  • hog-whimpering, adj. hog-whimpering drunk

    The Guardian, 25 September 2015:

    Rupert Soames, for example. He was my most joyous interviewee and a splendidly unguarded one (see panel), so much so that a merchant bank ended its interest in hiring him soon after the piece appeared. It was Soames who introduced me to the phrase “hog-whimpering” and Soames who, in a few simple sentences, delivered a beautifully compressed history of the recent changes in Oxford values. (He was, after all, Churchill’s grandson.) “You see,” he said, “students went through the 60s thinking the world was organised in a bad way and that they could do something about it. Absolutely wrongly, as it turned out. Now people take themselves less seriously, which is very, very attractive. Oxford’s a charmed existence before you go out into the world and take a job of high responsibility. Also, it’s a wonderful place to meet a wife. There are so many lovely and clever girls about.”
