More Plum Blogging

In my humble opinion, there is no such thing as an "almost unhealthy interest in P.G. Wodehouse" and, therefore, any sentence containing this expression should be treated with lively suspicion. Actually, all of the activity in the article flagged by Tim looked to me rayther like fun. From now on, you can call me "Bingo".

And in the end, we Wodehouse sharks certainly aren't any worse than the Baker Street Irregulars.

UPDATE: Utron makes the point in a comment that in the forward to his copy of Code of the Woosters published some years back, Alexander Cockburn mentioned a club in Hungary that attempted to recreate the atmosphere of the Drones Club. I have the same edition and had thought of mentioning this. Obviously, there is nothing new about Wodehouse-mania. But for some reason, the way Cockburn described the Hungarian group made them seem rather pathetic to me. Perhaps I am now just getting goofier in my old age.....
