Bertie's stream of consciousness

Bertie babbling on and on about the vices of Roderick Spode....to his face... (bit daft that, if you ask me, unless it just shows the courage spelled out in the Code of the Woosters.)

"It's about time some publicly-spirited person told you where to get off. The trouble with you, Spode, is that just because you've succeeded in convincing a handful of half-wits to disfigure the London scene by going about in black shorts, you think you're someone. You hear them shouting "Hail, Spode!" and you imagine it's the voice of the people. That is where you make your bloomer. What the voice of the people is actually saying is, "Look at that frightful ass Spode swanking about in footer bags! Did you ever in your life see such a perfect perisher?"

I'll post a link to this website devoted to Wodehouse quotes. It's absolutely a riot! And Bertie's favorite expressions like, "he was clearly lacking in the milk of human k." ! Also, 'odds-boddikins, Spode, wait a moment'. Some other ones that are CLASSIC!! til next time.
