Smug is good.

This clip was sent into us by Nigel in London.

Obviously we're big fans of Stephen Fry here at GrammarBlog and in this sketch I love the way Fry revels in the smugness of his character and the intellectual gibberish he comes up with. (I shouldn't end my sentence with a preposition, should I?)

I have to confess to never before having seen this sketch before. (That preposition rule is one up with which I shall not put.)

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Nigel - keep them coming.

That's excellent. Demagoguery!

Oh dear. I think I wrote "I've add" How embarrassing!

Your fears were unfounded Elizabeth, but I'm glad to see you share some of our neuroses.

Incidentally GrammarBloggers, Elisabeth's blog it the highest ranking blog in Google when searching for the term:

"Hold the newsreader's nose squarely waiter, or friendly milk will countermand my trousers."

And that makes her OK in my book.
