  1. Harold’s fortune cookie read: When making judgments, don’t be Hastings.

  2. What’s all this I hear about the English fearing the threat of Caucasions? Why I’m white and I think I’m a pretty nice guy. Some of my best friends are white and they’re nice too. I’d be fearing those Germans if I were King Harold.

    Ehhhh, that’s threat of INVASIONS, Dr. Bjornsen.

    Ohhhh, that’s very different. Never mind.
