Quote of the Day

Sir John Mortimer, author of the “Rumpole of the Bailey” series (and the “Tea With Mussolini” screenplay, among others), answers a meme question in Sunday’s NYT magazine.

Three little pigs: We acquired the pigs last year. My wife was born on a pig farm and has always been very fond of pigs. Of course, they are for eating, which is why they are named Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. You wouldn’t want to eat Rufus, Marcus and Esmeralda.

Most assuredly not.

    What? No “Tea Time”? Is there a problem serving bacon and crumpets with your tea?

  2. Mr. Bingley says:

    A friend of mine had sheep named that.
    It’s much like classical/mythological greece: you name determines your destiny.

  3. I hope no one at PETA had his stuff in their library subscription.
