Duke of Edinburgh Bon Mots

From the April 5, 2010 issue of "Army Times":

"A royal visit by England's Prince Phillip to a naval training base provides a good lesson in why distinguished visitors need to have a little small talk prepared. Told by a sea cadet instructor that she also worked at a club, the 88-year old prince 'asked if it was a strip club,' said Cadet Elizabeth Rendle, a 24-year old who was among those who spoke with the prince. The Daily Mail reports that Rendle, who is a barmaid and not a stripper, wasn't offended because she thinks he was joking. 'I don't think he put his foot in it.' she said. 'We were all laughing.'"

Top drills, Sir. :worship: :1: You regularly transcend the mundane and bring out some real crackers. :p
