[in the silence of the club room, the waiter drops a spoon. Slowly the elderly Colonel stands up, and then... ]
Colonel: Pah! The eternal din in this club is an outrage! I ask you, wot?
Algy Longworth: You're perfectly right, Colonel. We ought to complain. Do you know that's the third spoon I've heard drop this month?

Now, let's see: "To the Editor, Personal Column, The Times, London. Demobilized officer, finding peace unbearably tedious..."
Algy Longworth: Dear old boy, you're not serious!
