the Duke of Fife has Impressive Eyebrows

26 August, 2010

Observations from The First Clerihews, a collection of illustrations by G.K. Chesterton and nonsensical rhymes by E.Clerihew Bentley:
the Duke of Fife has impressive eyebrows, Napoleon is short (as always), and Sir William Vernon Harcourt, whose great-grandmother is called Scroop and whose great-grandmother’s name was Wriothesley, looks scornfully at the cutlery-flinging Duke.  How Vulgar!
