Raymond Chandler would turn in his grave. 

Chandler had an eye for fakery.

This Raymond Chandler website, maybe a genuine fan, I don't know, maybe a pretender academic, lists the following 'famous quotes' from Chandler's works:

"The minutes went by on toptoe, with their fingers to their lips." ---The Lady in the Lake (Chapter 1)

"I'm an occational drinker, the kind of guy who goes out for a beer and wakes up in Singapore with a full beard." --"The King in Yellow"

Toptoe? Occational? Quotes around the first title, but not the second?

Maybe Chandler wouldn't turn in his grave.

Maybe he wouldn't give a shit.

is it time for a nap yet? i think so
