The British political system has an officer with the title "Lord Privy Seal". He's essentially a messenger who delivers documents from and to top Government people that can't be risked in regular mail.
One one occasion, the Lord Privy Seal arrived at Churchill's country residence just after breakfast when Churchill was in the bathroom. His secretary went and knocked on the bathroom door and said "The Lord Privy Seal is here and insists that you see him immediately."
Churchill's response was "Pray inform the Lord Privy Seal that I am sealed in the privy and I can only deal with one s**t at a time."
