Penny Black's Insurance Week - 30 January 2014


Oval staff received a treat this week when the area outside their office was transformed into a film set – with none other than Jack Bauer himself, Kiefer Sutherland, among the famous faces on site filming scenes for the return of TV thriller 24.

Pictures on Twitter show a burning taxi flipped upside down directly outside the broker’s premises, and staff on the firm’s front desk described Mr Sutherland as “quite hunky”.

Penny just hopes that with Oval deep in talks over a sale to Gallagher, the logo in the background doesn’t mean the May release of 24: Live Another Day is immediately out of date.

Meanwhile, Penny was left mortified during a trip to Gibraltar last week after witnessing a moment of indecent exposure by one of the Rock’s residents. That the perpetrator of the unfortunate incident was one of the island’s primates – which reacted to a moment of innocent grooming by standing boldly to attention – was scant consolation.

Penny is all for natural acts of self-expression, but 10am in broad daylight is just beyond the pale. It was all too much for a woman of Penny’s delicate constitution – one had to fetch the smelling salts.
