Dermot's StoryDermot McCann forgot his lines in a Sunday school play. Luckily his is Father was in the front row especially to prompt him. He gestured and formed the words silently with her lips, but it did not help. Dermot's memory was completely blank. Finally, he leaned forward and whispered the cue, 'I am the light of the world.' Dermot beamed and with great feeling and a loud clear voice announced, 'My Father is the light of the world.'

English GentlemenIn 1912, Country Life wrote that 'few words come to convey so beautiful a meaning as that of "Gentleman".' English gentleman never shows-off. Any blatant self-promotion would immediately disqualify one from being a gentleman. In this respect becoming a gentleman is rather like the reverse of Groucho Marx quote: 'I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member'. However, down the years English gentlemen have exhibited surprising and amusing behaviour. I was astonished to read that Edwardian gentlemen circa 1905 had a penchant for tattoos, I was amused to discover that a partridge was their favorite motif. Apparently, these gentlemen had a shot of cocaine to ease the pain of the tattooist's needle. Moving forward two decades, I spotted this advice on crocodile shooting etiquette, 'No compunction need be felt in shooting crocodiles, for where so common it is a constant worry to the natives'. As Algeron pointed out to me, no gentlemen would ever read a books on etiquette, they just absorbed how to behave by osmosis from the gentry who came to their stately homes.
Talking of hunting, Oscar Wilde summed up country gentleman galloping after a fox as:- "The unspeakable in full pursuit of the uneatable".What caught my in Mark Hedges recent article published in the times was this: 'No gentlemen would ever wear pink socks'. An idea that I beseech the women in my life to extend to shirts and even cardigans. Mark Hedges finishes with this wonderful anecdote, which distils the essence of an English gentleman. A member of a club in London posted a notice on the board demanding that the nobleman who stole his umbrella at once return it. When a fellow member asked how he knew that the culprit was a noblemen he replied: "Sir, the rules of this club state that it is for noblemen and gentlemen. And no gentleman would have taken my umbrella." See more jokes for Father's Day
