Jim Beaver quotes:
"'Are you lost daddy' I arsked tenderly. 'Shut up' he explained." Ring Lardner 1885-1933, The Young Immigrunts, 1920, chapter 10.

************ I just finished an Edmund Wilson essay about why people read detective stories, and he mentions that he's sure the Ring Lardner will be read far beyond his time, and I was laughing to myself thinking how Edmund had gotten that one wrong.
