That rhymes better with "liquor" in place of "whiskey". ;-)

    It ought to be:

    "Candy is dandy,
    but liquor is quicker."
    -- Dorothy Parker

    </pedantic mode>

    She's also the one who said/wrote:

    "Gentleman seldom make passes
    At girls who wear glasses."

      In context, "quicker" does rhyme with "liquor" in the song lyrics, too:

      wine is fine, but whiskey is quicker suicide is slow with liquor

      I think if you asked Ozzy, he'd be willing to credit Dorothy Parker as inspiration as suggested by nimdokk. :-)
