Gatecrashers turn up at a memorial service for Michael Winner
The 2005 film Wedding Crashers starring Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn and Christopher Walken made that breed of crasher famous but an image from today’s Mail Online illustrates another of their number: the memorial crasher.
The “merry gang” of canapé lovers we’ve written of previously are regularly spotted at openings (and closings), in peoples’ homes and anywhere else where drinks are free. Like a tribe, they turn up en masse and they reek havoc wherever they go.
Whatever the event, somehow these characters somehow skulk in. One of the best known, a bow tie wearing character named David Pun who features at 13th position on our roll call of social butterflies, has attracted 49 comments about his activities. Most of them are far from complimentary.
The Mail’s image, however, illustrates that for some crashers there are indeed no boundaries. If you look in the background of an image of two of Winner’s friends, Sir Michael Caine and Lord Archer, at the service in The Mall, you’ll see a certain well known crasher. The only question that comes to mind is: “Have these people got no shame?”
