I knelt at Larry Ellison’s feet

DOWN THE Rose & Crown yesterday evening and was reminiscing with a chap about Larry Ellison – he from Oracle.

In Paris, back in the 1990s, I once attended a press conference with Larry on the dais. I was a little hungover,  but my eyes were at the level of his shoes.  They were wondrously crafted shoes. My eyes gradually moved up from his shoes to his socks to his trousers to his jacket and I realised that the value of his shoes alone were more than all the money I had ever spent on clothes on my life.

A chap at the R&C said he was in a Park Lane posh car sale room years back when Larry took a shine to an expensive car.

He paid for it with his Amex card.

That’s a green Amex card, by the way. ♥

  3. I’d never heard this one before:

    Oracle stands for: One Rich Asshole Called Larry Ellison…

    If I were to be a billionaire I think I’d be more Larry than Bill.

  4. He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe’s latchet I am not worthy to unloose?

    I see that O man, peeing into the wind, and saying: customers in this space going forward at the end of the day, it’s all cascading back on him now.

    We’d better not let the grass grow too long on these brown ones as they’re designed not to show just what they’ve been stepped into.
