D'you know...

... I think I should avoid young Bismarck.  Once might have been an accident, twice – well, you know the appropriately Wildean aphorism.  Be it in a Chelsea flat or whilst up at the House, the boy does seem to have a certain unfortunate habit as a host….

Nice House

...and you guys have such a cute phrase for it: death by misadventure.

(I have recently learned that the standards for speaking ill of the dead have become considerably stricter than they were in my young days, when people often excused themselves from the funeral service to step outside and indulge in gigglefits much as folk today step out to smoke a cigarette; but I can't breathe through my nose for very long at my age, so when can I unclamp my hands from around my mouth and howl with laughter?)

Death by Miss Adventure.

Or, 'When Drag Queens Attack'. Miss Adventure would make a wonderful name for a drag queen.

Now, *that* was a definite cheer-up this morning. I'm not sure which I found more hilarious, the buckets of sex toys or the mirrors or, indeed, the jockstraps cum boots.

No! Best ever: "Count von Bismarck, 43, [...] told the inquest that he had not seen any homosexual activity taking place."

Am very glad to have finished my morning tea already, otherwise the keyboard would've been covered in it.

"Count von Bismarck, 43, [...] told the inquest that he had not seen any homosexual activity taking place."

I assume this was because he was blindfolded and handcuffed to a bed facing the opposite direction.

I expect you're right.

Max really oughtn't host these parties, though. Given the lashings of drugs involved in the deaths that occur every other decade or so (not perhaps a huge death rate, but hardly a statistic one wishes to have attached to one's social endeavours: 'going to Max's party?' 'Um, I dunno, isn't about time for another death?'), one wonders what he could have seen, if anything. Distasteful, really.

Re: I expect you're right.

Can we put this down as "some people never learn"? But I haqdn't considered the drugs - no doubt pink elephants do get in the way.

Indeed.

Ah, the unlimited horizons of human folly.

Re: I expect you're right.

Why wasn't there a pink elephant in the way when whatisface went to fall off the roof? Where are those blighters when you need them?

Have you ever tried to train a pink elephant?

Dodgy, very dodgy undertaking indeed.

Re: Have you ever tried to train a pink elephant?

Ah, a man with expertise in that area, it appears. ;)

No names...

... No pack-drill.

Re: No names...

Sorry, I'm not following. Could you clarify, please?
wemyss From: wemyss Date: October 6th, 2006 09:33 pm (UTC) (Link)

Sorry.

Just another way of refusing to answer a question, similar to 'ask me no questions and I'll tell you no porkies'.
aillil From: aillil Date: October 7th, 2006 06:27 am (UTC) (Link)

I see.

Thank you. :)

You got it in one, I believe. :D

Is sex toys in buckets the Chelsea equivalent of coal in the bath?

But, er, the rubber tarpaulin ... ?
wemyss From: wemyss Date: October 6th, 2006 02:40 pm (UTC) (Link)

It' s best not to know, dearie.

Just think of it as something that makes things easier on the char (or house-elf) and leave it at that.

... I see NOTHING!

I can only imagine the look the coroner must have given him.

Re: ... I see NOTHING!

Oh, I smell a Kodak moment there! *topples off chair*
