Just saw the old Queen...boy has she aged....and two things jumped out at me:
Where the hell did she get that Christmas Tree? Looked like it came from the local dump. I was fully expecting to see a bunch of birds fly out of it at any minute. It could only strive to be old and ratty...
Lastly, is it just me but why do I feel like she's talking to a bunch of shareholders at a Company Board Meeting. I was just waiting for her to bring out the General Ledger and tell us about the financial state of the country. Not a people friendly person at all.
Chuck will eventually realise his peculiarities and peccadilloes have knackered him for serious contention when she falls off the perch which will leave prince William and Harry Pothead in pole position to introduce a new "double act" style of reign.
Certainly it cain't be good when ordnery folks speak ill of the Queen. After all, God Bless yadda yadda etc.
That's him on the left in ceremonial pink drag.
One will let the slam at HRM go for now, as that photo was enough to get one interested in the fraulein on the right, who, upon further investigation one has learned is named Kathrin, who seems besotten (or vice versa) with some bloke named Jan.
One is tempted to learn German to test young K's attachment to Herr Kramer.
One also believes the vodka is finally starting to kick in...
An invisible King? Sounds reasonable, and I like your priorities, but there may be a little credibility problem with the masses. This is simply remedied by appointing Mr Draper as your, umm, chief of staff, secretary of state, Nancy Reagan, or whatever euphemism you apply to the one who makes all the decisions.
I'm just a little concerned that in this brave new world all the luvvies will be executed and there will be nobody left to make the movies or guitar music that Mayor Draper professes to love.
These little anomalies however are usually solved with the right appointments. I suggest Donald Rumsfeld.
All hail His Invisible Majesty. In this reign it finally matters not if the Emperor wears no clothes, and that is surely what we should be aiming for.
I recommend subversives like Blue Wolf should be the first executed. For humanitarian reasons only, you understand, for I am a compassionate conservative.
I was more thinking along the lines of her getting stuck into the members of the population who want her gone. Or admitting she thinks that Harry is the only one in the family who really knows how to have a good time. And her secret plot to have Ann's dog killed.
Commissioner of Police Sir Fred Slave, OBE, today defended his decision to release an unknown hick from Australia without charges, despite said hick being timed at 180km/hr in Oxford St on Christmas Eve in a stolen police car.
"While the general public may see this as yet another example of undeserved privilege being directed to the common man", said Sir Fred, "we feel that no good can be served by locking up Mr Binoculars, a respected member of the Colonial Whingers Society".
Sir Fred rejected suggestions that the case had any connection with recent claims by Mr Binoculars in the News of the Masses that he had incriminating photographs of Princess Anne in an intimate embrace with a front-running contender for the British equestrian Olympic team for Beijing. The rider of the Olympic contender did not return our calls.
Members of the Royal Family, while publicly refusing to comment, are privately aghast at the idea of their privileges being extended to ordinary mortals, let alone colonials.
