All hail Prince Philip

You gotta love the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip. I was reading through this Telegraph article, Around the world in 20 gaffes, when I saw that he had almost monopolized the list. Now I'd heard of his predisposition for political incorrectness earlier, so I went looking and found this: Relive 65 classic gaffes as Duke of Edinburgh celebrates 65th wedding anniversary

Click through for a jolly good time.

My favorites:
  • To Simon Kelner, republican editor of The Independent, at Windsor Castle reception: “What are you doing here?” “I was invited, sir.” Philip: “Well, you didn’t have to come.”
  • To female sea cadet last year: “Do you work in a strip club?”
  • To deaf children by steel band, 2000: “Deaf? If you’re near there, no wonder you are deaf.”
  • To a tourist in Budapest in 1993: “You can’t have been here long, you haven’t got a pot belly.”
  • To a woman solicitor, 1987: “I thought it was against the law for a woman to solicit.”
  • To then Paraguay dictator General Stroessner: “It’s a pleasure to be in a country that isn’t ruled by its people.

Also, you might want to see this for a little more context on few of the quotes above.
