    A woman at a dinner party said to Sir Winston Churchill accusingly, "Winston, you're drunk!" He replied, "Madam, you're ugly, but tomorrow I'll be sober."

    How would one say this in Italian?

    My attempt:
    "Signora, sei brutto, ma domani saro' sobrio."

    Grazie :)

    Durante una cena una donna rivolgendosi a Sir Winston Churchill lo addito' in modo accusatorio : "Winston sei ubriaco".
    Lui gli replico': " Signora siete brutta, ma domani saro' sobrio"

    Not so literal: "E lei è brutta, signora, ma domani a me sarà passata".
