    I never noticed John’s dimples before. I had no idea that parrots could even have dimples!

    I love the rapport between these two. Just watching them “hang out” with each other is hilarious. John needs to be a regular visitor. Maybe give him 3-5 minutes on Monday’s to comment on the news of the week with Seth.

    Go on, John. The coverage of filthy Phil’s passing here in the UK has been hugely over the top. Let’s remember he began wooing Auld Liz when she was just 13 and he was 18. What’s the word I’m looking for? Oh, yeah, grooming. A sick bunch of weirdos.

    Penny S. I am REALLY disappointed that you repeated Seth’s grossly misleading statement- “they were cousins” (3:02). John MISLEADS us in allowing that to stand! The Queen and Price Philip were NO WHERE NEAR first cousins! FIVE British Monarchs held the throne after the remote connection- Queen Victoria (way back in the 1800s)! This is not a British “Tennessee” – hardly!
    Sheesh… Queen Victoria, holy crow, half of European royalty had some connection to her back in the 1800s! way more diluted biology than many Americans!

    A friend, many years ago went to a VERY small party hosted by Douglas Fairbanks Jr. & the Duke in NYC. On the coffee table was a charming polaroid of the Prince without his dress but fetching in his stockings and garter belt. Nothing else… Oh maybe lipstick. Instead of leaving with the pic, she left with something that required a visit to the doctor!
