a-hard-days-night-paul-6Oh, mith! - That is hilarious because, if you've ever watched the pre-race coverage for the Derby, it's just like that video (sans the whimsy).

BTW - if you cross Abbey Road wearing one of those hats, I want to be the one taking the picture!

"Here comes the hat - doo doo doo doo. Here comes the hat. And I say it's alright..."

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I have to disagree with you on all points. Charles is a loony who often doesn't know what he's talking about (eg endorsing homeopathy remedies, which are essentially overpriced water with no proven medicinal benefit). He should leave medicine to the medics, architecture to the architects, town planning to the town planners and climate analysis to the scientists. I'm glad he does work for charity but I'd be amazed if someone in his privileged position (he owns huge swathes of Devon and Cornwall, which brings in £millions each year) didn't feel obliged to give something back.

As for the tourism argument, well I visit historic sites when I'm in a foreign country, and nobody's felt the need to have people still living there. Why should Britain be different? If we got rid of the Windsors would people suddenly stop visiting Buckingham Palace? Of course not. People go to Hampton Court even though Henry VIII's no longer at the banqueting table.

AFAIK none of the top 10 tourist attractions in the UK have any connection with the royal family, with the exception of the Tower of London (built in the 11th century by William the Conqueror) and the V&A museum (in name only). We don't need these people, and they don't deserve to live a life of luxury at our expense. It doesn't help that they're unremarkable, thick people either.

Dear Prudence said:

Speaking of weddings, did you guys hear about Hugh Hefners marriage? The girl is a bunny and is 60 years younger than him!!!! I know shes only in it for the money, hes fricken rich and in poor health. when he dies she will get the money.

Did I mention the 60 year difference???!!!!!

 

 

Ringo is only 56 years older than me...........

omg, haha. That sign is hilarious. There's the same age difference between Paul and I, but I would never date a guy that has the same name as my father, his best friend, and one of my uncles.

I salute the lady who screamed "I love you Paul!" at a tribute band's concert.
