Augustus FinkNottle, Chet’s October Friend of the Month, must derive his name from Augustus Fink-Nottle, close friend of Bertie Wooster in P.G. Wodehouse’s Jeeves and Wooster series, Bertie being a sort of man about town in London and various country houses and Jeeves being his butler. Bertie narrates – a brilliant decision on Wodehouse’s part in comedic terms, since Bertie is very often not quite in the picture and Jeeves is always the smartest character in every book. Bertie has a number of buddies who hang out at the Drones club, getting mildly sauced, although not Gussie, who sticks to orange juice. Except on one occasion in Right Ho, Jeeves, where Gussie is roped into giving the prize day speech at Market Snodsbury Grammar School and fortifies – or over-fortifies – himself to do so. One of the funniest scenes in fiction, and my guess is that our Gussie’s human companion knows it well.

So many great photos coming in! The random number generator – overheating now! – speaks: “Augustus FinkNottle!” That makes Augustus FN Chet’s October Friend of the Month over on the FB page. Augustus will be the profile pic for the month – and thanks to Jilly who handled that job so well in Sept. – and Augustus’s human companion will get a signed copy of the latest Chet and Bernie novel, Tender Is The Bite. Next month this could be you! Just post a pic to the FB page. R#G, now resting comfortably, does the rest. (And we hope to hear from the human companion soon, especially about that name!)
