Mahatma Kane Jeeves.



Mahatma Kane Jeeves was a nom de plume of WC Fields. He created that name because when he was a kid there was always a rich guy in vaudeville acts who said to his butler, "My hat, my cane, Jeeves."

No reason for this post except for laughter. Laughter and cynicism. They sometimes go hand in hand. Or as WC Fields himself might say, "Never cry over spilt milk, because it may have been poisoned."

Cynics are a dying breed. Have you seen this?

I just ordered a few for myself and my most sarcastic work friends. We will most likely die wearing those bracelets.

A day without cynicism is a day without sunshine.
