Mrs. Peperium

"I wear them both to great applause."

Best line.


I want one of these.

Old Dominion Tory

Irish Elk, I believe that particular garment that you profess to desire would be worn with hideously rumpled "cargo shorts" that come below the knee, gamey "flip-flops" (or equally gamey "crocs"), a t-shirt displaying some trendy saying, and a ball cap, worn backwards. The pipe, of course, should be replaced by a bong or a can or bottle of some appalling beverage (outrageously claimed to be beer) of the type nigh continuously advertised during televised sporting events. Also, the model here is far too well-groomed; a three- or four-day growth of beard and head of hair about six weeks past the time when attention from a barber was essential would be much closer to type.


ODT, all this may be true, but the rewards are great. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/31FKWAWE40L._AA280_.jpg

I love Catholic priests. Why didn't someone give him a smoking jacket - not that he needed it :



As I recall, Sir Watkyn Bassett dined in a smoking jacket with soup stains all down the front, thus earning an entry in Gussie Fink-Nottle's little book of personal flaws with which he planned to nerve himself to make his Wedding Breakfast speech.

Ah! One of my favorite passages in one of my favorite Wodehouses. Yes, I have always taken that detail as proof positive of Sir W's innate, inborn insufficiency for the post in life he had recently assumed.

I'm with Bertie. He must have stuck to the fines like glue in order to afford that shack at Totley.
