That wasn't the answer I was expecting, although, now that I think about it, I knew that about Prince Philip.

I was expecting something along the lines of people who are famous in a different nationality than they grew up in.

I don't see what the big deal is -- there are hundreds of women who worship me! Every time they see me, they say "OH! My God!"

I thought it would be something about false teeth. What about worshiping women?
