Let me slip out of these wet things and into a dry martini

Things that get more interesting with context: Groucho Marx famously said that he'd never belong to any club that would have him as a member. Seems he tried to join a country club, was denied because he was a Jew, and then was re-invited when they learned he wasn't just any Jew, but the famous Groucho Marx. He sent a letter in reply, telling them he'd never belong to a club that would have him as a member.
