News, but not the serious kind
I say! What does one call that?
Quick quiz: Britain’s Prince Charles, seen here in a double-breasted suit with a folded handkerchief in his pocket, is looking quizzically at…
a) A tennis match at Wimbledon
b) The races at Ascot
c) The Order of the Garter service at Windsor Castle
d) A dancer at an open-air music festival
Surprisingly, the answer is d).
I say surprisingly because you’d think, having been voted Coolest Leader Dude by readers of this blog, that Charles would have seen dancing before.
You might also think that this being an artsy outdoor festival, he would have shown up in a t-shirt, cut-offs and flip-flops, or that at the very least he would give in to the moment, get with the spirit, and untuck his regimental tie from his fricking belt.
I can’t help it, readers, this is the guy YOU voted for. Do I hear calls for a recount?
