VANITY ANECDOTES continued

 

MY DAD WANTS TO BE A BRIDEGROOM IN EVERY WEDDING!

It was one of his own sons who so aptly characterised Theodore Roosevelt, saying,
“Father always had to be the centre of attention. When he went to a wedding, he wanted to be the bride groom; and when he went to a funeral, he wanted to be the corpse”.

DISRAELI’S TRICK

There is a good story told of the way Disraeli got rid of an unfortunate applicant for a baronetcy (the rank of a baronet) upon whom, for many reasons, it was impossible to confer the honour.
“You know I cannot give you a baronetcy, said Disraeli, but you can tell your friends I offered you a baronetcy and that you refused it. That is far better.”

GENERAL WOULD HAVE DIED YEARS AGO!– LINCOLN

In an interview between President Lincoln and Petroleum V. Nasby, the name came up of a recently deceased politician of Illinois whose merit was blemished by great vanity. His funeral was very largely attended.
“If General……….
Had known how big a funeral he would have had, said Mr Lincoln, he would have died years ago”.

YOU ARE WONDERFUL!

Oscar Levant was known for his self-esteem. Occasionally he would tell this story on himself. “Once I was saying to an old friend how remarkable was our congeniality since we had practically nothing in common.
Oh, but we have, replied the friend, I think you are wonderful and you agree with me.”

HENRY IV EXEMPTED PROS.
Henry IV enacted some sumptuary laws, prohibiting the use of gold and jewels in dress; but they were for some time ineffectual. He passed a supplement to them which completely answered his purpose. In this last he exempted from the prohibitions of the former after one month, all prostitutes and pickpockets. Next day there was not a jewel nor golden ornament to be seen.

I AM D’ANNUNZIO! DON’T YOU KNOW?

In London, D Annunzio, the Italian poet asked a policeman to direct him to his destination and remarked,
“I am D Annunzio! The bobby did not understand. Where upon the genius burst forth into oaths and commanded his secretary to present that ignorant lout with copies of all his works”.
