Ah the Shaw stories. Endless.
He was having dinner with some famous bauty.
He asked her if she would sleep with him for a million dollars. She said "Yes." Then he asked if she would do it for $10.00. She
said no, what do you think I am?" He said,"We've already settled  that. Now
we're just haggling over  the price.

Thanks, David. 
A tidbit from Shaw -- of beauty and brain, in a lighter vein:
A famous motion picture star met GBS on shipboard while traveling to America. She monopolized the conversation for the four days on the water. At the final dinner she stated to Shaw,

"Mr. Shaw, what a wonderful thing it would be for us to get married. Think of the children we could have. Why with my beauty and your brains they would conquer the world."

"Yes, Madam," GBS replied, "But what if they had my beauty and YOUR brains?"
Cheers !!!
