The Goofy Princess Bride?

Blog Guy, I guess like everyone else you’re all caught up in Britain’s royal romance between Prince William and Kate Middleton, right?

charles goof combo 280If by “all caught up” you mean I’d rather be slowly disemboweled with dirty plastic picnic utensils than hear another word about it, then sure.

I thought the engagement might be important to you as observer of significant events that shape our collective destiny.

Oh, right. You mean regarding the Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop? Yes, it’s early days yet, but I think we can work with Kate. We’ve taken some preliminary test photos, and she shows a willingness to explore her goofiness. I think she’ll be okay.

BRITAIN-HORSERACING/That’s wonderful. How can she improve on making goofy faces? After all, it will be a part of her royal duties for years to come.

I have two bits of advice for her.

First, watch your future father-in-law at all times, because he is the Goof Master of the World.

And the second?

Hang on to that goofy face coach in the photo. He may even be better than that coach Hillary Clinton uses. Whatever you’re paying him, it’s worth it.

First off, Kate is pretty. I’m not sure I want a goofy face on her. Not like Fergie, who was another great goofy-facer.

Otherwise, that friend of hers is probably reacting to Kate saying something to the effect of, “So, guess who *my* father-in-law will be?” I mean, it’s quite the trade-off. You’ll be married to the future king, but you have to put up with his dad at the holidays.

Hey BG, glad you volunteered for my next experiment using plastic picnic cutlery. Now if only I could remember where I left it….

Hey! I’m making a face kind of like those too, but mine is in response to all the ridiculous media coverage this is getting.

It seems that all the photos of Royals have them showing a goofy face. Maybe we should explore the possibility that these are, indeed, their ‘normal’ faces. Maybe their faces did ‘freeze like that’ when mugging for the paparazzi one day.
Maybe I just need a medi-donut.
Can an MRI affect brain chemistry? Do I sound like I’m rambling? I think I’m going to send this anyway, just for laughs.

I enjoy that her teeth are perfect in the front, but after that, it’s all Britain!

OMG is that Becky? 10/10/27/its-lard-work-but-someone-has-t o-do-it/

She looks an awful lot like Becky! Did she infiltrate our sweets shops in order to gain intellligence on top secret government recipes in order to go back to Britain and make Prince Charles the perfect banana split sundae?

Just the right touch of cique de sole makeup and dim lighting i think we have the jokers sister incognito.

I see Lamar has been successful in converting the once always-pretty Ms Middleton into a standard British royal family goofy face. She now fits in perfectly with the rest of them.

Good show that man!

Well I am sure all of us have a goofy face in us, somewhere!!!
Prince Charles rocks though…. and the British Public thinks it should be King William and not King Charles…
