‘The Mad Dwarf And The Nympho Schizo’

Only in an ad dude’s trial would a “dwarf” and “schizo” be central to the plaintiff’s case:

Testifying against Marco Benatti, WPP chief Martin Sorrell last week in open court in London accused his former employee of disseminating a “vicious” image of him and a female executive and branding them “the mad dwarf and the nympho schizo.”

Sorrell is suing for libel and claims Benatti launched a smear campaign against him in an effort “to discredit and undermine his reputation.”

“Mad dwarf” and “nympho schizo” — that would do it.
