r Comeback General here again., While
some have argued that my comeback
was the best of all time (even though it
never happened), here are acme of the
best comebacks of all time (and these
all really happened!):
After a long day of shooting a film in
Hollywood, John Barrymore and some
fellow actors stopped in at Lucey' s, a
popular watering hole near Paramount
Studios. After drinks,
Barrymore excused go to the

And so, madam, is this."
Truman Capote - At the height of his
popularity, he was drinking one evening with
friends in a crowded Key West bar. Nearby sat
a couple, both inebriated. The woman
recognized Capote, walked over to his table,
and gushingly asked him to autograph a paper
napkin. The woman' s husband, angry at his
wife' s display of interest in another man,
staggered over to Capote' s table and
assumed an intimidating position directly in
front of the diminutive writer. He then

Sir Winston Churchill - This one involves a
London party and Bessie Braddock, a socialist
Member of Parliament from Liverpool, who finally
had enough of Mr. Churchill being drunk at
parties. She reproached Churchill by charging,
Winston, you' re drunk!" The Grand Old Man may
have had one too many drinks, but he still had his
wits about him, replying: "You' re right, Bessie.
And you' re ugly. But tomorrow morning, I' ll be
sober. And you' ll still be ugay."

replied: "Nancy, if you were my wife, I' d drink it."
President Calvin Coolidge - He was a relatively
quiet man and was known for his brevity,
though the few words he had made quite an
impression (he once said, ''I' never been
hurt by something I did not say." After an
recital, an acclaimed and heavily
respected opera singer was invited to the
White House. But apparently performing for
the president was quite a frightening
experience and her performance left much to

took a flight on Eastern Airlines in the . A
flight attendant was making her final checks on the
passengers, but noticed Ali failed to fasten his seat
belt. She kindly asked him to do so, but Ali replied
quite arrogantly, "Superman don' t’ need no seat
belt." Not intimidated by the boxer? reputation and
f fame, the flight attendant replied: "Superman don' t
need no airplane either."
Abraham Lincoln was mat the most attractive
president, but he was, in a sense, almost
fascinatingly ugly. During a debate, Lincoln was
accused by his more hostile opponent of being
Lincoln managed to accomplish what
few men have done before, he defended himself
without insulting the other man, and even poked
fun at a flaw of his all in the same sentence.
