Blog Guy, you haven’t set up any of those fantasy shots  for your readers lately, so I’m guessing you’ve got plenty of money left for that.

Yes, but only for fantasy shots that amuse me. Give me your best shot.

Oh man, the pressure is on. Uh, I know! I want Prince Albert of Monaco, with, um, the rock group ZZ Top!

CANADA/Wow, you don’t make it easy, do you? Okay, here you go, pal.

Thanks. Next, I want Britain’s Queen Elizabeth wearing…

Yes? Yes?

I want her wearing 3D glasses!

Okay, here. Enjoy. You only get two wishes.

Oh crap, I just realized! I should have asked for Prince Albert at that famous film festival in France. Then I could have used that old gag set-up! You know the one?

Sure. Do you have Prince Albert in a Cannes? Looks like you blew it, chump.

He looks pretty normal for a royal… his not having a head full of hair like our Leader of Cool, Prince Charles… does make him quite normal….

Gee, Mr. B, you’re truly psychic! My fantasy shot request was going to be the Queen with asparagus on her head. And boom, just like that, you deliver!

Porsche, Pathfinder, Prius, Pinto, Pilot, Patriot, Prowler….

Prince Albert looks like he is thinking “this is totally awkward.. I don’t even have a 5′o’clock shadow.”

So, does Prince Albert believe he has to dress like Johnny Cash to have an in w/the rock crowd?

Think the Pinto needed a little witch-doctoring, as well as keeping it far from the hot coals…

I could never be knighted. If so, I couldn’t say “That’s no lady, that’s my wife.”
