Things Dandies Like, Part 3

The Latest Bon Mot

In this case, latest means circa 1889. Regardless, this clever piece of writing (and reading by the legendary Hugh Laurie) is a piece of dandy literature any chap worth his salt should look into. Jerome K. Jerome's Three Men in a Boat. This is but a sample of the wit and humour the book is chock full of, and of course I mean that in the sense of Victorian humour. 
It was made into a film in 1975, starring Tim Curry, Michael Palin and Stephen Moore. It is superb, in this dandy's humble opinion, and certainly worth watching.

Stay tuned, dandies and quaintrelles, for the SPWF Dandy Roundup Edition!

Also, as always I am accepting any dandy you wish to send my way.
Especially female dandies. No one's volunteered any and I've certainly been searching.
That is all. Until next time.
Keep it Dapper.
