Overheard: 26th January

Classic clangers from the last week



Foresting cash

At a reception at the World Economic Forum in Davos, reader William Pickford chatted with a wealthy Swiss industrialist. Pickford asked: “How do you feel about Swiss banks charging clients to hold cash?” The banker raised his eyebrows and answered: “The solution is simple. Bury it in the forest”.



Rich curves

Two ladies that lunch were overheard at Scott’s in Mount Street in conversation. The first remarked: “Kim Kardashian makes us girls feel good and happy about being curvy by posing as she did”. The second looked astounded and answered: “No she doesn’t. She just continues to make herself extremely rich”.


Krug chatter
If you can afford a McLaren 12C, you can afford to go straight to the Krug


Saving the lobster way

Founder of The Native Society Oliver Estreich was at Nello in New York. He overheard an art dealer lunching with a rich client. The dealer’s best remark was to suggest: “You can save money by spending it. Let’s start with the $75 lobster ravioli”.


Wining youths

At the KX Gym in Chelsea, a 20-year old McLaren 12C driving youngster from Monaco chatted with his equally wealthy Loro Piana clad friends. As he looked through the wine list he remarked: “I’m in such a dilemma. Should we have the Pinot Noir or the Hermitage La Chapelle?”A female member of the group quickly offered a solution: “Danny, you know I only drink Krug”. A bottle was promptly opened.
