Sir Humphrey on the End of CoOp

I will probably retire this meme for future blogging, but I thought I’d close my CoOp posts with one last quote from Sir Humphrey Appleby:

“Minister, I have some very grave news.”

“Yes, Humphrey?”

“The relationship, which I might tentatively aver has been not without a degree of reciprocal utility and even occasional gratification, is approaching a point of irreversible bifurcation and, to be brief, is in the propinquity of its ultimate, regrettable, termination.”

“I see.”

“I’m on my way out.”


“One has to accept what fate has in store, when one passes on.”

“Passes on?”

“To pastures new, perhaps greener.”
