b) A Monty Python reunion show

d) A tug of war
Sadly, it’s the tug of war, but there is more you need to know.
Prince Charles is attending some Highland games up in northern Scotland, and I guess a good tug of war is just about all they have to brighten their bleak lives up there.
Some of you know I’ve spent years researching what life is like in places without proper entertainment, in the form of cable television, DVDs, on-demand movies and stuff like that.
Don’t worry, the damage to Charles is not permanent. I’m sure once he returned to the Royal Sedan Chair, it was back to “Blazing Saddles” on his portable, battery-operated DVD player.
Britain’s Prince Charles laughs as he watches the tug of war competition during the Mey Highland Games in Caithness, northern Scotland August 7, 2010. Charles holds the title of ‘Chieftain’ for the games.
