“Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit, wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.”
Miles Kington (1941 – 2008)
Born to an American mother and a British father, Kington studied Modern Language at Trinity College, Oxford and began a writing career at the satirical magazine Punch. He was a member of the comical cabaret quartet Instant Sunshine for many years as the double-bassist. Kington is also credited with the invention of Franglais, a mash-up of English and French that he turned into a series of popular books.
