Hey blogfans! I'm back and better than ever! (And by that I mean that I'm still totally awesome. Duh.)

Today we're going to talk about the best comic writer of all time, bar none. Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse. In all honesty, I think that name speaks for itself. Have you ever heard a funnier one? I didn't think so.

P.G. Wodehouse is best known for his Jeeves and Blandings Castle novels, and wrote and contributed to many other works including journalism, plays, musicals, and short stories. Wikipedia states (and I wouldn't quote it if I could put it any better, but I can't), "His writing style is notable for its unique blend of contemporary London clubroom slang with elegant, classically-informed drawing-room English." Short version, it's hysterical. Wodehouse has this perfect way of making even the most ridiculous vernacular sound normal and even the most formal language sound natural. Seriously, read it if you haven't. You won't regret it. I promise.

And for real, Pelham. Grenville. Wodehouse. Really, though.
