Do you enjoy passing scathing comments at the dinner table, in place of the salt you were supposed to be passing to great.aunt.mary?

Do you stroll about town in your sunday best, on days which most certainly aren't sunday, just because you feel it makes you better somehow?

Do you abhor the tacky, and embrace the elegant?

Or do you find the elegance in 'tacky'?
