Before Winston Churchill became Britain’s most famous wartime prime minister, he was the young, sometimes boozy son of an aristocrat.

One night, at a 1912 party at his family estate, Churchill apparently got quite boisterous and irked American socialite Nancy Astor. At her wit’s end, Astor stated, “Winston, if you were my husband, I’d put poison in your coffee.” Churchill replied:

"Nancy, if you were my wife, I’d drink it."
