Reminds me of Mr Johnson (the Medallion Man) in Fawlty Towers, who called a pamphlet on the notable sights in Torquay "one of the world's shortest books, like 'The Wit of Margaret Thatcher,'" to Basil's chagrin.
It's a bit poignant that the fellow who played Mr Johnson, Nicky Henson (uncle of Adam Henson of Countryfile as it happens), died just before Christmas after a 20-year battle with cancer. He and John Cleese were good mates in real life.
