Yes, it’s PG Wodehouse, and I laughed and laughed. Well, everyone has to encounter the old jokes for the first time. This was the only PG I recall anything about, Uncle Dynamite, a man who speaks like a full grown lion that just received an ounce of shot in the posterior. I couldn’t find that particular line, but I know it’s in there somewhere.
I read a number of PGs, mostly Jeeves, and P'Smiths, but I only remember the main characters. Recently I skimmed a bunch of them and was unable to tell which I had read and which not. But then, the upper crust folk have never interested me. I think I feared becoming rich in case I turned into one of them. Yes, I know, be careful what you wish for.....
