On re-reading Jeeves and Wooster

Has there ever been so nice and easily imposed upon a person as Bertie Wooster? Yes, he's not an intellectual powerhouse, but what he goes through for his friends!

Noblesse oblige and all that.

My all-time favorite sentence is from The Inimitable Jeeves:

"Few people have ever looked fouler than young Bingo in the fungus."

Enjoy the re-reading. I know I always do.

I took my son to get glasses the other day and one pair led me to say, "You look like Bertie Wooster!" Which I liked, but him? Not so much.

Oh cool. My dad just lent me Carry on Jeeves which I haven't read for a long time, and I'm looking forward to it (if I ever get a moment to myself to read!)
