  • Excuse me, sir. I feel bound to speak. Now, all of us secrete, from time to time. I should emphasise that I have nothing whatsoever against secretion, in the appropriate time and place. That said, there exists such a thing as excessive - frankly, offensive - secretion; particularly in public. In view of the fact that there are ladies present, I will refrain from debagging you in the style of an Eton fag - but kindly quit your succorrhoea.
