Something I completely missed as a child


I've watched this movie SOOOOO many times but it was only 2 years ago that I cottoned on to what exactly the King had said to his son in the garden.

He says "I always assumed...you had SEX with your batheeeeeers....I know I do!!" (big grin)

As a kid I always thought he meant "bathers" as in "swimsuit" so that essentially he was saying he had sex with his bathers on. Stupid I know but that was my child's view of the world because as an adult I think it's kinda sad that the King cheats on such a lovely and dignified wife.

In many cultures its common for royalty to have concubines.

Very true mostly for childbearing but in this case it seems pretty clear to me the King just likes a good roll in the hay with the help.

Yours sincerely, General Joseph Liebgott

isn't he just talking about his youth? Before he was married?

reply

defs not, he is saying flat out that he fucks the chicks who wash him. Probs daily depending on his libido. I mean i havent seen the movie in ten plus years but i saw it a shitload whilst younger.
