This is just a mere tidbit, the point of which is only about 30 seconds short. But if you're a fan of the brilliant Fawlty Towers, it's long enough.
The event was a 2008 charity extravaganza in London in honor of Prince Charles's 60th birthday, entitled, We are Most Amused.

John Cleese was host for the night, and apparently one of the running jokes was that he'd been getting pummeled all night. What happens next -- well, you probably have a slight idea from the image below -- but it's a joy to see Manuel and Meester Faaawlty together again, even if only briefly.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
