"Being witty...is being annoying with charm."
I'm not sure this is true, but it is funny.
It reminds me of a video I saw years ago where they had a handsome guy and a nerdy guy tell the same mediocre joke to a group of women. The nerdy guy got eye rolls and the handsome guy got big laughs and a lot of arm touches.
I guess the lesson is...who and how a message is given effects how it is received. I know you know this, but it is good to remember it.
