McQuillan walked into a bar and ordered martini after martini, each time removing the olives and placing them in a jar. When the jar was filled with olives and all the drinks consumed, the Irishman started to leave.
"S'cuse me," said a customer, who was puzzled over what McQuillan had done. "What was that all about?
"Nothing," said the Irishman, "me wife just sent me out for a jar of olives."

The man in the Gospel with the Legion of spirits was very spiritual - but they were demonic spirits. It's no good being spiritual unless you have the right Spirit.

Even with THAT spirit, you need the right Spirit.


But neither nature nor wine nor anything else can be enjoyed if we have the wrong attitude towards happiness, and Omar* (or Fitzgerald) did have the wrong attitude towards happiness. He and those he has influenced do not see that if we are to be truly gay, we must believe that there is some eternal gaiety in the nature of things. We cannot enjoy thoroughly even a pas-de-quatre at a subscription dance unless we believe that the stars are dancing to the same tune. No one can be really hilarious but the serious man. "Wine," says the Scripture, "maketh glad the heart of man," but only of the man who has a heart. The thing called high spirits is possible only to the spiritual. Ultimately a man cannot rejoice in anything except the nature of things. Ultimately a man can enjoy nothing except religion. GKC, "Heretics"
