in reply to When it comes to wine, I preferů
"Candy is dandy,
but liquor is quicker."
-- Dorothy Parker
She's also the one who said/wrote:
"Gentleman seldom make passes
At girls who wear glasses."
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. :-)
