The Babe: an Apology

Following advice from our legal representatives, Dewey Cheetham and Howe, we would like to issue the following statement:

It has been brought to our attention by a representative of the Babe that a posting on Disgruntled Commuter may have inadvertantly given the impression that she was prone to imagining spiders.

We now accept that the spider mentioned by the babe was not in fact an imaginary spider but was in fact an actual large hairy spider hovering a few centimetres above Disgruntled Commuter’s head. We further acknowledge that the babe was indeed acting in our best interests in pointing out said spider although the likelihood was that had we seen the spider we would have screamed like a girl and that, notwithstanding the presence of any arthopods imaginary or otherwise, babymother still had to turn right across approximately 17 lanes of London traffic and having her navigator screaming like a girl would not have helped in this endeavour.

We would like to take the opportunity to apologise to the babe for this misrepresentation of her remarks, and to further apologise for any distress or inconvenience that this may have caused. We trust that the matter is now closed.

  1. Teehee! Dewey, Cheetham & Howe. That’s marvellous.

  2. tis good, isn’t it? The US branch of Sue, Grabbitt and Runne, presumably

  3. Soft words good but hardcash better. ‘Geddit Takit and Spendit’ Newly appointed off shore (Loch Tay) advisers to THE Babe

  4. I’m pretty sure Scottish law doesn’t apply in this matter, Huttonian …

  5. Sorry Hyperion. Family joke. Won’t happen again

  6. What happened to my comment? Here it is again: the babe is consulting her lawyers, as used by Gina Ford, and will respond in due course. I also pointed out that I drive like a girl, you navigate like a girl, and at the end of the day, we are girls.

  7. Too true, and there’s no getting away from it. I meant ‘like a girl’ in the empowering non-pejorative sense, of course …

    20six seems to be eating comments these days, btw. You have to double check they actually appear…
