alec guinness meat expert

The Jedi cloak Alec Guinness wore in Star Wars was put up for auction this week. Despite his fame, and the extraordinary amount of money he made from Star Wars as he cleverly negotiated a percentage deal from the film, Guinness spent most of his last fifty years living quietly near Petersfield, Hampshire. But his phone number was one digit different to the local butchers, and he received an endless stream of calls from people looking to buy meat. After some years, Guinness tired of explaining that they had the wrong number and instead amused himself by patiently taking their order, then berating them for making bad meat selections.
