I guess I'm pretty thick today! I read the first 3 or 4 and thought WTH is this stuff? I don't believe John Wayne would say these things. What's up with him "talking" to Obama? :unsure:

I skipped to the bottom and I recognized the Princess Anne comment; I realized Dave was posting about the Duke of Edinburgh, not THE DUKE!!! :laugh:

Dave, I have heard that Phillip has foot-in-mouth disease. Rereading these, I can see why! :laugh:
