THE HUMOR OF KEY WEST (Intentional and unintentional)

`A cook at the Pirate's Cafe used to put cat hair in the pudding. He said the hairs gave it body.' - From the book, `Tales of Old Key West,' by Archie Peasley `Wetlands have suffered a terrible reputation. How do you react to such words as swamp, bog, stagnant, dank air, miasma, pestilence, mosquitoes, malaria and yellow fever? Do they suggest something of value, something needing protection?' - From a brochure on wetlands by the Florida Keys chapter of the Izaak Walton League of America `The cemetery is a spot illuminated by time, tropics and history. Indeed, it is somehow one of the most living spots in Key West.' - From the Solares Hill guide to old Key West `Remember Hog's Breath is better than no breath at all.' - Slogan of the Hog's Breath Saloon, a local restaurant, boutique, and bar `We had a good time at Key West, and everybody was in a mood to clown, do impromptu jigs and laugh their heads off at almost anything.' - Letter from Margaret Truman (President Truman's daughter) to a friend in 1948
