“Hi – just thought I’d send some snaps of a recent ‘chaps’ night out,” writes Raymond Brown. “It started off at a shooting centre, where we took part in a typical chap pastime; the shooting lodge was a perfect ‘chap’ environment. The night ended up in a club in Oxford where the ‘normal’ punters were very taken with the arrival of ‘the chaps’, to the point that my cap was pinched…bounder!”
Yes, er, ‘Hi’ to you too. There seems to be some confusion here. The fellow who pinched your cap was entirely in the right, and any of us Chaps would have done the same. Can’t have you giving us a bad name, old stick.
