    it comes through just fine in these particular stories (whereas another favorite, "The Poker", I won't even bother with here - one translation I saw had to include a paragraph-long explanation of why the story is so funny, heh.)  The translator lays it on a little thick with the slang in "The Lady Aristocrat", and it starts leaning a bit toward openly instead of delicately mocking, but I think it still works.
