Now, Britain won’t send Prince Harry to Iraq.
That’s very unusual, because Andrew went to the Falklands. The king of Scotland used to go with a little bag of earth, a little bit of Scotland, so if he died the new king could put a little earth in his shoes, so when he stood there he could be standing in Scotland.
Pamela Stephenson, your wife, was a comic and an actress and is now a psychologist. Does she help you?
I try things on her. There was a thing recently. She’s too politically correct. If I say, “dwarf,” she says, “No, no, it’s little person.” I say, “I have to say, ‘dwarf,’ I’ll tell you why at the end.” I’ll talk about the situation of the two names, and she says, “Oh, they’ll be offended.” I don’t care. Whether you’re writing a book or a play or a song, at some point you have to say, “I couldn’t give a fuck what you think, this is what I’m writing.” Or you get nothing done at all. Especially in comedy.
