Diary: CHI's kinky capers cook up a shock for Grossman

The white-washed headquarters of Clemmow Hornby Inge may give the impression of a pure establishment that breeds nothing more than good ideas. But looks can be deceptive. Last Thursday, CHI held its monthly quiz. The theme? Porn!

Staff filed into the fourth-floor bar to find it "decorated" as a strip club, lit with red bulbs, adorned with gold drapes and flavoured condoms blown up as "balloons".

Dotted around the room were pictures with the heads of agency employees superimposed on to the shoulders of some well-known porn stars. In the toilets, guests also discovered porn mags and boxes of tissues for afterwards ...

If you feel queasy, look away. The general knowledge quiz saw employees answer posers that included the length of the largest todger on record, the number of people involved in the largest gangbang and what Ron Jeremy's real age is. In addition, the picture rounds included questions such as "moo milk or man milk" and "tunnel or funnel". Guests also had to replicate sexual positions on each other (fully clothed, we hasten to add)!

"Er, it went down well," one CHI insider told Diary. "Some people ended up sleeping over (not sure where), and there were some sore heads in the morning." Diary made its excuses and left at this point.

However, anyone wishing to copy the idea should be warned. The next day, Loyd Grossman, TV presenter and chef, came in for an interview and was found in the "porned-up" bar looking more than a little embarrassed.

Next month's theme night is a little less smutty. Sarah Gold and Warren Moore will be hosting a karaoke night.
