Anthropological tales

From Andrew Brown’s Blog

I happened to be talking to an anthropologist this morning, and the conversation turned to a celebrated academic. “I knew him when I was at New College”, she said. “I was in a lift with him once. There were just the two of us. I was wearing a miniskirt and he put his hand up it.”
“!!??!!” I said: “Did he know you?”

“No. Not at all. We hadn’t spoken or anything. He was well known for it. I kicked him, hard, on the shin … I have never ever read any of his books, because of that.”
