The beauty and impossibility of stroking 

Just as Norm reports on the health benefits of regular stroking (for women, anyway), I bumped into this soundbite - from Lenin, of all people - at The Voice Of The Turtle:

"I can’t listen to music often, it affects my nerves, makes me want to say silly compliments, stroke people on the head for living in this filthy hell and creating such beauty. But nowadays, you mustn’t stroke anybody on the head, or they’ll bite your hand off; you must beat them over their heads, beat them without any mercy, though in principle we’re against using violence on people."

So, stroke people for their benefit, beat them over the heads for the benefit of the world. A fitting suggestion for every member of the royal family, as Chris pretty much argues here.
