In the 1920s, a group of literary types met regularly at the Algonquin Hotel. Attendees included Dorothy Parker, Alexander Woollcott, Harold Ross (of The New Yorker), George S. Kaufman, Robert Benchley and quite a few others.

They often played word games, one of which was that someone would give a word to the group and another would have to use the word in a sentence.

Dorothy Parker was given the word "horticulture," to which she replied,

"You can lead a wh0re to culture, but you can't make her think."
