    Mrs Godfrey should get a new job as a drill sergeant.

    Very appropriate that Nate should like that quote, as it was first used by Satan in a play by George Bernard Shaw. (Not JFK, he later borrowed it to use in one of his speeches—or more accurately one of his speechwriters did.)

    Don’t know about the JFK reference, but Teddy used the quote in his eulogy to his brother Robert in 1968.

    Gee, I thought, upon first reading today’s exciting adventure, that this thought was a ’lil deep for Nate to have thunk up all on his lonesome……..wonder if he realized at the time who said it first?…, did Satan actually say: “WHY NOT?” As Artur would say: Oooooh! Tell!!

    Not entirely accurate. The original line, spoken by the serpent to Eve, begins with “When you and Adam talk, I hear you say ‘Why?’ Always ‘Why?’ You see things; and you say ‘Why?’” Shaw didn’t write the first half of the quote as it’s commonly known today. An early “borrower” tinkered with it.
