What the world needs is more geniuses with humility.  There are so few of us left.”   —   (Not YUR)  Oscar Levant

(This guy actually was a genius.  I’m just a wise-guy, wannabe – kinda dualistic – bonehead/genius.  A very clever quote, but a very easy Cryptoquote solve.  I always note the punctuation first, so I saw THERE ARE right off the bat.  And then THE.  I’ve visited his grave before, in Westwood Village Memorial Park.  Which is in LA, but NOT “downtown” Los Angeles, as was pointed out to me by one of my readers some time ago.  If you’re ever in LA, I highly recommend visiting WVMP, as it’s only an acre or so large, but has so many big name celebrities – of all ilk – buried there.  Forest Lawn Memorial Park is like 300 acres, and would take you multiple days to get through.  The picture I chose of Oscar shows the effects of his life of smoking.  He died of a heart attack, at only 65.  I may not be a genius, but I still have my own teeth, and don’t look like some sort of ghoul.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

An epigram is only a wisecrack that’s played Carnegie Hall.”   —   Oscar Levant

(This Levant was a very funny guy!  Similar to Victor Borge, who was also a very clever musician/comedian.  The next time I go to LA, I’m going to look up old Oscar, at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery.  I’ll say howdy to his wife, June too!  So many greats are resting there.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Underneath this flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.”   —   Oscar Levant

(Hey!  I resemble that remark!  I could stand to drop a good twenty pounds.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A pun is the lowest form of humor – when you don’t think of it first.”   — Oscar Levant
