Strange excerpt from a Telegraph profile of the world’s richest man, Mexico’s Carlos Slim:
We sweep through the streets, while Mr Slim on speaker-phone dictates a letter in heavily accented English to the film director George Lucas via his secretary, Silvia.
“It was great to see you so unexpectedly the other day,” he says. “You should come to Mexico, and we can spend some time together.” Then, correcting himself: “No, change that. That sounds too gay.”
