A foodian slip

"This fantastic evening," said Norwood president Richard Desmond, introducing Carol Sopher, chairman of the charity’s annual dinner on Monday, "has been organised by Carole Sobell".

Whoops! Ms Sobell was not even the caterer, which was Tony Page. Made aware of the error, Mr Desmond continued, “Sorry Carol... What do you want to call me?”

The gracious hostess declined the offer. Any suggestions?
