Favorite British Words.

Lucky sister Ave won’t have to haul herself out of bed like the rest of us who want to see THE wedding.

    What wedding?

  2. tree hugging sister says:

    Colonial neanderthals.

  3. major dad says:

    Just don’t disturb me or the dogs…

  4. Gary from Jersey says:

    So now we’ll have additions to the House of Windsor webbed toes collection?

  5. Hubby will be attending a party being held at North Camp by the Brits, the Aussies, the Kiwis, and the Canucks in honor of the royal wedding. I’ll be sleeping 😉

    Hopelessly Unromantic Cabbages need not dampen joyful enthusiasm of the Romantic True Believers. Oh, to see Catherine step out of the car in her gorgeous wedding gown! And to witness the happy couple’s iconic Buckingham Palace Balcony Kiss!

  7. JeffS says:

    Oh, THAT wedding. Yes, I’ve been reading all about it from an excellent, unbiased source.

    Alas, at the time of the royal nuptials, I am scheduled to trim my toenails. So I’ll be missing the blessed event.

    But for those who simply must be practical about this special occasion here are some VIO’s (Very Important Odds) posted by William Hill:

    Color of hat to be worn by Elizabeth II:
    Yellow: 2-1
    Black or Gray: 40-1

    Prince Harry being too inebriated to finish his “Best Man” speech: 25-1

    Kate Middleton jilting Prince William at the alter: 50,000-1

    Yeah, it’s real romantic to have someone inherit an entire country when it was taken by force generations ago and maintained by generations of murderers and depraved despots.

    I might have depraved people in my family tree, I suppose many do, but I see no point in honoring and rewarding their progeny, nor is it the slightest bit romantic to pretend that there is anything special about them.

    Princesses are cute for children, but adults should know better. Besides, it’s unAmerican to celebrate for monarchs.

    I’m still chafing at the Queen speaking before a joint session of our Congress. What would George Mason say?

  10. Dr Alice says:

    George Mason? That guy from “24”? I’m sure he’d have some suitably sarcastic comment to make. 😀

    I keed.

  11. Mr. Bingley says:

    God save the Queen!
    ‘Cos tourists are money!

  12. Donna Donovan says:

    THS, I’ll be thinking of you at 5 a.m. when I’m up watching the wedding!

  13. Yojimbo says:

    No, not the guy on “24′! He’s the guy who invented the mason jar.

    I rate the odds of her jilting the future King of England as multiples of our national debt to one. Before she pulls a stunt like that pigs will not only fly, they will be surpassing the speed of light.

  14. JeffS says:

    This video might soothe the spirits of the egalitarians frequenting this establishment.

    I can’t vouch for its accuracy. But it is amusing.

  15. Kathy Kinsley says:

    Jeff S. – that was a lovely video, and I’ll echo that last statement, “God Save the Queen” – at least till Prince Charlatan can be skipped in the inheritance…

    (And my guess on the tourism part is that it’s pretty accurate – I haven’t investigated the land deal.)

    But, I’m not watching the wedding. I’m not interested. This is America, we can ignore the royals until we go travel over to England to be tourists…(and even then, we don’t have to bow.) 😀

  16. Skyler says:

    That video was absurd. So what is the lesson? Pillage and claim all the land in a nation, and in dozens of generations the government might make a profit?

    So let’s get this straight. They stopped having any control or rightful claim to lands, and they’ve ceded any rents to the government. It seems to me that if they hadn’t given up every bit of the rights associated with the property, it would have been rightfully taken from them. So now they get charity points for their ancestors having saved the integrity of their shoulder to head attachment by giving up wasn’t theirs to begin with? Give me a break.

    If they had any ounce of integrity they would all step down immediately.

    Greg, is that you posting as Skyler?
