Sorry, Lady Bracknell, to paraphrase you so badly, and sorry also to Oscar (such a darling boy!) for nicking your wit! However, like all of you - you cynical rascals! - I have enjoyed a good laugh at M. Strauss-Kahn's recent antics with sundry ladies which resulted in the loss of his job as boss of the IMF - no, no, not the 'International Mother F*****s', I mean the International Monetary Fund - do be serious! Happily everything was stitched up settled very quickly in that august and respectable institution when that distinguished, silver-haired, French lady was shooed in to the top job. But now, alors! merde! she, too, is under investigation by a French court for being, how can I put this delicately?, over-generous to some French 'get-rich-quick' merchant involved in a gazillion euro take-over when she was Minister of Finance under the French dwarf - er, when I say 'under' that is a figure of speech and not to be taken literally - and do stop sniggering at the back!
What can one say except . . . vive la France!
