Sir Benjamin Slade excels himself with an amusing Christmas card celebrating himself (maybe) finally finding an other half
Sir Benjamin Slade, Bt. can always be relied upon to amuse.
Whether he’s on ITV1’s This Morning describing how he’s looking for a “castle trained breeder” (to provide him with an heir) or filming videos of his Labradors driving his Bentley, this aristocrat is always on the ball and delightful company.
Our Christmas card of the year just simply had to be Sir Benjamin’s. It features a picture of the great man on the ‘Great Bed’ at his home, Maunsel House – a residence that has a bar full of amongst other things machine guns – and it is captioned: “Engaged at last?”
Sat upright alongside Sir Ben – in his pyjamas holding a copy of Tatler and accompanied by some weaponry, a chicken and a Jack Russell – is a mannequin. Inside alongside season’s greetings, the lady is announced. Her name? “Baroness Manuela Melita Makowsky Von Lagershausen zu Nehaus.” Shortened, in brackets, she’s simply “Ivana.”
Brilliant. We salute you Sir Ben.
Happy Christmas to all our readers. May you have a wonderful day.
