Oddly Enough Blog

News, but not the serious kind

How about a greasy kebab, Your Majesty?


Blog Guy, I see Britain’s Queen Elizabeth just spent 11 days visiting Australia. That must be a huge logistical undertaking involving thousands of aides, security folks, drivers….

Nothing could be further from the truth. The queen is remarkably self-reliant, and instructed her staff “not to make a fuss over me.”

They gave her some MapQuest printouts and emergency contact numbers, and sent her on her way. Here, in this top photo, you can see her asking directions in Australia.

Wow, good for her! That’s very impressive!

I say, madam, can you direct me to an institution where I may convert my travellers cheques?
