“Every calling is great when greatly pursued.”
—OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES SR., American physician and writer
A man was sitting at a table in a restaurant when he called his waiter over. “What can I get you, sir?” asked the busy waiter.
“Are you sure you’re the same waiter I ordered from?” asked the man.
“Yes, I am. Why do you ask?”
“Because I was expecting a much older man by now.”
Who was the favorite classical composer of Charles Schulz, creator of the Peanuts comic strip?

Brahms. But Schulz didn’t make him the favorite of toy-piano-playing Schroeder in the comic strip because he thought the name Beethoven sounded and looked funnier.
