>> Oh dear Nick, I just hope your wife doesn't read this digest, else
like us, she will want to know how YOU know, what a cheap New Orleans
whorehouse smells like. Actually, perhaps we don't want to know ;~) <<

That's actually a line from the movie "Patton," for which actor George
C. Scott won an Academy Award.

During a wartime interview, a member of the press asked General Patton
about the pearl-handled revolvers he wore.

Patton promptly replied, "Only a pimp from a cheap, New Orleans
whorehouse would wear pearl-handled revolvers! These are ivory-handled."

My Mrs. knows the story well :-)
