The superb Ritz hotel doorman Michael O’Dowdall always offers a joke as he opens the Rolls door for me. “I was reading a book about glue. Couldn’t put it down.” Another: “How do you get a bear out of a tree with cheese? Camembert.” C’mon bear—geddit? C’mon bear sounds like camembert. Don’t think it’s funny? Sneak in the back door then.
