Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
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….
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?
Blog Guy, it seemed to me that Britain’s Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, really had to do some silly stuff on their long trip to Canada.
I mean, cowboy hats, a stagecoach, canoes, stuff like that.
Don’t worry about William and Catherine. At least they managed to avoid visiting fishmongers, which is the worst royal duty there is.
Blog Guy, as someone who hangs out with the power elite, can you tell me how they manage to stay in shape? I mean, they must get free food anytime they want, so how do they cope with all that?
Advertising staff, today we’re here to honor Lamar, whose work on the Guinness Stout account has been pure genius!
Gosh, thanks, Boss. You’re much too kind…
I say, my good man, are you the local fishmonger?
Well, I must say, there is a vile odor here!
You smelt something bad? Say, did you come to carp, or are you here just for the halibut? Get it? Halibut? I got a million of ‘em!
Blog Guy, you haven’t written much about Britain’s royal family since the big wedding. Please fill us in on their activities this week.
Blog Guy, that royal wedding is getting really close now, so how about some more of your expertise? I believe you mentioned a royal carriage would be used for Prince William and Kate?
Blog Guy, you have to help me. That royal wedding is in two days, and I don’t know how to act around the queen! Our invite hasn’t arrived yet, but we live in rural Indiana, and mail takes a while to get here.
Um, could you even get from Indiana to England in time?
Ah, of course. Well, you’re in luck. We’ve just run yet another etiquette piece, specifically advising lower class losers on how to behave around royalty.
So Blog Guy, I don’t understand why you’re devoting so much time to that wedding with Kate Middleton and that guy she’s marrying. It doesn’t seem like your kind of thing.
It wasn’t, but now it is. Let’s just say maybe I think it’s going to be more eventful than some folks expect.
It turns out when Kate Middleton marries Britain’s Prince William in a couple of weeks, her family is going to stay someplace called the Goring Hotel while they are in London. It may be part of the Econo Lodge chain, but I could be wrong.
These photos above and below show where William’s family lives, and on the right you can see the itty-bitty place where the Middletons will be.
