Lord Privy Seals

Richard Dawkins has written a takedown of the upcoming propaganda film Expelled. He’s mostly running through the same (valid) talking points about the stupidity of creationism and intelligent design. What I found most interesting was his use of the term “Lord Privy Seal” to refer to overly-literal cutaway shots that lame documentaries use to illustrate their narrations. Like if the narrator mentions the Lord Privy Seal, we would see a shot of a king followed by a shot of a privy followed by a seal.
