Overheard: 24th March

Classic clangers from the last week

 

Minty Mugabe

At La Brasserie in South Kensington, a witty youngster dining with his grandmother was heard to announce: “I’m going to tell you something funny: “Did you know that ‘Robert Mugabe’ backwards is what a Yorkshireman says when he finds a shop selling extra strong mints”. Try it.

 

24th March heard Vladimir Putin and Alina Kabaeva
Vladimir Putin and Alina Kabaeva

 

A paralysed president

“Have you seen the president [Putin] crushed with paralysis and captured by the generals?” [He] just arrived from Switzerland where he was delivering babies, as you know” commented Dmitry Peskov, Vladimir Putin’s indefatigable spokesman in response to rumours about Putin having “gone missing” for the birth of a “love child” with Alina Kabaeva, 31, a retired Olympic gymnast who served in the Russian parliament and now works for a media company. If he thought that the way to scotch rumours, he must have been on acid.

 

Miami Vice in bad disguise

“You look like Miami Vice in bad disguise” commented an Essex businessman to his dining companion in a Mayfair restaurant before being tapped on the shoulder by a plain clothed police officer. He was taken away in cuffs.

 

Converting Clarkson

Spotted by reader James Hilton: Jeremy Clarkson on convertible cars: “The only person who looked good in a four-seated convertible was Adolf Hitler”.
