Phony Excuse?

Dorothy Parker was among a group of celebrated wits who regularly congregated at the Round Table in the dining room of New York's famed Algonquin Hotel (not far from the offices of The New Yorker (to which many of them contributed).

"Excuse me, I have to go to the bathroom," she declared, before adding: "I really have to telephone, but I'm too embarrassed to say so."
