Famous quotes containing the words iowa and/or chops:
“When I was growing up I used to think that the best thing about coming from Des Moines was that it meant you didnt come from anywhere else in Iowa. By Iowa standards, Des Moines is a mecca of cosmopolitanism, a dynamic hub of wealth and education, where people wear three-piece suits and dark socks, often simultaneously.”
—Bill Bryson (b. 1951)
“We tried pathetic appeals to the wandering waiters, who told us they are coming, Sir in a soothing toneand we tried stern remonstrance, & they then said they are coming, Sir in a more injured tone; & after all such appeals they retired into their dens, and hid themselves behind sideboards and dish-covers, still the chops came not. We agreed that of all virtues a waiter can display, that of a retiring disposition is quite the least desirable.”
—Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (18321898)
