News, but not the serious kind
Mystery brunette with Prince William?
Blog Guy, I’m confused. I was walking past a toy shop in London and I saw a doll that looked like Prince William.
He was packaged with a female doll dressed as a bride. She looked vaguely familiar, but I couldn’t place her.
Ah, she looks like that Hollywood actress, Minnie Driver.
Jeez, Blog Guy, doesn’t it seem strange to sell Prince William and Minnie Driver dolls together, like they’re a couple.
I guess maybe he used to go out with her before his recent marriage. Wait. On closer inspection of those dolls, I’m not sure that’s Prince William at all! It may be Moose, from the Archie Comics.
By golly, I think you’re right. That’s Moose in his high school band uniform! But how does Moose know Minnie Driver?
Forget about Minnie Driver. The bride doll is obviously Veronica, another character from the Archie Comics.
Boy, Moose and Veronica getting married! Who would have seen that one coming?
Well, the toymakers in Britain, obviously….
