    Girl: “Why are you so tight-lipped?”
    Boy: “Loose lips sink ships.”
    (2) “We’re gonna need a taller microphone!”

    (4) Three boys at Eton, from right to left:

    (5) Prince Charming and Cinderella practicing for the ball at age 70.

    1. They still do, exactly the same dress code. Many of our Conservative Prime Ministers went to Eton, including Johnson and Cameron, Gladstone, McMillan, Anthony Eden, and Douglas-Home. Prince William also went there.
      So, not for the ‘Common people’!
      Best wishes, Pete.
