Who died and made YOU Queen?

May 15, 2009

Blog Guy, Since you seem to be writing about television these days, are you following the great Showtime series, The Tudors?

You bet! I don’t know how the writers keep coming up with these twists. How many wives do you think that dude is gonna HAVE before it’s over, anyhow?

Um, actually six, I think.


It’s not that much of a spoiler, Blog Guy. You can look it up. Right now he’s got Anne, the skanky German wife, but soon…

No! I know too much already! Look at the publicity photo below. It seems the next wife will be Queen Jumbo-Head, who will scare the living bejesus out of Henry, make his hair stand on end and give him the Hootchie-Koochie Eye!

Um, right Blog Guy, whatever you say. I must admit that IS a very revealing portrait. Most of Henry’s wives, you just see a head shot, if you take my meaning…

Well, they certainly don’t come much more blonde than that.

Wait, which one’s the queen? Can queens where tuxedos?

Mr Bob,

As we all can see, the full shot is employed here to draw the attention to something other than The Giant Head and it’s accompanying Giant Lips, Uglified by Some Sort of Surgery.

Let us not be looking too closely at the Hideous Eye Thingies.

That might make us turn into stone.

This is a public announcement.

[…] Collins Starting on a light note, since I know this post is going to be fairly heavy in content, this page features (towards the bottom) a picture of Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who is a pretty good actor, […]
