Thanks David (in London)...I love that short!! Have you seen the one where Lynch interviews a monkey about a murder?
Avatar 🍳 Swag For Life Member 9:10am Handy Haversack:

“It’s probably not true, but it’s about Marie Antoinette and a butcher. The butcher led a mob into the palace at Versailles. He had a cleaver in his hand and he was shouting that he was going to cut Marie Antoinette’s throat. The mob killed the guards and the butcher forced the door of the royal apartments. At last he rushed into her bedroom. She was alone. Standing by a window. There was no one else there. The butcher with a clever in his hand and the queen.”

“What happened?”

...

“He fell on his knees and burst into tears.”

She was silent for a moment.

“Poor butcher.”

“I believe that’s exactly what Marie Antoinette said.”

Don’t forget the national anthem , La Marseillaise. I’m partial to the version from Casablanca where the expatriots out-sing the Nazis in Nick’s, but there’s a good low quality punk version out there for something a little more ballsy.
