British is best

Some things the Brits just do so much better than we, including theater and eccentricity. An obituary of one Bindy Lambton from the Telegraph of the UK:
Bindy had no education, since she was expelled from 11 schools for various wildnesses, only one of which is recorded - that of putting a bell-shaped impediment under the headmistress's piano pedal.
Right from the start, however, Bindy's extraordinary individuality, handsome good looks, high spirits and original wit began to attract an army of life-long admirers. When she was 18 she met and married Tony Lambton, son of the fifth Earl of Durham, and embarked enthusiastically on married life.

Read it all here. Bindy sounds like a fun date.
