    • 1960, P. G. Wodehouse, Jeeves in the Offing, chapter VIII and XII:
      It is frequently said of Bertram Wooster that he is a man who can think on his feet, and if the necessity arises he can also use his loaf when on all fours. [...] “Why didnt the idiot tell her not to open it?” “It was his first move. ‘Ive found a letter from you here, precious,’ she said. ‘On no account open it, angel,’ he said.
