I say! I did not see you there, mon!
Quick quiz: These photos show Britain’s Prince Charles…
a) giving a soldier a fatherly lecture on the need to wash his hair more than once a year.
b) mistaking a camouflaged sniper for the Cowardly Lion, saying, “I LOVED you in ‘The Wizard of Oz.'”
c) mistaking a camouflaged sniper for a reggae musician, telling him, “Wi gwaan hab a bashment time, mon!”
d) mistaking a camouflaged sniper for actress Helena Bonham Carter, telling her, “I LOVED you in ‘The King’s Speech.”
I’m sorry, this was a trick question. It was e) all of the above. Everybody’s a winner this time.
