It’s the vay ve tell ’em…

Tulkinghorn has invariably found most press releases to be duller than a week spent with his great aunt Nora without his trusty hip flask.

But one of Tulkinghorn’s eagle-eyed scribes stumbled upon the releases from Austrian firm Schönherr, which have become an unlikely source of regular amusement. The firm has decided to break the rather boring mould and throw a few jokes in to their deal missives.

A recent example on a deal involving an airline has one partner quoted as saying: “Because both parties had a clear flight plan in mind, the deal was completed smoothly.” Another deal for Heineken includes the quote: “We were proud to toast on such a great ending.”

Komisch, ja?
