Daily Dose

From The Diary of a Nobody, by George and Weedon Grossmith


'He seemed quite affected, so I turned to look at something else and stood in front of a portrait of a jolly-looking middle-aged gentleman, with a red face and a straw hat.  I said to Mr. Finsworth: 'Who is this jovial-looking gentleman?  Life doesn't seem to trouble him much.'  Mr. Finsworth said: 'No, it doesn't.  He is dead too -- my brother.'"

From Chapter 19
