You know Heidi's fun linky-up-thing? Well, it's time for that again. This month, it's SUCH a fun one. "A funny story opening in Literature." I knew immediately which one I would show you. Guess which author it's going to be. Yep. Wodehouse. You did guess him, didn't you? Well, you should've. Wodehouse is the king of comedy and that's all there is to say upon the matter.

My snippet is...

Freddie Rooke gazed coldly at the breakfast-table. Through a gleaming eye-glass he inspected the revolting object which Barker, his faithful man, had placed on a plate before him.
"Barker!" His voice had a ring of pain.
"Poached egg, sir."
Freddie averted his eyes with a silent shudder.
"It looks just like an old aunt of mine," he said. "Remove it!"
