Linda Lovelace (dec'd) to dine with Felix Dennis?

I had to laugh at some mischief by Rob McGibbon during his video interview with Felix Dennis (see below). He asks the mega-millionaire magazine publisher whom he'd like to invite to his fantasy dinner table. Once we're past Freud we get to a woman who once worked with Charles Babbage (creator of the programmable computer back in the 19th Century). "What's her name?" struggles Felix, "Ada ... Lovelace ... is that it?" Actually, it's Augusta Ada Lovelace he's thinking of, the mathematician daughter of Byron, who in effect first conceived the idea of computer software. Alas, Rob mishears him thinking he said Linda Lovelace ("No!" barks Dennis) before flashing up on the screen a Deep Throat movie poster featuring the notorious actress cocksucker. Tsk.

Pour yourself a drink and watch a tremendous interview, click here. (The Lovelace bit's on the third video)

I went to school with Linda Lovelace...she was a few years older, but the nuns took her photo out of the year book in the library! To be honest, I thought she had passed away...I hated those nuns; hyporcritess! oh, how I loathed being told what to do by them!...

This thing you are flashing at the top - why do the Barclay Brothers love Duncan Fallowell? Did you realise his book was reviewed THREE times in the Telegraph? Daily, Sunday, and Travel section. Is there something here we should know about? Fallowell seen bobbing in dinghy towards their terrifying castle in the channel islands, holding a bottle of olive oil . . .

I'm sure the Barclay brothers are men of exquisite taste, and life on Brecqhou must get a trifle dull at times. So Duncan's book is the perfect distraction.
