Quotation of the Day

Via this site, I am reminded of one of my favourite quotations of all time. You couldn't make it up.

In 1948, an American radio station decided that getting in touch with various leading foreign ambassadors based in Washington D.C. and asking them what one thing they would most like for Christmas might make for an interesting seasonal programme...

French Ambassador: "Peace on Earth."
Soviet Ambassador: "Freedom for all the people in the world enslaved by imperialism."
British Ambassador: "Well it's very kind of you to ask. I'd quite like a box of crystallised fruit."

Merry Christmas everybody.
