When & how did you become an expert on ladies handbags?

Ever since that bloody, sodding, crapulate, cheating, gang of get-rich-quick merchants, aka, 'Michael Kors (sick)Bags' started bombarding me with spam at the rate of 2, 3 or even 4 a day! Having finally found an e-mail address for their HQ in America, I am now re-bombarding them back to various departments in the organisation. Don't suppose it will do any good but it makes me feel better!

Actually, John, the only thing I know for sure about handbags is that they defy the laws of physics in that ladies manage to put ten times more stuff in them than the space allows!

I'm always struck by what ugly rubbish most women's handbags are compared to the handsome hand/shoulder bags carried by Italian men, or at least by smoothie-chops Italian businessmen, in their northern cities.

It also explains why those chaps' suits look good - they don't have every pocket stuffed with wallet, kleenex, mobile phone, diary, reading glasses, car keys, house keys, pen, Swiss army knife, etc etc.

Never took you for a bit of a dandy, DM!

That's a classic photo David. Just goes to show how intelligent she is.

There is a lovely irony in the term "Criminal Lawyer".

The Bard was obviously no fan of the legal profession.

"The world is still deceived with ornament. In law, what plea so tainted and corrupt. But, being seasoned with a gracious voice, obscures the show of evil."

Merchant of Venice III.ii.74

Someone said, "There is no problem that cannot be solved by hanging a hundred lawyers". Might have been Disraeli.

Hello, Whitelaw, I couldn't find a source for your quote but it's a corker!

AussieD, now that's an excellent quote - can't think why I didn't remember it given that I once played the part of Launcelot Gobbo in that play. I expect I was too busy sweating in the wings desperately trying to remember my lines!
