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.

Dr. Q.
Such are the feeble bases on which many a public character rests.

Today, I am two, separate Gorillas.

One should always be judged by the calibre of ones peers.

Small bore.

Yes, good job we're all such thoroughly nice chaps.

Dr. Q.

(Ha. Ha. The spellchecker just came up with the suggestion 'showgirl.' Which in other circumstances would be a positively splendid recommendation.)

(In fact..............)

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?

Flock? Gaggle? Herd? Troop?

How about Club?

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.

Have to have it ratified by the Gentlemen's Funkadelic sub-commitee first.

"Who would have guessed that behind the formidable brow of his, which appeared to be made of some kind of rook, there lay so strange a mixture of memories and thoughts?"

I do enjoy popping in here it gives me my daily dose of wit.  ;)
G is for gorgeous
E is for exciting
O is for odd (in the best possible way!)
R is for remarkable
G is for gentle
I is for intelligent
A is for awesome

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".

*enters mostly obscured by mountain of snowy white laundry*

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 ?

*hands out leaflet*

I'm in Darkshines sewing swap!

Also inform Mr Creation that if he wishes me to remove stains of that nature I will require to be paid extra

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.
Steampunk is in the eye of the beholder, in the hands of the tinkerer and in the needle of the costumer.

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
