    It is said that once at a party, he asked a very beautiful and rather obnoxious woman to go to bed with him for 1000. She ummed and ahhed but finally agreed. He then asked would she go to bed with him for 10. She exclaimed "Do you take me for a whore?" He replied "Madam, we've already established what you are. All we're doing now is arguing about the price."

    (It is also said that GBS once tried to get shirty with Bram Stoker, the author of "Dracula". Stoker, a noted athlete, flattened him with one punch.)
