Overheard: 10th February

Clangers overheard by readers of ‘The Steeple Times’

 

The perils of pork

“Bacon has ruined my life”, stated a 30-something year old banker in KX in Chelsea. She continued: “It causes cancer” and then concluded: “Now, I only eat it once a month… Ham, sausage, pork… They’re pure evil… Toxic”. Her two companions remained silent and shuffled the kale in their raw rainbow salads with their forks.

 

Overheard – 10th February 2016
Overheard – 10th February – This week’s gift that gave and gave again prefers men with Black Amex cards

 

Welcoming guests

The same woman moved on to her next topic and told her friends: “My guest room is so nice. It has a housekeeper”. She waspishly followed with: “Has yours?” Her companions continued to shuffle their kale and did not answer.

 

Managing month by month

On personal finances, the gift that kept on giving remarked: “I only have £3,000 in my account each month… I move it around but I’m lucky, I make sure I go out with a man with a Black Amex every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. You should try it”. One companion got a fork full of kale as far as her mouth. Her near success was short-lived as she then promptly returned it to her plate.

    • 20th Century Fox operated a cinema chain in America. The manager of a cinema in Brooklyn, New York received a memorandum from the Head Office informing him that the cinema will go dark after the final performance on Saturday 10 October. The cinema “going dark” was a phrase used in the cinema industry, meaning that the cinema is closing down forever, and will no longer be operational. The Manager wrote a letter back to Head Office requesting permission for the cleaners to use torch lights, enabling them to see where they are cleaning. A fool is born every minute. Bob Crow throwing a spanner in the works, sums it all up. It is not only toffs, that are arrogant.
