Chesterton series

I have been watching a TV series on Chesterton (originally shown on EWTN). It is very interesting. I have learned a lot about Chesterton because of that movie.
He was a very humorous person (That wasn't my main discovery for even if you have only read a few paragraphs of him it is impossible not to make that discovery.) He told many jokes about his large size. For example he remarked that he was the politest man in England, for indeed he could stand up and offer his seat to three ladies instead of one.

Among his odd attire was a revolver which he never used except when someone would remark that life was not worth living. He would then pull out the revolver and offer to shoot the person.

There are to many highlights to cover right now. But if you would like to here them said better than I can you will just have to watch the series, G.K. Chesterton the apostle of Common sense.
