your book until I laid it down, I was convulsed in laughter. Someday I intend reading it.”

7. Ellen Degeneres – “I feel like I have a hangover, without all the happy memories and mystery bruises.”

8. Woody Allen – “My education was dismal. I went to a series of schools for mentally disturbed teachers.”

9. Jon Stewart – “The democrats seem to be the kind of people who switch to Geico and lose money.”

10. Steven Colbert – “Many states don’t allow the sale of fireworks. Well, to me, it is not the Fourth of July until I’m rolling on the ground, screaming for somebody to put me out.”
