Always marry the cook

          "Who's Fink-Nottle?" asked Plank.
          "The one who eloped with Stoker," said Pop.
          "Who's Stoker?" asked Plank. I don't think I've ever  come across a fellow with a greater thirst for information.
          "The cook."
          "Ah, yes. I remember you telling me. Knew what he was doing, that chap. I'm strongly opposed to anyone marrying anybody, but if you're going to marry someone, you unquestionably save something from the wreck by marrying a woman who knows what to do with a joint of beef."

(from Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves, by Sir Pelham Wodehouse)
