Sir Freud Tells a Joke and Picks a Fight

Ever heard of Clement Freud? He was Sigmund's grandson, and he died earlier this year at 84. He was a politician, author, chef and a frequent guest on radio shows. The two clips below give a good sense, I imagine, of his drollness. In the first clip, audio only, he's telling a funny dirty joke. (I found it at Pacific Standard.) In the second, he's sparring with a gossip columnist named Rona Barrett on Jack Paar Tonight in 1973.

Oh, he was also in a series of commercials for dog food with a basset hound.
