Rise of the Jeeves

So much of the world can be understood from P.G. Wodehouse. For example I keep thinking of Jeeves, in the modern world. Extraordinary intellect, brain bursting with ideas, yet content to live out his life as the valet of a much, much, intellectually inferior chap. That’s what most of the services focused white collar world looks like — investment bankers, consultants, lawyers — Jeeveses pretending to be Woosters. The world of butlers has expanded to include a few other things, but butlers remain butlers.
