    Simply brilliant stuff…. Who knew that “House” (Hugh Laurie) could kiss up in such a historically inaccurate way?

    Thanks for including this in your blog.

    I love Black Adder, quality stuff. Now I think I’ll spend a couple hours watching clips on YouTube.
    Thanks for putting this up.

    The topic of satire as critique in/of a wartime period begs further research… Humor as history? Great post.
