Completely clueless to the ways of the world, yet wealthy enough to hire someone to follow you everywhere you go?

You need a Personal Explainer! Someone with a good idea of how things work to travel with you and explain them — in plain, easy-to-understand English. All the difficult, hard to comprehend aspects of your life become clear — using the internet, choosing the right wine for dinner, voting...

[Seems necessary, with the number of stupid yet successful people these days.]

       I already perform this function for my girlfriend and my mother.   

       Angel: Sorry, but I think poor Victoria is doing a "Shirley Valentine" (Talks to walls ...).   

       And it presupposes that the Explainee has a sufficient level of understanding to make the explanation worthwhile.

       Maybe we should hire these people for our president. A personal explainer paid for by the people and of the people.

       ...paging Colin Powell... Mr. Powell, please pick up the white courtesy phone...

       baked, baked and even more baked. every President or Prime Minister for the last few centuries has had political advisors to help them get their stupid little heads round complex issues. bush, of course, is the best example. he needs advisors to tell him how to chew and swallow.
