Also thanks to Brian, I read this amusing post about “dressing for success” by the Bellocianly named Penelope Trunk. If that’s the kind of stuff she can’t fit into her upcoming book then it might be one of those rare business publications I might choose to read for pleasure. (The Economist doesn’t count.)

Interesting how Americans say “fit in” where we would say “fitted in”. Shouldn’t the Yanks really say “fut in”?
Hey, thanks for linking to me.
I ended up reading the complete Wikipedia entry for Belloc before I got to the part that explained your joke. So thanks for that educational moment as well.
Do I get a free copy of your book now?—before you “meet your demise under Asian skies, trapped in the hold of a junk.”
Your enthusiasm for discarded pieces of my book make me think that I’ll post another one this week, which is sort of like a free book — or maybe this is already teetering close to the “trapped in the hold of junk” part. Junk vs. genius: Such a fine line.
