For many, many years now, my friend M and I have found the British royal family and their general idiocy incredibly funny. I can't remember how the joke started, but it was over a decade ago, and has lasted to this day. Anyway, as you can imagine, we have found the Nazi Harry story particularly amusing, but naturally, what has really captured our imaginations is horrible horse-faced Prince William's fancy dress costume. And so I present

'Yes, do mention the war, especially to the royal fool!'

 Did you see this headline in the observer yesterday? It made me laugh a lot

Hee, I didn't see it yesterday, but I just looked at the article on the guardian/observer website. It made me laugh too!

But it still doesn't answer the burning question: WAS WILLIAM DRESSED AS A LEOPARD OR A LION?????????


From:MM
To:stelllanova

william, according the article above that one, wore a HOMEMADE leopard skin costume....

There's another article in yesterday's observer which contains even more hilarious info. My favourite quotations:

"It could have been worse. At Cotswold Costumes, Harry had tried on an SS costume only to find it was too small."

"'Obviously Harry is unusual in some ways, unusually dim perhaps."

AND BEST OF ALL:

"Prince William turned heads in what appeared to be a home made leopardskin outfit, continuing the jungle theme of his 21st birthday when he wore little but a Tarzan loin cloth."

!!!!!!!


This being sent towards the end of the working day, it received no reply. Until late last night, when I received the following text message:

"William selected a black leotard, covered with a leopardskin pattern and leopard claws and tail" !!

To which I could only reply, in horrified all caps:

OH MY GOD.

And now, words fail me. I must let the story rest.

Meanwhile, Magill Magazine is suggesting we rejoin the Commonwealth. Which means we'd have the Royals as our heads of state. Dear lord.

My God, are they really suggesting that? Who's editing that rag these days?

Eamonn Delany, I believe. He's suggesting Ireland should "join the Anglosphere", ie, kiss up to America and the UK etc etc etc.

It's a serious right wing, neo-con publication, I read it because have an interest in politics, but I usually end up throwing it at the wall and growling.

Not all Commonwealth counties have the Queen as their head of state. When India gained independence and wanted to remain a member of the Commonwealth as a republic, the requirement to be under the crown was dropped.

Interesting. I had thought the Queen was the de facto head of state.

But I still wouldn't want Ireland to re-join...I simply can't see any economic or political benefit. And besides, the EU really makes it irrelevant, or it will do in the next decade or so.

They both strike me as being as dumb as toast, honestly. And yes, William is pretty horsey-looking. (I cannot imagine anyone being attreacted to him, much less describing him as a sex symbol, minus the money-and-power factor.)
