How Sweet It Is




"How sweet it is."



Few youths of today are familiar with Jackie Gleason's famous aside. The big man was a star. TV, Broadway, Miami Beach. He symbolized joie de vivre.

Jackie Gleason was no athlete. A good golfer and gambler, but no Olympian except for drinking and eating, especially at Toots Shor's West 52nd Restaurant. One night the comedian challenged his host to a race around the block. First one back pays for dinner. The two men set out running in the opposite direction. Toots didn't see his competition until arriving back at the bar. Jackie Gleason hadn't even broken a sweat.

"No one said nothing about taking a taxi."

Victory.

How sweet it is.

"If you have it and you know you have it, then you have it. If you have it and don't know you have it, you don't have it. If you don't have it but you think you have it, then you have it." - Jackie Gleason
