For example, I know that it's traditionally the least Spanish city, but you'd never know they had a monarchy, coming here as a tourist - as opposed to the U.K., where the Queen is probably the best-known animal, vegetable and/or mineral going when it comes to overseas visitors.

Touring on 'Folie' was like being the last act at the vaudeville show: We were rotten vegetable targets in clandestine hoods.

I had a ton of animals; I had a goat growing up, a bunch of rabbits, a vegetable garden.

Listen to me: Leek is a vegetable. It can be the center of a dish.
