Professor Irwin Corey
Sunday morning and the poker is in the fire. Gotta love these 6 day per week jobs.
Enroute to other things (ETOT) I blundered into the website of Professor Irwin Corey. This guy dates from way back on the timeline.
Professor Corey is credited with numerous quips, among them-
“If we don’t change direction soon, we’ll end up where we’re going.”
“Wherever you go, there you are.”
“You can get further with a kind word and a gun than you can with just a kind word.”
Corey’s schtick is parody of the egghead elite. He portrays a kind of daffy, absent-minded professor who is forever stuck in lecture mode. He stitches together impressive sounding language into a maze of dead ends leading to a hilarious rhapsody of non sequiturs.
There is probably no relation to the other professor Corey at Harvard.
