Horse play

The film about the racehorse Seabiscuit has just been released in Britain. The reviewer in The Independent was not impressed. He concluded, "Should you chance it for a night out? Neigh, neigh, and thrice neigh."

Why do I hear that quote in Kenneth Williams' voice?

Linda, I've just come home with a (remaindered) copy of Cassell's Humorous Quotations gathered by Nigel Rees. By chance, I came across this entry; Infamy, infamy - they've all got it in for me! Line from film Carry on Cleo.

It was spoken by Kenneth Williams as Julius Caesar. However, Frank Muir asserts that he and Dennis Norden wrote it for a radio sketch in Take It From Here. The words again belonged to Julius Caesar, this time played by Dick Bentley. Talbot Rothwell had very properly asked their permission to re-use the line.

Lots more gems to enjoy too!

Infamy, infamy - they've all got it in for me!


Wonderful! I bet Groucho wished he'd written that!


On his comedy album "Circle," Eddie Izzard croons:

"Blasphemy! Blasphe-you! Blasphe-everybody in the room!"

I'm too young for "Take it from here", but it would have been a good tag line for the final round of "My word"
