While the comedian-interviewer Graham Norton is famous for inviting an eclectic and interesting collection of guests onto his BBC TV show, no-one expected that Lady Anne Glenconnor – former Lady in Waiting to Princess Margaret – would prove to be such a hoot.  She amused and shocked both the audience and fellow guests with revelations from her memoirs – out on sale now ready for Christmas.

During her interview, Lady Glenconnor made the most interesting use of the word “squelching” since it was similarly employed by Sex Pistols punk rocker Johnny Rotten (John Lydon) in 1977.  By the way, Johnny Rotten’s infamous quote in a Rolling Stone interview was: “Love is 2 minutes and 52 seconds of squelching noises…”

Both mentions hint at why such activities are frowned upon on astronaut-carrying spacecraft.  Well, apart from the hygiene reasons, the electronics, and crew morale might also go kerflooey (due to the hazards of escaping fluids, jealously etc).

At this point we wonder if Lady Glenconnor and Johnny Rotten ever knew each other? Not in the biblical (squelching) sense of the word, of course.
