oh, and another method is to simply launch into a calm, measured critique of their own dress sense. ‘Westphalians were not wearing Jodphurs at this stage of the conflict of course’ ‘well no, but sane human beings aren’t wearing purple cord trousers that are too short, trainers they found in a skip and an anorak their mum bought them reduced at Poundland, are they? and the beard and glasses combo is also something of a sartorial failure. Perhaps before criticising how my fellows are dressed you should invest in a mirror?’ *edit* as you may guess that same module at school was not compulsory
That’s genius. I’m having that 🙂
Obvious contrarian and passive aggressive old prat, who is taken far too seriously by some and not seriously enough by others.
