To me, the perfect English gentleman was epitomized by the Merry Monarch, King Charles II, whose epitaph read:

"Here lies our Sovereign Lord the King
Whose word no man relies on.
He never said a foolish thing,
Nor ever did a wise one."


(Written by the Earl of Rochester)

The man sounds like a total snob. I would have just said Benny Hill to watch his lips pucker and be done with it.

Yes he did sound like an insufferable snob. I despise arrogance, it's so unattractive.

Have you been to England lately? It'll quickly shatter your illusion of English gentlemen as they don't really exist, other than on TV. I came across so many degenerate people in the UK that it wasn't even funny. I had a bunch of "lads" try to mess with me on the subway. Scary....total lack of respect and lawlessness eveywhere. I feel for people living on that island.
