London’s Masterpiece

Worthy of note

In just five short years, Masterpiece, the London-based exposition of art, antiques, and design, has earned a firm reputation among both serious collectors and important curators acquiring on behalf of such institutions as the Rijkesmuseum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Victoria & Albert Museum, and the Getty. Held over eight days between 25 June and 1 July in a tent — a marvel of architecture and engineering that feels nothing like a temporary structure — on the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, the sixth edition will build on last year’s half billion pounds in art sales by welcoming 150 galleries representing a diverse array of practitioners and mediums extending some 4,000 years into the past.

Pilates and Pippa’s Posterior

We all experience moments in life when the mirror speaks to us. “Get thee to an exercise regime!” But which one? Well, you might get some inspiration from this paragraph

A leading health club group is reporting a massive surge in Pilates classes enquiries following news that Pippa Middleton credits the invigorating exercise for her breathtaking bum.

To be honest, I have never felt that bums, even well shaped bums are breathtaking. So I was surprised at this, when I read further

Miss Middleton’s peachy posterior has become a worldwide sensation since Prince William and her sister Kate’s wedding on 29 April. Thousands of column inches have been dedicated to it, while 225,000 Facebook users have joined the ‘Pippa Middleton Ass Appreciation Society’.

How could I have missed this? I needed more data. So i did a Google image search for “Pippa Middleton’s bum” and saw this

It seems that Prince Harry knows more about this than I do!

Great Lawyering!

One experiences odd things in court. Like this exchange

ATTORNEY: Are you sexually active?
WITNESS: No, I just lie there.

Or how about this one

ATTORNEY: What was the first thing your husband said to you that morning?
WITNESS: He said, ‘Where am I, Cathy?’
ATTORNEY: And why did that upset you?
WITNESS: My name is Susan!
