Funniest thing I’ve seen in a while - we all think it but how many of us have the guts to actually say it, ” It’s just a BAGEL! A BAGEL!”.
“Detective Inspector Mill was not, demographically or psychologically, a typical policeman. He was a Classics graduate from Oxford, both the town and the university, the son of two teachers , who had joined the police as an experiment on himself, for reasons which he often speculated about — observing himself as from a distance — but still didn’t understand…Five years out of university, on the graduate fast track up through the ranks, he was very aware of the ways in which his colleagues thought he might be a wanker; not that he was a wanker all the time, but that, through the cocktail of class and education, he had the kind of perspectives and opportunities which meant that he might at any moment say or do something wanky.”
