This clip is too funny to hide away in a reply to a comment …

I had never met my mother-in-law until she was invited to meet her son’s fiancée. In a log cabin in the English Lake District. The fiancée had left lying around her complicated knitting and a pretentious French book by some rabid feminist. My mother-in-law almost had a heart attack. We get on well now, but it was not the best start.
