If You Follow the Logic, Harry Would Be King ...

As they said here in the Daily Mail, when you've just made it sound like the Queen is more than 200 years old, there are probably quite a few ways of recovering from the faux pax. However, turning to her and giving her a sly wink is probably not the wisest of those ways ... then again, this is the same guy who greeted Prime Minister Tony Blair with: Yo, Blair. How you doing?

Everyone had hoped that our gaffe-prone president would manage to host the state visit without any hiccups. Their doubts were apparently well-founded ... after all, his track record hasn't been so hot.

In 1991, when his father was in power, Dubya once admitted to the Queen he was the black sheep of his family and then turned to her and asked "Who's yours?" Barbara Bush stepped in and warned the monarch: "Don't answer that." The Queen, wisely, did not reply.

Oh yeah ... I bet she was really looking forward to this trip ...

Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl
But she doesn't have a lot to say
Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl
But she changes from day to day
I want to tell her that I love her a lot
But I gotta get a bellyful of wine
Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl
Someday I'm going to make her mine, oh yeah
Someday I'm going to make her mine

    Can Obama just kick him out now? Everyone likes him! We don't need an election! Obama actually knows how to properly talk to diplomats and important figures. "Yo, Blair! How ya doing!"??? Bush, shut up. You're not Joey Tribbiani, and Friends ended 3 years ago. Obama, the country's yours. Take it. Now. Please. Don't make me beg.

    If that fails, then (as was mentioned in the last blog entry) I'm all for the U.K. to take us back. I'll get to go to the U.K. without a passport, I'll get to watch more soccer (I mean football), and everything sounds cooler with a British accent. Go ahead...try it. You know it does.

  2. Now I have the mental image of Tony Blair looking back and saying, "Yo, Bush ... how you doing?"

    That was the best laugh I've had all day ... good one, Mini Twin!
