L: So Doug, the queen of England parachuted into the arena with James Bond to kick-start the Olympics. I'm sure you must have some comments on the – literally – passing parade.
Doug: Well, you know I'm no great fan of royalty. She's the leading representative of a useless, repressive, corrupt, and anachronistic institution. PR flacks are doing their best to rebrand her in an appealing way; she's essentially a commodity. So part of my mind was hoping her chute wouldn't open – even though I obviously wish no ill to an aged grandmother.
L: Awww… C'mon, Doug. You know it was a stunt double.
