Extraordinary Gentlemen

Sunday I picked up a copy of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen --- a "graphic novel" (aka comic) in collected paperback book format, promising on its cover "Soon To Be a Major Motion Picture". I bought it not so much for its content, though that seems droll enough, as for its title. Certain phrases just grab my ear and won't let go. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen proffers that perfect tone of Victorian formality ... like the Ganymede club for gentleman's gentleman Jeeves and his fellows, cupbearers to the drones of society ...
