Good god, what sort of club IS this?

*wanders out of the library and reading room, sticks head round the door of the club next door to see what all the excitement is about, overhears that comment, peers over half moons*

Given the founder, you have to ask?

I should be insulted...

                               ...but I'm not...

                                                      ...rather, I'm strangely comforted...

Herr Doktor,

This is a Gentleman's club.

Otherwise you would be insulted.


Frequently.

By experts.

Small bore.

Care for a glass of port and a cigar? Pass them 'round to him, there's  a good group of Gentlemen...

Which reminds me, what's the collective noun for a group of Gentlemen?

Well gentlemen, I am afraid I must retire and leave you to discuss the finer points of life without me.

Now where is that woman with my laundry?  I wonder if she can deliver it to my quarters tonight...  I wonder if she will wear those bloomers...

*shakes the distracting, albeit happy, thoughts from his head*

I bid thee all a good evening.

A Wardrobe of Gentlemen?

A Refinement of Gentlemen?

A Style of Gentlemen?

A Politeness of Gentlemen?

A Smoking of Gentlemen? (Covers dresscode and cigars)


Personally, I like the good Doktör's suggestion of " A Decorum of Gentlemen".

Please advise the Captain that his corsets are of inferior quality and need to be resprung - in future may I suggest he patronise my friend Mrs Dowding's establishment ?

Incidentally, I would have returned these yesterday evening but I found the club was shut for repairs and your idiot doorman refused me entry.

slides a rather nasty looking knife into his gladstone bag. Sits, signals for port. Opens the latest Necronomonist and announces:

There, I've fixed the doorman. That'll keep his mind on his work and off bloomer clad doxies.

walks into the room picks up a cigar a stiff whiskey, turns round to be face to face with a woman, jumps with surprise and drops my drink over Helios who continues to snore and the cigar falls onto a copy of the cogserver which ignites briefly but is stamped out with a swift jab of my foot.....sits down to regain composure and possibly seek medical aid
