A comic quotation quiz

A comic quotation quiz

Moliere wrote in La critique de l’école des femmes (1663) that ‘it’s an odd job, making decent people laugh.’ In the spirit of making people laugh, we present this quiz drawn from the Oxford Dictionary of Humorous Quotations. Edited by the late Ned Sherrin, the dictionary compiles words of wit and wisdom from writers, entertainers and politicians. Hopefully, by question eight, you will not be able to say ‘Another day gone and no jokes’ (Flann O’Brien, The Best of Myles, 1968)
