    Same here. The humor isn't directed at me too as I am a 25 year old Indian but still I find it funny.:biggrin:

    Some of my favorite books are - Code of the Woosters, Right Ho Jeeves , Leave it to Psmith , Summer Lightning , Mulliner Nights .

    I read most of P.G. Wodehouse many years ago and loved them. It's been so long, in fact, I can't even recall the names of any of them, which means they're ripe for re-reading.

    My eldest son caught an episode of BBC's Jeeves and Wooster about a week ago. I remembered I have a copy of "Much Obliged Jeeves" that I've never touched. I've nearly finished it, couldn't put it down, my son is reading it too. Totally addictive, and theres not many books that make me laugh out loud, this does. Need to get some more of them. Bertie Wooster seems to get involved in insane situations, make them worse, (with hilarious consequences) and the original situations sort themselves out anyway.

    I'll try a quote (from memory):

    Bertie Wooster in conversation with his Aunt Dahlia about the death of the husband of the formidable prospective Labour candidate for Market Snodsbury:

    Aunt Dahlia: "He got himself run over by a municipal tram"
    Bertie Wooster: "I don't blame him!"

    I can't explain it.

    Actually, I figured out I went through my Wodehouse phase something like 35 years ago.

    one of my favorite quotes is
    "Half of the world doesn't know how the other three-quarter lives"


    Furthermore, P G Wodehouse books also contain numerous quotes by Shakespeare, Marcus Aurelius , and many others.

    Also Jeeves is known to be a big fan of Spinoza!!
