Celebrity divorces are inevitably great sources for quotes. None more so than when Robin Williams (he of Mrs Doubtfire fame, and yes I am old enough to remember him in Mork and Mindy too) speaking on a TV Interview show earlier this week, said “I think a lot of times divorce can be like circumcision with a weed whacker!”

Fortunately for Williams, it sounds as though the whole process is going smoother than that for him. Married for 19 years, it has been reported that the divorce documents lodged in court in San Francisco in March include a commitment to be respectful of each other, to keep their children at the forefront and to try to avoid courtroom clashes. Presumably he won’t, therefore, have to disguise himself as a female nanny to maintain contact with his son.

Please don't blame me for this, but wasn't it Robin Williams who said "See, the problem is that God gives men a brain and a penis, and only enough blood to run one at a time."

If he didn't, he certainly should have!

I wish all couples had that attitude (and actually stuck to it) during the process. It'd make it less painful for the kids.
