Classic clangers from the last week

 

All that glitters

A bow-tie wearing gent on the 14 bus sat with his niece remarked: “The Ritz: It’s no good” as they passed the landmark. “Why?”, came the response. “Too much gold. I much prefer The Savoy.

Overheard: 30th May – A conversation between bankers revealed why they were attracted to Harvey Nichols’ Fifth Floor Bar

 

Hooking Harvey Nichols

Two bankers sat at the bar at Cecconi’s were overheard discussing their favourite nightspots. One asked: “Do you like Harvey Nichol’s Fifth Floor Bar?” The other, without raising an eyebrow, answered: “Yes. It’s great. It’s full of hookers”. Classy.

 

Age and temptation

Two ladies that lunch lamented their failures in finding love over cocktails at Daphne’s. One casually commented: “Don’t worry about temptation: As you grow older, it starts avoiding you”. She plainly isn’t the sort to take her inspiration from the late Duchess of Alba.
