Bad's The Best

Canning was once asked by an English clergyman, at whose parsonage he

was visiting, how he liked the sermon he had preached that morning.

"Why, it was a short sermon," quoth Canning. "O yes," said the preacher,

"you know I avoid being tedious." "Ah, but," replied Canning, "you

were tedious."
