A lot of people know that Dorothy Parker was a famous wit. A lot of people don’t know that in her youth, at 4’11, she was also considered a snappy style icon. Another thing a lot of people don’t know? That she and Robert Benchley subscribed to undertaker trade magazines and then cut them up and added jokes to make their own magazine From Grave To Gay!
Why is this not a magazine that exists right now? Fine. Change the word “gay”. Fine. Other than that. Why don’t you start it? Why don’t you dress like Dorothy Parker, find a platonic male best friend who is equally funny and go off and do things? Because you don’t have her wardrobe. Okay. I’ll help. And I’ll include some quotes! Weird ones, not that one about martinis, again!
