Look at all the telegrams in the Bertie Wooster stories. I always laugh at Bertie's telegram style; he uses the expected clipped language but goes on and on with all kinds of filler that doesn't add any meaning. Clearly he's loaded because his telegrams use way more words than they need to, and he doesn't care.
