Sample Text:

Let’s Meet Henry VIII

Interviewer:    Hmm, now, how should I address you?

Henry:             Your Majesty?

Interviewer:    I was thinking more along the lines of … Monster!

Henry:             Why, you .. How dare you?

Interviewer:    Oh, quite easily given you no longer have the power to behead me!

Henry:             I don’t?

Interviewer:    Nah, fraid not! We no longer do that kind of thing

Henry:             We don’t?

Interviewer:    Or rather, neither kings nor queens have the power to do that.

Henry:             Really? Well, that’s outrageous. Have you never heard of absolute power?

Interviewer:    As a matter of fact I have – but it’s no longer of any use to you. We’ve moved on. As I said the 21st century is a civilized time to live. And we have a constitutional monarch, Elizabeth II

Henry:             Ah, well, that explains it! Women! It’s why I was so against having one following me as monarch.
