    “Your Majesty….”

    “Your Excellency. We have so much is common!”

    “We do?”

    “Yes! We are both ceremonial title holders!”

    “Wow! That explains why I feel left out in Guyana!”

    “Get used to it! So what can I do for you?”

    “Please, come back and run the country. We have no clue what we’re doing. Fifty years later and we are still late with the times. Everybody is a boss and everybody is taking from everybody. What’s a man to do?”

    “You need to ask a man.”

    “What kind of man? ”

    “Phillip, my dear, advise David on what a man must do!”

    “Well, David, you must have a pair…”

    “I like pears, but I don’t have any.”

    “Then grow a pair and come again!”

    “Do you have any pear seeds?”

    “Goodness, gracious. I can’t give you a pair of my seeds. Grow your own, man!”

    “Carl, I am beginning to think this is a ceremonial trip.”

    “You are really, really slow, David. You are visiting the Queen, not the Prime Minister. She’s busy getting ready to pull out.”

    “Wow! She’s the MAN! Let’s go see her!”
