      It's got most all of the same characters. First to Gussie's Stiff upper lip is Stinker who has boxed heavyweight for Oxford. Her butler having come Jeeves. book with an ailment of some sort, my Aunt Dahlia, my good and deserving aunt, had borrowed him for a house party she was throwing at Brinkley Court, her Worcestershire residence, and he had been away for more than a week. Well, when I tell you that after sailing through a couple of sausages like a tiger of the jungle tucking into its luncheon coolie I was now, as indicated, about to tackle the toast and marmalade, I fancy I need say no more.

      Jeeves, of course, Stiff upper lip a gentleman's gentleman, not a butler, but if the call comes, he can buttle with the best of them. Good old Jeeves". But Bertie must forfeit that hat. But Sidcup or no Sidcup, to me he will always be Spode. Many times, he asks Jeeves for help finding the correct word or quotation to use, which also leads to the comic juxtaposition of Bertie's use of slang with Jeeves's formal speech. Jeeves tells Bertie that he needs to help Gussie and Madeline get together again if he wants to avoid Madeline getting engaged to him.

      The cook has offered Stiff upper lip secretly provide Gussie steak-and-kidney pie. Sir Watkyn offers Harold Pinker the vicarage, but changes his Stiff upper lip when he finds out that Stinker punched Spode. Opinion about the main character: I love Bertie Wooster, he's well-meaning, sweet and amiable. I felt like a child of tender years deprived of its Nannie. It's in the blood. I was prepared to concede that it would have been more suitable for rural wear, but against this had to be set the fact that it unquestionably lent a diablerie to my appearance, and mine is an appearance that needs all the diablerie it can get.
