I like this quote from Chesterton on smoking: "In Catholicism, the pint, the pipe and the Cross can all fit together." (taken from pipes magazine.com: http://pipesmagazine.com/forums/topic/g ... on-smoking)
Dammit. He did not say that, ever. I've addressed this issue already.

Rubes. All of you. Guffawing, nose picking, half-educated rubes. How I despise you.

(I think Luis Buñuel did that to his eye while making a film.)
The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.

Easy on the nose-picking aspersions, Sparky. Glass houses, you know.

Don't forget Fr. Ronald Knox!
Thank you! Having made the journey from the Episcopal Church/Anglo Catholicism into the Roman Catholic Church, I am especially ashamed to say that I was not aware of Fr. Knox until I looked him up after your post. I have some serious reading to do!
Might I suggest The Creed in Slow Motion, for starters, and A Spiritual Aeneid: Being an Account of a Journey to the Catholic Faith(which I've been told is a freebie on Kindle)

About the quote--- "In Catholicism, the pint, the pipe and the Cross can all fit together." It cannot be proven that GK Chesterton didn't say it, only that the citation hasn't yet been found if he did say it.
I like it, and I'm certain GKC could have said it ---he probably would have worked "bacon" in there as well :bacon:

As a result of your input, I have ordered a paperback copy of Evelyn Waugh's biography of Fr. Knox. I will look into getting "A Spiritual Aeneid" for my Kindle, as well! Thanks!

Paintbrush in the nose, meh, I can understand that.

I wondered why he uses a saucer? Who uses a saucer?

1) Missing link--in many ways, he actually was. Falling between impressionism and expressionism, an anarchist both politically and aesthetically, he is a far less well known than deserved artist. Matisse and Derain got the fame.

So, does this prove Darwin had it right? I'll leave that for you to answer, drax, but we have found the missing link!

2) Jo--he never cleansed his palette. In a famous letter to his contemporary, Goose de Cinquantecinq, he wrote, "Why are you always needing to clean things! My writing is dirty [he was also a pornographer] as are my palate and my pipe, and all three shall ever remain so."

3) Why he stuck a brush handle in his nose is anybody's guess.

4) Regarding his fly, see #2 above.

1. Thanks pipe.

2. Lost on most of these people, but amusing. You have the name wrong, though. Cinquantecinq was and remains many things, but he was always true to his roots. You misplaced the nobiliary participle

3. Ill buy it for a dollar.

4. No "de."

Unlike you, I only know nobility from a distance. Thank you for the correction.
Cinquantecinq has a descendant In Arizona, as you noticed. Royalty. But a bit of a "neatnik," like his ancestor.
