PG Wodehouse

I took a quick skim of the threads and noticed a lot of Ellis but no mention of Wodehouse, so I thought I'd make the point of bringing him up. I recently finished reading Code of the Woosters by him, and while I thought I wouldn't find a more amusing book than Catch-22, I have. It's not necessarily the convoluted plot threads that make up the otherwise formulaic plotline that amuses me so much as the incredible word play that Wodehouse is engaged in. I was chuckling constantly as I read it, and have now - from time to time - taken up writing e-mails and whathaveyou in a style akin to ol' Bertie, just because I can't let go of how incredibly funny the writing is. Has anyone else stumbled onto Wodehouse and had a similar enjoyment?
