An Ode to Wode

Have been reading old favorite PG Wodehouse lately. I still find them hilarious and completely relaxing. I'd say Wodehouse possibly is an inspiration to a show like Cheers or Frasier- a nice, benign kind of atmosphere, no real concerns for the hero, who has money or a regular job, is lazy but has good taste and manners. He gets into sticky situations and you can routinely expect genuinely funny moments where you hold your sides, doubling up with laughter. I know, I know- all too predictable, but I'd like some predictable humor in today's warped world, where you have to enroll into a laughter club to laugh.
I'd prefer an Ode to Wode any day.
