The little monkey absolutely cracked me up on a recent National Trust visit recently; before going into Lacock, we saw a sign saying people were welcome to visit one of the holiday rental properties (a cottage built in 1445!) Everyone was welcome, that is, except us. I was holding the McBaby's bike so a lady immediately pounced on me and said: "You can't ride that bike in here!"
"I wasn't going to? And neither was he".
"you can't carry it either, you'll get the carpets muddy."
"OK, can we leave it here?
"No, it will be in the way." (It wasn't).
As we leave, McBaby says to the lady: "We're very sorry, your Majesty". Without a trace of irony. I love him.
