For the benefit of Mr Kite
For example, it came as something of a shock to her at a committee meeting last week to realise that there are persons in their thirties for whom Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is such ancient history that it is entirely outwith their frame of cultural reference.
Had it not been for the presence of several committee members in their forties and above, Lady Bracknell's witticism on the lyric which forms the title of this blog entry would have fallen very flat indeed.
The delightful young gentleman for whose benefit the witticism was coined claimed that his musical education started with Abba.
If Lady Bracknell is to continue to chair meetings in her accustomed style of sparkling bon mots, she fears she may be forced to familiarise herself with the hip beat combos du jour. A prospect which, if she is honest, does not fill her heart with unalloyed joy.
