Snapshots from Green Victoria

My favourite W.C. Fields quote...

...wasn't in a movie. Instead, it came from Fields' habit of cutting out newspaper clippings, some as sparks for comedy ideas, others just stuff that took his fancy. One such clipping had me laughing for days. It was a small advertisement with the headline, "How I Licked My Constipation," upon which, Fields had written...

"Evidently a contortionist..."
