Now With 35% More Paprika

From Cole Porter, a biography by William McBrien, about Elsie de Wolfe, who is acknowledged as having basically invented the profession of interior decorating:
"She had...something else that's particularly American--an appreciation of vulgarity. Vulgarity is a very important ingredient in life...a little bad taste is like a nice splash of paprika."

If a little bad taste is like a splash of paprika, then I'm a spice rack.
