Souvenirs: Selling Kate by the crate?
Blog Guy, I see they’re churning out all kinds of memorabilia in advance of Britain’s royal wedding next month.
I’ll bet it will really sell, considering Kate Middleton is so popular and beautiful. Have any artists done an especially unusual job of capturing the charms of this lovely young woman?
Yes, I’m intrigued by the way an Italian artist reproduced the engaged couple in a Christmas creche, casting Kate in a noble, classic visage from earlier times.
Really? Did he do her as a Greek or Roman goddess, or…
No, it looks to me like he’s done her as that dim-witted ventriloquist dummy, Mortimer Snerd, but with more than just the one tooth.
Wow, that is one way to go, I guess. If Kate looks that bad, how did this guy depict Prince William?
Think of an effeminate giraffe wearing lipstick and way too much blush…
