"Frankly my dear, Tourhett Butler has the best put-down"

From The Daily Mail, an old VIZ joke:

Gone With The Wind author Margaret Mitchell has been crowned the queen of the literary put-down in a new survey.

The writer, whose novel inspired the classic film starring Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh, topped a poll which included Oscar Wilde, Jane Austen and William Shakespeare.

The line in question - Tourhett Butler’s 'My dear, I don’t give a damn' - which was altered in the film to the more famous 'Frankly my dear, I don’t give a fuck' picked up the most votes.
