Wodehouse vocabulary

You know what, like there are dictionaries for Medieval English, Modern English, and what not, I think there should be a dictionary of amusing words and phrases used by Wodehouse in his writings (for all I know somebody might already have compiled such a dictionary!)

Of course, in most Wodehouse novels, the plot is hilarious as well, but then sometimes I think even if the plot were not hilarious, I'd still be rolling on the floor laughing if I had a Wodehouse in my hands! His language is absolutely amusing, extremely entertaining. I am so overcome by by emotion (the light, funny, happy kind) now, thinking of "Right Ho, Jeeves", which I was reading last night, that I really cannot go on with this post now...
