Moby dicks

You can't take Denton Wilde Sapte's lawyers anywhere. Only a couple of week ago a group of the firm's scamps hired a 30-foot yacht to take part in the Manches Cup, the annual boating shindig for legal seamen.

Little did they know, though, that the person they rented the boat off is actually the legal director in the financial services division of a well-known car manufacturing group. Tulkinghorn is sure that had they been aware of this, the lawyers would not have, a) collided with another boat, b) lost the keys so the yacht could only be started with a screwdriver, or c) completely blocked the onboard toilet.

Like a bunch of scaredycats, the chumps failed to let on to the relevant people what they had done. Isn't it ironic, then, that the name of the yacht is Mostly Harmless.
