British Parliamentary debates, 1763

Lord Sandwich: "Really, Mr. Wilkes, I don't know whether you'll die on the gallows or of the pox."
John Wilkes: "That depends, my lord, on whether I embrace your principles or your mistress."

I think I'd watch more parliamentary debates if the insults were as amusing as this and not just vituperative children yelling at each other indicating they need a 'time-out.'

And I would even watch them with you as we laughed at different times. :)
