    The Oxford English Dictionary attributes the following to Parker: wisecrack, one-night stand.

    It sounds like her humor would surprise people today, no telling how it was reacted to in the 30s and 40s. Interesting in realtion to how common “one-night stand” is used today.

    I have also learned that people that write about Dorothy Parker in the wikipedia like to use the word ‘acerbic’.
