From London comes the story of the tycoon who was reading a prepared speech to a meeting of the nation’s big shots:
“The average businessman is tired,” he thundered, pausing now and again to readjust his glasses. “He worked twenty hours a day on work. He is physically and mentally exhausted. But what a lead-pipe cinch he has had compared to the defenseless secretaries who have had to type all this interminable hogwash.” The delighted audience let out a roar of laughter.
