It's Neil's Upsideclown up today:

Gordon turned out to be just what we expected, a management oaf who probably thinks that Dewy-decimal is a polygon. He wasn't even wearing a suit, not even a shirt, just this green sweater with a collar on it- some kind of sportswear, so far as I could tell. He can't be more than thirty.

There's something about Neil's writing that I just can't put my finger on which really appeals to me. There's something under that gentle tone which works on me without me knowing -- well, until it ends. Today's 'clown is the same. Recommended: Bibliofile.
