Phil the Greek
I fucking love this bloke. He's a legend with his numerous faux pas and general not give a shittery. I've met him a couple of times and he's ace. 2_Deck_Dash can confirm what he's like, as he sees him at BBQ's etc. Anyway, here's his latest;
Prince Philip about Hannah Jackson, blonde in red dress: 'I'd be arrested if I unzipped that' | Mail Online
Some other classics he's come out with are;
'Do you still throw spears at each other?' To Aboriginal leader William Brin during a visit to the Aboriginal Cultural Park in Queensland, 2002.
'I would like to go to Russia very much — although the bastards murdered half my family.' In 1967, when asked if he would like to visit the Soviet Union.
'It looks as though it was put in by an Indian.' The Prince's verdict on a fuse box given during a tour of a Scottish factory in August 1999. He later apologised: 'I meant to say cowboys. I just got my cowboys and Indians mixed up.'
'If it has got four legs and it is not a chair, if it has got two wings and it flies but is not an aeroplane, and if it swims and it is not a submarine, the Cantonese will eat it.' To a meeting of the World Wildlife Fund in 1986.
Anyone care to add some more of Phil's or their own classic one liners?Targets will fall when hit....

I like the line "spotting Hannnah Jackson,25 on a trip with his wife to Bromley" that would be Mrs Mounbatten then.

"I'd much rather have stayed in the Navy, frankly." When asked what he felt about his life in 1992. There's quite a few who have echoed those sentiments.Sh1t shot, pumping slop.

Talking of saying the wrong thing, i remember being in a Covent Garden pub (The Comedy) and chatting to two gorgeous girls with a mucker of mine. We were all getting on like a house on fire and you didn't need to be Sherlock Homo to know i was getting my oats that night, bar something major happening. Detecting an accent, i asked the girls where they were from. "We're Finnish" replied the one who was clearly going to get it from me later. "You look a bit fattish to me" replied my fuckwitted friend. Needless to say, the only hand that held my cock that night was mine.Targets will fall when hit....

I reckon if he never met Liz, he could have been the UK's own Hugh Hefner.

The bloke is a fucking legend! I have a book of his quotes somewhere, very amusing read and obviously something you can pick up whenever the fancy takes you."What do you want to do when you grow up son?"
"Join the navy."
"Well you can't do both!"
