Year 4, week 9: it’s the way you tell ’em

It seems OldSmoothie went in for a meeting at Tory HQ on Wednesday and was told that really they were looking for people who are a bit more “with it”. Whilst the whole of chambers have no doubt that this basically meant more “on the ball” and maybe just, you know, in touch with the real world, he’s taken it to mean “trendy”. Then, as if just to prove the point being made he turned to TheCreep for lifestyle advice after hearing him again mentioning TheInbetweeners. Which has meant that yesterday OldSmoothie was strutting around in some black Converse sneaker shoes and loudly answering his brand spanking new iPhone with the words “What’s occurring?” and ending his conversations with the words “At the end of the day, when all’s said and done, and I aint gonna lie to you, I feels it, tidy”. 

Living proof that in the case of both TheCreep and OldSmoothie it’s definitely how you tell them that counts. Or something Evelyn Waugh once said about the one being a Dodo and the other a petrified egg.
