There is a nice scene in one of Wodehouse's books which I am reminded of, but I can't find a reference to it on the web. Bertie Wooster is getting ready for a date and he is feeling rather anxious and flustered and he has a conversation with his butler, Jeeves.

BERTIE: Is there any spinach stuck between my teeth?

JEEVES: Have you eaten spinach today?

BERTIE: No, I just thought it appears like crop circles.

I hear Jeeves’s voice as the maĆ®tre de in the original TV series of Hitchhiker. Finding the proper quote would be a good excuse to read all of Wodehouse’s books, but not today – I have important things to do.
