Today's paper has a quote that should rank up there with "Well, he would, wouldn't he?" (Mandy Rice Davies)

"I thought it was spinach dip." (Monica Lewinsky)

All I can say is that if the stain resembled spinach dip, Bill must have had one hell of a medical problem!

When asking for her blue dress to be dry cleaned the deaf Chinese laundry man said to Monica – “come again” to which she replied “no mustard this time”

The laundry man was looking through the pockets of the blue dress, because Monica said she had a wad of Bill's on the dress.

What were the circumstances that brought the 'stain' into the public domain? - and the subsequent DNA check?

Apologies for running off-thread, but this astounded me; the bit about the DNA, that is.

A woman was charged a few days ago, in Oz, for inciting a scare campaign involving sewing needles inserted into strawberries.
Police were able to verify her as the perpetrator by DNA obtained from the needles found inside the strawberries.
That is a MIGHTILY small human DNA sample.

That is a MIGHTILY small human DNA sample....especially since the needle had, presumably, been in a strawberry. I'd have thought it would have been destroyed by the acidity of the fruit, not that I'm any sort of expert.

Should go down in History (https://www.pprune.org/jet-blast/615405-should-go-down-history.html#post10310437) She did, for all of the rest of us.
She went down in the present only for Bill.

Agreed. I would guess the eye of a needle would be pretty effective at capturing a small sample of skin cells if it was oriented right when the needle was held and pushed. And they had multiple test pieces.

DNA can be quite robust and a strawberry is not such a bad environment to host it - the strawberry itself is packed with strawberry DNA which it does not self-destroy once put into the supermarket.
