Hot air and wind farms…

We were discussing Smutton at chambers tea today.

‘She’s got a certain, er, je ne sais quoi,’ I said.

‘More like je ne sais pas if you ask me,’ said UpTights.

‘Yes, she’s definitely the brassy to UpTights’ classy,’ said HeadofChambers with a smile.

‘Classy with a capital K,’ said OldSmoothie.

‘Well, quite,’ said HeadofChambers.

‘Or maybe the Smutton to UpTights’ Slutton?’ said OldSmoothie chortling at his own joke as usual.

Then BusyBody stepped in, ‘You know, with the amount of hot air you two produce, you could start your very own barrister wind farm.’

‘I like that idea,’ said TheBusker. ‘Imagine if you set up some turbines at say the High Court and also the Houses of Parliament at the same time. They’d probably power London just on their own.’

‘And I hear they can even generate electricity from sewage,’ said UpTights, ‘which might also be of use to OldSmoothie given that most of what he says comes out of his back end.’
