PG Wodehouse

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

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?
