A Funny Story

Heard two other funny stories involving Tony Lewis recently:

---

When Lewis was reporting on the England tour of the West Indies in 89-90
his wife was trying to phone him at his hotel in Guyana. Eventually she
managed to get a connection:

"Hello" she said.
"Hello there" was the reply. "Who's this?".
"It's your best friend and lover".

Long pause. Eventually - "which one?".
"Which one? How many have you ***y got? - Wait a second, is this Tony Lewis?"
"No, it's Chris Lewis".

---

The other one was after Chris Lewis did a photo spread for a magazine recently
which apparently did not involve much clothing. Tony Lewis was accosted by
one of the old duffers at Lord's and accused of bringing shame to the game
of cricket by exposing his body to gutter journalism for profit. The only
thing Tony Lewis could think of was how much worse things would have been
if it had been him who'd done the photo session!
