A sports day for toffs
chap olympiad, three trousered limbo
Three Trousered Limbo

I say, are you up for an absolutely spiffing time? Well, old chap, if you don't mind putting on a bit of a sweat, then why not enter The Chap Olympiad on the 13th July? It is Britain's most eccentric sporting event, and you are sure to have a cracking time. It is a toff competition, mind you. They are planning a pipeathalon, umbrella jousting, iron board surfing, tug of moustache, and for the ladies, a thrilling bounder hunt; catch the cad, and you get to whack him with your handbag.

Just because we are running around bit does not excuse formal attire, however. I want to see ties, sensible shoes, and don't forget your bowler hat for a smashing game of beach volleybowler.

Tickets are only 20, so come and take part in 'a celebration of athletic ineptitude and immaculate trouser creases'. Set your pocket watch to twelve o'clock, and I hope to see you there, what, what.
