Jeeves in the Morning

The Voco Clock will awaken you with the dulcet tones of Stephen Fry's voice:

"I'm so sorry to disturb you, Sir, but it appears to be morning. Very inconvenient I agree. I believe it is the rotation of the earth that is to blame, Sir."

Then "Madam" version is forthcoming.

I assume it's not called the Jeeves clock since the Voco people do not have permission from the Wodehouse estate to use the name. But seeing as Fry is known as the fellow who most recently portrayed the butler, the implication is that you have a butler with the pedigree of a Jeeves.

But, of course, unlike all of us, Bertie Wooster did not have a reason for getting up.

A gentlemanly tip of the bowler to Dad! Thanks Dad!
