08/11/2011

Churchill: Madam, would you sleep with me for five million pounds?
Socialite: My goodness, Mr Churchill! Well, I suppose – we would have to discuss terms, naturally.
Churchill: Would you sleep with me for five pounds?
Socialite: Mr Churchill, what kind of woman do you think I am?!
Churchill: Madam, we’ve already established that. Now we are haggling about the price.
