    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. :-)
