Cecil BaxterYou don't get anything clean without getting something else dirty.
Dr. Samuel Johnson
(1707 - 1784)
My wife had a particular reverence for cleanliness, and desired the praise of neatness in her dress and furniture, as many ladies do, till they become troublesome to their best friends, slaves to their own besoms, and only sigh for the hour of sweeping their husbands out of the house as dirt and useless lumber: a clean floor is so comfortable, she would say sometimes, by way of twitting; till at last I told her, that I thought we had had talk enough about the floor, we would now have a touch at the ceiling.
John Alejandro King
(~1958 - )
I assume when people say 'clean as a whistle,' they mean the outside of the whistle.
- (a.k.a. The Covert Comic)
