Oddly Enough Blog

News, but not the serious kind

I say dear, have those voices returned?

Quick quiz: Prince Charles’ wife, Camilla, is seen here reacting violently upon learning…

a) The guy who “married” them was not an actor, but was in fact a real clergyman

b) “Duchess of Cornwall” is just sort of a sarcastic title

c) Her neighbor’s dog is sending her messages again

d) Their supposed two-hour stopover in Canada is actually an 11-day visit

Here’s a tip for readers who are easily confused. Please note our actual caption, below, indicates that the duchess is on the LEFT in this two-person photo, and is not the one in a dark suit holding an umbrella. I know, it surprised me, too.

What she’s really saying is she has had enough of Charles’ witty remarks about the awful coffee-like stuff they drink over in the north, as opposed to the wonderfully brisk stuff they drink over in the Isles!

Though I must say, Charles looks every inch the aristocrat he is… Well done, Charles, old boy!!!

Maybe it’s the meds she took, or forgot to take! ;-)

Well, I am sure Charles must be on meds too.. for obvious reasons…

You know, all this talk about meds among readers of this blog is getting disturbing. All of you, send your meds to me, and I will parcel them out to readers according to obvious need. Mail them to me first-class….

I LOVE the expression on Chuck’s face in this one. It is the only picture of him I’ve seen where the expression ‘WTF?’ is truly appropriate.And Basler – you ain’t getting my meds. No-one is getting my meds. They’re mine, MINE! Without them I am nothing, NOTHING, YOU HEAR?Sorry, what?

Don’t worry, LMR, everybody knows you’re on a very high dose of Placebos, and I’m steering clear of those.

Placebos? But the box says Lithium! Someone has been lying to me and they’re GOING TO PAY!MUA HA HA HA HA HA HA!What?

You ALL have it all wrong. The alien fashionworm that lives in her head is screaming, “Laugh, you silly cow, laugh! It is the only way to explain how you DARE wear this hideous blouse!”

Miss Random, how are things at Mount Isa? Does such a place exist?I am sure Charles must want Camilla to go visit there… maybe he can get her to stay…

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive
 

Leducdor, you THINK only Camilla’s blouse is hideous?What are you on these days?

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive
 

Camilla is being possessed by the woman who originally bought that blouse, in 1972.

Little Miss Random is on batteries?

Well, I AM kind of like the Energiser bunny, I just keep going and going and going and going and going.I’m sure the Mayor of Mt Isa would love to see Camilla there… just not sure if she’s ‘aesthetically challenged’ enough. We gots us some perty ugly womens in this darned country.

And Camilla isnt????

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive
 

LMR, I guess you are on placebos… As you can see, I’ve extremely calm, relaxed and balanced these days, and I’m sure it’s because my lithium is working just fine…And, Robert, no, you can’t have my meds, sorry. You’ll just have to get your own!!
