I hope the poor dear wasn't too shocked by this.
DM alert (sorry, couldn't find it elsewhere) blush

I'm sure his vast wealth will help him to cope.

Good grief. Poor man/woman, whoever they were.

How sad for the poor person that died.

I like the comment underneath.

"Goodness, I have all their catalogues."

Alan Bennett couldn't have written a finer line.

I loved 'it was a Timberland boot, of recent vintage'. Am only surprised he didn't say 'it was so last season'.

Still, poor whoever they were. sad

It takes an expert to be able to comment on the state of the clothes. Fashion Forensics.

Sad that someone died yet no one had noticed before.

grin at 'Goodness, I have all their catalogues'

"I was like Harrison Ford"

Were they Sassy Boots? And was it a Flippy Little Coat?

This is AWFUL. My dog has the same name as Johnnie's dog <shoots self>

Of course, naming his old school is essential to the gravity of the piece.

Jeez. Harrison Ford? I think not.

It's almost worth reading the Daily Fail online articles for the sheer comedy of their comments. You wouldn't actually believe people like that existed until you saw what they come up with...

Neither of them look traumatised!! they´re not doing the obligatory DM

And they´re not doing the obligatory DM sad faces eithergrin-or should that be sad?

diddl Germany Tue 19-Feb-13 15:09:34

Harrison Ford??!!

Is that a euphemism or does he perhaps mean a character that HF portrays?

KnightBusRider Tue 19-Feb-13 19:36:07

It is obviously sad that someone has died and not been missed/found until now but...

"I stood by the scrub calling for Sproutie"

"I was like Harrison Ford"

<feeling very guilty to be laughing about this snort>

This...

‘I was rather late for a meeting at Boden but I was able to excuse myself by saying, “I’m terribly sorry I’m late, but my dog found a dead body near Wormwood Scrubs.” I have to say I regard it as one of my best lines.

..is horrible though. Smug twat, so glad he got a good line.

Most of the OE I've met have been quite flip. I think it's a cover- underneath the charming (quite thick in the case of OE) veneer they're little hurt boys -probably from being sent away at 7.

I think it would be quite shocking for anyone to find human remains - regardless of how glib they try to appear afterwards.

I am shocked that none of those colours 'popped' especially against such a wintery drab backdrop.

Yellowtip Sat 23-Feb-13 23:00:12

What a repellent response: 'my best line' . Such a loser. duchesse I don't believe that all OEs are 'flip', let alone flip to cover their hurt. Face it, some are just twats.

MissBeehiving my dog has a better name (sorry) but looks exactly like Sproutie Boden <not prepared to shoot self>.
