From The Bishop's Jaegers

She kissed the man and forgot to stop.

--Thorne Smith, The Bishop's Jaegers


  1. I completely forgot about this line! I love it!

    I've been looking for lines to add to my Funny Quotes section of my site dedicated to Thorne Smith, so thanks for jogging the memory and for keeping the spirit of Thorne Smith alive.

    This line reminds me of the Ring Lardner classic:

    "Shut up," he explained.

    I'm really glad I stumbled upon your blog. You're doing a great fun job with it!

  2. Thanks, Michael, I've put another Thorne Smith quote up in your honor.

    It's actually only a fraction of the three-paragraph description of Dopey, one of my favorite passages in literature.
