* recovers enough to send Errol, trusted valet, to challenge the nefarious wastrel and varlet Lord "Mad" William Bonney to a duel to avenge her most egregiously slighted honor *

* faints dead away in outraged, yet graceful, ladylike horror again *

Good heavens, Earl Bonney! I see that your golfing companion is lying prone on the lawn; exhausted, no doubt, by her exertions on the golf course. It must have been a tiring session -- did you require more strokes than usual?

Oh I say,

Speaking of the Olympics chaps, I hear they have revived Greco-Roman wrestling. Frightfully skilful and all that, although some of those manoeuvres look extremely unflattering!

Unflattering indeed old boy! Although one should endeavour never to pass up the opportunity for some healthy exercise in the fresh air of the countryside - does wonders for the constitution, you know.

Indeed. If you have an interest in Greco-Roman wrestling, you should come over one afternoon and see my scullery maid. You only have to ask and she'll contort herself into some unflattering - but interesting - positions.

Good heavens Jeeves! Eject this ragamuffin immediately! Even the most cursory glance at his snotty nose and dirty vest confirms that this is the product of breeding among the lower classes. This repellent young whippersnapper shouldn't be here when I'm about to tell the story of how the pole vaulting went last evening.

Ah yes Lord Roy, the pole vaulting; there were so many memorable moments. But which sticks in my mind the most?

Was it when the young lady tightly grabbed the pole and went flat out?

Or was it the moment when I feared that the pole might snap under the strain?

A most memorable evening, and well worth the £200.

Marvellous entertainment indeed...I've only just got my breath back after being Sedan chaired over to Horse Guards for the preliminary rounds of the ladies beach volley ball and thence to Greenwich for the Pole Dancing marathon...oh my word the medals go in strange places in the latter event.

Oh dear oh dear what an absolute disgrace...the Chinese team have been accused of cheating in the ladies triathlon...they've been hiding their dumplings.

How disgraceful. They're an utter shower.

On a happier note, I hear that Team GB have won their first gold medal. It was won by the coxless ladies. I must be getting a smidgeon out of touch, I didn't realise there was any other kind.

My good sir, obviously you have never taken tiffin in one of the more infamous bars in Bangkok. One recommends this for your worldly education, and post haste!

Bangkok? My word Sir Roland...is there such a location...one had thought this referred to a form of accident which could befall one whilst showing the Scullery Maid how to play croquet.

Indeed, Sir Bart. There are many types of sports injuries that can be inflicted upon one's person. Have you ever suffered a shuttlecock injury? It tends to make one's eyes water.

Indeed Lord Spot, it does make ones eyes water...I must teach the Scullery Maid that sport as well, she'll simply love it as the shuttlecock goes up and down, up and down ad infinitum. It's only a matter of deciding whether we play outdoors or indoors or even al fresco.
