GUEST,Joe_F blue books revisited (Rise Up Singing) (63* d) RE: blue books revisited (Rise Up Singing) 14 Mar 06


No, excellence had not been mentioned, and I do not own a revolver. I am not actually a curmudgeon on the other side; I am a curmudgeon on the fence. I agree with Barry about the charms of that type of sing, but I can enjoy an evening in RUSsia as well.

It may be worth explaining that "I reach for my revolver" was a catchphrase in the years around 1940. A character in a Nazi play had said "When I hear the word culture, I release the safety catch on my Browning", and that was mistranslated as "...I reach for my revolver" & misattributed to Goebbels. I myself have a fair number of revolver words.
