She was the greatest monarch England ever had, right?

That was Queen Victrola.

No, no, she was the ruler of Egypt who committed suicide using a snake.

Oh, yeah. She killed herself after stabbing Julia Caesar.

Yeah, but Julia Caesar didn't die. I hate Pretty Woman.

I think she was great opposite Richard Simmons in that movie.

I liked his music better than his acting, when he had a long tongue. Too bad Freddie Mercury died and they broke up.

I think you're thinking of Gene Kelly, and Freddie Mac.

Oh, yeah, Freddie Mac. I had the hots for Stevie Nicks when I was a kid.


The blind black singer? Sick, dude.
