Greatest Put Down Ever?

Put Down

Greatest Put Down Ever

Over the weekend in conversation with friends we somehow got on to the subject of what was the greatest comeback or put down we had ever heard.

It brought up what is a true story

I have a friend who in his absence it was asked by someone,

“Who gave him permission to go on holiday”

The response, bearing in mind my friend is of African Caribbean ancestry was two words,

“William Wilberforce.”

Brilliant.

Footnote.  2013 is the 180th anniversary of the 1833 Act abolishing slavery throughout the British Empire.
