Diners at a trendy restaurant in London’s Liverpool Street looked on in disbelief yesterday, after hedge fund investor, Myles de Vere, was heard to say of the extremely pink rack of lamb he had just been served ‘Blimey, a good vet could get that back on its feet again’.
‘There was a bit of a commotion behind me as some chairs were knocked over and suddenly this chap shouted “Stand back, I’m a vet!” He shooed us away from our table and erected a makeshift screen around it using a few tablecloths,’ said de Vere. ‘We heard some kind of activity going on for ten minutes or so, and then suddenly to everyone’s amazement, there was a bleating sound and to tumultuous applause the chap came out from behind the screen carrying a beautiful fluffy lamb.’
Restaurant proprietor Gino Ricci, told reporters: ‘It was amazing and certainly the publicity has done us no harm. But sadly I have had to ban the vet as the cute and cuddly lovely little lamb was so frightened that it shat all over my restaurant and ruined my expensive Sicilian tiling … Where is the lamb now? Oh, back in the chiller.’
